I have no energy whatsoever ever

Hi jojo

I didn’t eat much for a weak or so post op, used melt in the mouth nurofen and windeaze tablets for pain and trapped wind. You will struggle to go to the loo if your not drinking enough water which is usually the main course. You could try some thin soup, and try adding some supplement into your diet like a dissolveable multivitamin. This phase is temporary after about 10 days or do things will ease up and u will start introducing sloppy food and I am sure your energy levels will pick up. I am 5 month post band 4 stone lighter, eat nice meals just less of it, and higher quality. I am sure you will get there
