My surgery was Monday August 13. I weighed in today and I GAINED 8 pounds since my pre-op weight!!!! WHAT IN THE WORLD? Could it be water weight and weight from the IV's? I have done everything required. I have been getting at least 70 grams of protein (via Isopure) and have only had very small bites of sugar free jello and a little broth. Am I doing anything wrong? I won't technically be one week post op until Monday but WHY the gain? Please help!
Weight gain is more than likely due to = fluid retention from the IV.
Give yourself time and it will go away. I gained 30# with my RNY .
