I'm 10 months out from RNY . Lately I've noticed I am feeling exhausted. I'm taking multivits and B complex and calcium. I really think I'm not getting enough protein, so I still drink an Atkins shake every other day. I don't go bac****il March for my 1 year appt. Any other suggestions?
Are you taking B12? In a sublingual, nasal spray or shot? Are you taking iron?
When did you last have labs done? If you're really exhausted now, you might want to get some done now instead of waiting a couple months.
When you say you think you're not getting enough protein, what does that mean? How much are you getting?

Exhaustion can be a symptom of iron deficiency; don't depend upon an internet diagnosis. Go see your PCP and get an expert opinion.
