Hi everyone, I’m 4 weeks post op from a sleeve, how is everyone dealing with mood swings? I’ve lost my patience and can get snappy. Thanks Stuart

Though it’s not at all uncommon, I didn’t really have mood swings (anymore than usual I should say, lol). Anyways, I still wanted to say hello and welcome.

Thanks ShoppGirl, I think it was down to the lack of energy, I’ve struggled with eating 800 calories high Protein diet.

Hello and welcome!

I didn't have any emotional issues either. I do hear a lot of people do, I assume because your hormones may be all wacky from the huge change in your body. I am sure it will regulate and you will be feeling better soon.

Ooh I’m not certain that the lack of energy is entirely due to the reduced calories. Although I’m sure that plays a role I think it’s just our bodies are healing and we need more sleep. I was tired for a while too. I just gave into it and took lots of naps. Basically all you can really do. I’m not sure if I was still tired at 4 weeks post op but everyone recovers differently. It’s doesn’t last forever though. Just try to hang in there.

I have found that I am much calmer post-op. Perhaps it is a lack of glucose swings, and perhaps it is a lack of energy later in the day.

Hi, I was getting dizzy spells and got called back to hospital, my blood pressure is either high or low, tests showing my liver and kidneys were struggling, now I have a bit more energy as I move onto solid foods but still not feeling right. Onwards and upwards

I’m sorry. Did they find a reason for your symptoms or at least refer you to someone who can do some more tests? Is it related to surgery or just coincidence time wise? I am glad it sounds like you are feeling a bit better but if it were me I would still want some answers. Especially since you are still not feeling right.
