14 days post op & COVID positive



Recommended Posts

I had a feeling this would happen!

Somehow made it the entire pandemic without covid and tested positive while in recovery from surgery.

I had no idea I had it the first 2 days bc I thought i was dealing with symptoms of dehydration and struggling with hitting my Protein goals for a couple days.

Turns out it’s covid. anybody gone through the same? have any tips on getting through this when you already feel a bit tired and weak?

I’ve already called my doctor and got advised on which medicines/relief I may take that won’t interfere with my post-op medicine regime

Boy talk about bad timing. Did you talk to your family doctor or just your surgeon? I ask cause they have a medicine now that lessens the severity of covid if you take it early enough. It’s mostly for people who are in the high risk category but I wonder if you would qualify because you are recovering from surgery as well as being overweight. Your doctor may not think it’s necessary but you may want to ask. I THINK they said you have five days to start it or it doesn’t help.

I feel for you. sleep and do the smallest amount you can get away with. I have just received my Autumn Covid booster and oh boy is my arm on fire, it sure is working with my immune system.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
