My husband is just over 5 months post op and all things considered he is doing well. His biggest problem, like you all, is eating enough to maintain and even gain weight! He as lost just over 2 stone since his op. We keep a Food diary, try to choose high protein foods but it is nigh on impossible to get much more than 1800 calories in each day. If he eats too much he’s in danger of dumping, or feeling full and nauseaus.
He is also still very fatigued, but When he is out with friends he picks up considerably which makes me feel that some of his issues are related to his psychological state. I know he is not making things up, but when he doesn’t feel so good, then naturally it makes him feel ‘down’, then it’s difficult for him to lift his spirits. He has seen his GP and is now on an anti-depressant which we hope will help.
Any tips on how to maintain your weight and lift his spirits will be gratefully received. Thank you everyone for your posts, they are of great comfort, it’s good to know we are not alone!
