First of all Where can I find a website that features african american Medifast recipes? Thanks in advance for any answer. Second question of mine... I have noticed since my GBS that taking a shower wears me out. I have a really hard time breathing and it makes me dizzy. I am one week PO and I was wondering if anybody else is having this problem. I felt great this morning without any dizziness, until I took a shower..

Any input would be great!.

Thanks,.

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

Everything makes you tired the first few weeks after.

Surgery.

Remember that you had MAJOR.

Surgery.

And it will take a while for your body to get back to "normal.".

Just rest and get your fluids..

Take care!.

Thank you all for your replies. I guess this answers my questions about being light headed and weak in the knees also. I know I just had major.

Surgery.

I'm expecting more from my body than what it is wanting to give me!.

Yep, it happens. When you get in a warm or hot shower it dilates your blood vessels and your BP will drop and you can get lightheaded, dizzy, etc. (same reason they tell you not to stay in hot tubs longer than 15 minutes). Take it slow and easy and rest when you need to. You are still recovering from major.

Surgery.

I was due to go back to work Monday after my.

Surgery.

I was 2 weeks post op. Figured if I was going back to work, I should be able to do some things around the house. Went down 3 flights of stairs to the basement (I live in a townhouse) did laundry folded clothes, carried a basket back up 3 flights of stairs, put it away, got in the shower washed my hair and was half way through shaving the first lef when I was just done. I was exhausted and couldn't continue. Turned the shower off, got out of the shower and laid down on my bed in my terry cloth robe for a.

Nap.

!.

The gist of that story, give yourself time, take rests when you need to and don't overdo it!.

Good Luck!.

I am glad to hear this. I thought it was because I was fat and out of shape. I thought I was just getting lazier...
