Hi guys
I’m 4 weeks post op.
The day of surgery I was 286lbs
I think about a week from that I was 264lbs, but since then I’ve been stalled for 2 weeks(maybe some days).
Currently 259.
I have pain still as if it were the first day all over again.
I literally eat nothing as everything disgusts me. I do try to drink my Protein Shakes, but only get 1 in per day. I drink maybe 30oz of Water daily.

Is this anyone else’s experience? Does anyone have any advice ?

Stalls are very common in the first month or so & can last 1-3 weeks. Also common is the change to our taste buds & some also become sensitive to smells. It does pass but in the meantime it is a lot of trial & error to find foods you can eat. Sometimes a change of shake flavour or brand is all it takes. From week 5 most plans start soft foods. Try some of the foods you’re allowed: maybe scrambled eggs, yoghurt, mince, slow cooked Soups & casserole style foods, etc.

The bigger concerns are the pain, low Fluid intake & consuming very little. Contact your surgeon or go to your nearest medical centre. You shouldn’t still be experiencing pain and you could be dehydrated.

All the best.

I too had the same issue. About 3 weeks after my surgery I stopped losing for almost 2 weeks. I googled and found out that it is common to have a stall 3 weeks post op. After the stall I have continued to lose weight at about 1lb. every other day. Hang in there!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
