No weight loss four days post sleeve

Absolutely, is too early to expect any weight loss.  During the surgery and your hospital stay you are given a lot of iv fluids.  Your body needs to get rid of all these fluids and this can take a few days.  Once you mobilize all these fluid you will begin to see a drop in weight.  For now make sure you are takin in enough proteins and start an exercise program.
