Some people feel very fatigued after weight loss surgery. First, you just had a big operation. Second, you went from eating a lot of food everyday to just having some clear liquids, so your caloric intake probably went down from a few thousand a day to less than a thousand. Make sure you take your multivitamins and drink protein drinks. As your intake increases, your energy level will increase.
