Re: clothes don't fit :(

It's totally normal. You lose weight...but still can't fit in your pants. Your tummy and insides are VERY swollen still. It's only 6 days since your surgery. Things will get better I promise. But take my advice and DO not wear them anyways. Your tummy will HURT when your done.

I would say around week 3 I could wear my regular jeans with a belt again. Most of the time this was pretty comfy. If I was riding in a car for a long time dressed like this I would be tender at the end of the day. But for the most part I've been back in all my clothes pretty normally since 3 weeks.Do yourself a favor and run to the store and find some larger or elastic waste bands to help with your tummy.
Hang in does get better!

Re: clothes don't fit :(

Nothing's wrong with you I went through the same thing, I lost 4 pounds but none of my pants or shorts fit me post-op. It's that darn swelling. I got myself a few loose sundresses to tide me over until the swelling went down. Now that I'm 5 weeks post op, I still weigh the same, but I'm able to get into my shorts and pants now!

Give yourself time, your clothes will fit again.

Re: clothes don't fit :(

It's been 3+ months and I still have a problem with this.
I lost six pounds, and everything is too big. I bought a pair of nice capri's that fit. 2 days later, they didn't fit. Seems to come & go.
Eventually it has to get better.

Re: clothes don't fit :(

Hi, I am almost 9 weeks and lost 11lbs but I still can't wear jeans or pants, so I am wearing dresses or tops over elastic wait Capri pants, hope it goes down soon!
