    Unhappy When does it end?

    Hi i had surgery little over 2 weeks ago, I feel depressed, I don't feel good at all, I feel weak and sick to my stomach all the time. I am following diet to the letter, but I feel like maybe I made a mistake. Like I should have just got a bunch of lipo. My question when does this get better?

    hi I am sorry to hear you do not feel great. I did not have your problem, so I can't tell you how long it will last. However I think you should go and see your doctor about it and tell him you are feeling depressed. It is best that it gets sorted out as soon as possible. All the best

    You just had major surgery, of course you are not feeling normal. You should start feeling better every day. Are you meeting your liquid and protein goals? That's how you'll get your energy back.

    Obesity is one of two choices: health or illness. You chose health. That's not a mistake.

    Instead of being depressed get excited about this amazing new life that's just beginning! My positive attitude got me to goal. It was so much fun!

    Feel better and best of luck to you.

    the first few weeks are hard and you have to keep the end goal in mind. It will get better but you should touch base with your physician. Are you getting enough fluids in or are you dehydrated? I had an issue with that and had to get some fluids.

    Bless your heart! YES it gets way better. About 4 weeks out. NO, lipo is not a great answer. Did you know if you have it and gain weight, it goes to other places? That is, if it was on your stomach it might go to your neck, or back or arms. It doesn't help you.

    VGS is a lifetime tool -- and the first 2 weeks are the hardest.

    Hang in there!
