One Month Post op

Its been a little over a month since my surgery . I am down 25 lbs so far. The pain from surgery is gone and the only side affect I have lingering is fatigue. I am still very very tired , and get very tired easily .  I go back to work to a new job next week . I decided to leave the hospital job I was working at . It was very stressful and not to mention very physical . I cant imagine having to do that job 12 hours a day in the near future with the energy level I currently have. So I am excited to start my new job . 

The supplements I have to take are difficult for me to get down . Because i have issues with taking anything with artificial sweeteners in them ( I get horrible migraines ) I found some supplements that are all vegan , all natural blah blah , but i have to break them open to take them and oh my do they not set well . I am going to try one more kind to see if i can try them , but if that does not work i may need to get IV infusions of my supplements. With Gastric Bypass supplements are really really important. You can crash and get really sick really fast if your levels drop quickly. 
So its something i need to stay on top of . 

Over all things are going well. I am really happy with the amount of restriction i have post op this time around. After my sleeve surgery I never felt like I had any restriction , or stopping point after eating, even early on post op . But I can not eat much at this point and I am very full. So I am very happy with that ! 


  1. Congrats on the weight loss and new job! You will adjust eventually and should not be so tired. Make sure to get enough sleep and get all your water in, that helps me a lot!


  2. Glad to hear your doing well. I hope you find what works for you with the vitamins and supplements.

  3. Thanks y'all. The Vitamins and supplements are still a struggle to get in ! ugh
