: Has anyone had a problem with weight loss after surgery?James has lost a LOT of weight since his anterior fusion.He has gone done almost 4 sizes.(yes,I might be jealous)LOL!No I am not and I am serious.At first I thought it was because he only drinks water all day and lots of it.Almost two gallons a day.But now I am starting to get concerned.He was once beefy.Now he is getting a little on the skinny side.Is this something to be concerned about?He says he can't eat anymore because his back hurts too much if he gets full.Hopefully this is a temporary problem.Honestly my cooking is pretty good!
I also lost a lot of weight because I could no longer work out and lost muscle mass and my appetite decreased due to inactivity and pain. Normal reaction!
