    I’m going to say what you hear a lot on this forum. Everyone is different so no two recoveries will be the same. Remember you’ve had major surgery so your body needs to heal. And I think it takes a while for the anaesthetic to leave you. All you need to do is eat according to the advice given so you get the right amount of protein to give you energy. Keep walking too, I think 4 times a day is recommended. It’ll get those endophins going and you’ll feel energised. Keep your fluids up, sip and sip some more. Water, tea, coffee or weak sugar free squash.

    But if you really are knackered, I’d say it’s ok to have a nap 🙂

    Perfect advice from you, Chris. Listen to your body and let it dictate how soon you do things.

    Agree with everyone else – listen to your body.

    I had my gallbladder out at the same time as my bypass and I actually gave myself more time for that than I did the bypass!

    I think it can tie in with the feeling that we don’t deserve the bypass or that in some dark corners of our mind, we think we are ‘cheating’ by having wls so shouldn’t give ourselves so much time to recover. What utter nonsense! Yes, it can be perceived as elective surgery but we are doing it to drag ourselves out of the obesity mire that could eventually kill us, after having cost the NHS a fortune.

    We don’t have to justify ourselves to anyone is we make the surgery work!

    Take as long as you feel it takes. Some people heal more quickly than others, regardless of what surgery they have had.
