    I had my bypass on 26th July and feel like I’m doing well.

    I totally freaked out today as I’m feeling so well that I forgot I can’t lift and I lifted a chair!!! I’m so worried that I’ve done some damage to myself!! I don’t feel in any pain and I feel ok, just tired.

    Should I go see a doc?

    Hi Lex

    I hope you are ok after your chair lifting incident. I’m sure we all forget what we are supposed NOT to do! If you are feeling like you have ‘strained’ something, call your team for reassurance that all is ok.

    Feeling tired after major surgery is normal and to be expected really. Your body is undergoing massive changes and trying to heal itself as quickly as possible so it will use up all your energy. Again, if this is becoming problematic, please contact your team for advice. My main snippets of advice are, let your body dictate how much you can do, follow your team’s advice to the letter and, finally, be kind to yourself. Treat yourself with the same gentle care you would to a loved one. You deserve it!

    I’m so excited for you. having weight loss surgery is almost like being reborn: You have a completely fresh start. I can’t wait to hear about all the milestones you will achieve. Please keep in touch 🙂
