I did not, unfortunately due to COVID all non emergent surgeries are postponed and I was just told last week they are looking at April for rescheduling! I'm frustrated but hopeful. I am so glad you are doing well!! Wishing you all the best!!!! ❤️

Howdy, all, I had the gastric sleeve surgery on 1/13/22 so I am 9 days post-op. For the past two days, I have been unbelievably exhausted, fatigued, and achy. I feel like it is getting worse. Today I have been crying almost non-stop. Not because of pain just emotional fatigue I guess. (Kept crying while watching the movie "Air Force One". It is not a sad movie. I am hardly taking in fluids, doing about 8 ounces every hour. Alternating between Water and Premier Protein Clear. Still, no food but can sip broth. I was walking but no longer as it is too tiring and I feel like I will fall. I have not called the Doctor as it is the weekend and the on-call will I'm sure would basically tell me if I am concerned then I should go to the ER. I am thinking maybe I should at least they will probably give me an IV for fluids for dehydration if that's the case. A year ago I had a very bad case of COVID-19, thankfully recovered (still can't smell anything) and since then I have had both VAX shots and the booster. I mention that because the exhaustion is reminiscent of that. Any suggestions? Please help. Thank you!

Test yourself for COVID - and/or just hang in there. I would go to the hospital if your energy doesn't improve by today or tomorrow. Good luck!

Thanks, J'anna, I did take another covid test and should get the results in a day or two. Still very exhausted. I had my first follow-up with the surgeon's office today. They were pleased with my current status. They feel the sore throat was caused by the endotracheal intubation tube which is common. They also felt I am so exhausted due to not taking in needed Protein. I have been doing the protein clear drinks and today they wanted me to restart the chocolate Protein Drinks as they have more protein content. I have been trying but just taking two sips is making me so full and wanting to cough it up due to how think they are. I am to do the shakes for one more week then move to mushy food. Right now I'm mixing some Water with shakes to cut the thickness. I will keep on keeping on hopefully it will get better each day.

As they say, one day at a time. My Roux was Jan 17 and on some days it’s more like one hour at a time. :)

I had my surgery Jan 18. I am feeling great except for the unbearable itchiness! I have been using ice packs. Added in a Claritin this morning. I know it is a normal part of the healing process, but I can hardly stand it. Anyone found any way to relieve it?

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
