JackieJax posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Hi. I started the #januarywhole30 on the 1st and was really motivated and excited. I was also tempted to use surgery on the 11th as an excuse to quit or cave but i did not. I read that the opiods and NSAIDs could be problematic so I'm finally done with those. I also switched to the AIP w30 two days ago. So losing the eggs has helped already. But holy crap i have been lethargic as hell! I'm going into day 23. Just wondering how much of a wrench surgery can throw into my w30 game? Because while I'm reading DaybyDay and keeping up with my FB group....i feel left out, or like I'm not doing it right....or something. I've done w30 several times before, never finished, but i had super energy by like the 5th day of cutting out all the crap. I am healthy overall, trying to take into account the recovery process, and also trying to get some perspective. Considering making it a w60 just to allow recovery and AIP to work itself out....but holy crap man. I have zero energy to get up off the couch. Thanks for listening. I'm sure i am being ridiculous and impatient but wanted to connect with someone who may have experienced something similar. Much love, Jackie
Hi I am a 39 year old mom who has had the vertical sleeve operation (similar to bypass just not the small intestine to put it simply.) i am a healthy weight and workout all the time, I LOVE IT! I will say I replaced my food addiction with excercise. I also have PCOS and a very recently found lump in my breast. While the radiologist says maybe benign he couldn't be sure for another TWO years of testing and my OB/gyn said NOPE! You are seeing a breast cancer dr. She got me in rather quickly and I see him Monday. This has put a lot of things in my life in perspective. I bought the whole 30 book knowing that A) it is NOT A cure for cancer but it is definitely not going to hurt me (sugar has been showen to "feed" cancer) and B.) I need to get my life, sorry, healthy back on track! So I was planning on starting in 1 week, but tonight I decided to wait to see what the dr says. My OB told me if he wants to remove it that it would give me an answer now and not in two years so if he suggests surgery my husband and I decided to do it. Okay so onto my question how long should I wait after surgery (if I have to have it) to start whole 30? Keep in mind it is a relatively minor surgery. I am feeling so out of control of my life and health right now I need to plan even if it's just a start time frame! Thank you so much!
