Mood and Energy Levels
It is common to experience low energy levels after bariatric surgery. Make sure you have help at home for the first few days, especially if you are a caregiver for young children or elderly family members.
Give yourself time to heal. Intersperse your periods of rest with 10-20 minute walks and deep breathing. You may experience periods of sadness. This is quite normal and potentially related to the medications you may have received while in surgery.
Follow the Stage 1 Dietary Guidelines given to you by your dietitian.
