I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Am 1 month out and have had very few problems. I think it is the same with anything new, there is a.
Curve and time is the key! Be patient with it, follow your surgeon's guidelines, ask here for advice when dealing with something and mostly, listen to your body. It really isn't as bad as it sounds. It is also very normal to become nervous before ths.
But I would not want it any other way!..
No need to panic, but being concerned and scared -very normal before any.
! I don't think you should think in terms of how horrible things are going to be...feels like you are setting yourself up to LOOK for problems that may not happen. So many of us wouldn't have gone through it if everyone had complications...right?.
Assuming your doctor has put you through a battery of tests, including psychological, nutritional, medical etc., you are well prepared, and any OBVIOUS potential problems have been identified or corrected, so now it's up to the skill of the surgeon and your compliance..
As for what to expect the first few months....I'd say you will feel like you've had.
By that I mean, tired, uncomfortable, weak maybe, sore and you will have pain meds for a couple weeks probably....depending on how you manage pain..
I felt super excited, on top of those other feelings as I wasn't thinking of Medifast food 24/7 as I usually did. I was READY to get my life back, blend in as a "normal" sized person, and was really psyched to do what I needed to do. I think these things are important to be successful, even though you face a time of a lot of unfamiliar territory..
One I completed MY testing, I kept telling myself that my doctor had done this day in and day out for 10 years. He knew his anatomy and could recognize problems while in there, or know how to correct them, should I be one that developed a complication afterwards..
I believe it's like childbirth....it's different for everyone. Some good, some not so good, but the good outweighs the not so good in the end. I had no complications/problems...
I am 6 weeks out. It is not so dire. Honestly I am not having any problems I can eat everything and anything just in very small portions. 1st what type of.
Are you having??..
I have just started the process also. I am frightened of the.
, but then I have never had any. I read everything I can find out here. I figure that If someone else has had it happen, then if it happens to me I won't be worried. Another words if I get nauseous a lot at first, I won't be as concerned that something is wrong with me because I have read about it happening. Maybe you could look at it that way?..
Hi Daniella, My Gastric bypass was on June 14th. I am just about 2 weeks out. I have to tell ya, I was not prepared for the mental part of the struggle as much as I was ready for the physical. There is pain of coarse, but the pain meds really help. Get up and moving as soon as they tell you to. Walk as much as you feel like it in the hospital.
That will work the soreness out better than any med. Try your best to drink. I have to tell ya I am still really emotional and cry a lot at times. It's almost like you are grieving in some way. I can't really pin point what makes me feel so emotional, but others have stated the same thing.
Just pray and get ready for a new you. Even with all the ups and downs I am glad I had the.
I'M 5 WEEKS POST GBS I'VE LOST 45 LBS AND I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU IT WILL BE EASY, BUT IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH HAVING THE GBS AND IN A MONTH OR 2 YOU WILL FEEL BETTER AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO ENJOY THINGS YOU HAVEN'T IN A LONG, HANG IN THERE THINGS WILL GET GETTER IN TIME..
I am 6 wks out today and I went through a bad case of the "regrets" about 2 wks ago, if you would have asked me then I would have told you never to do this - ask me today and I say it is the best thing I have ever done. I am down about 45lbs and feel wonderful. I love this site and read it every day - 10+ times a day. Having WLS is the greatest decision I've made - no more regrets...
