Chris95661 Posted June 24, 2015 Share Posted June 24, 2015 I'm on Day 24. 100% compliant. For the past week, I feel weak, exhausted, and run down. I'm also a post-surgical Gastric Bypass RNY patient. Surgery was many years ago, I lost over 150lb and have gained the majority of it back. My stomach doesn't have any of the restrictions a recent surgical patient would have, by any means. HOWEVER, all gastric patients can have issues with absorption, etc. I recently had a thorough lab panel done and show a Vitamin D deficiency. I started taking 5,000 iu this week. But the bottom line is I feel lousy as the day goes on. The kind of no energy that I need to sit down. And while I realize I carry a good 150 extra pounds on my frame, I've had that for a while and don't typically feel like this. My meals are as big as they can be while not making me feel like I would have to throw up. A gastric bypass patient can definitely throw up if we fill our stomachs too much. I'm feeling defeated on the inside. I've been super public with my Whole 30 and so proud of sticking to it and I want it to be a big success. But I can't go on feeling this lousy. Also, I still feel cravings. No sugar - that's not really my thing. But I could KILL for some cheese and processed carbs. I'm getting nervous that there are only 6 days left and getting close to reintroduction. Any info from the moderators or other members who have had this type of surgery and then done Whole 30 would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for any information you can share.
