    Help, I can't stop eating

    You can relax, because you are normal. I too began to eat everything right before surgery due to being afraid to not ever be able to eat those items again. I hadn't had a whopper from Burger King like in 7 years and ate a whopper meal, and a lot of my favorite fattening foods before too. You are normal to have these feelings but now that I am 7 weeks post op, I realize I can already eat anything I want but in a very small portion. So you don't have to feel pressured to get it in now. But I don't crave the whopper or most foods I used to eat because you may find that white flour is harder to digest. So even if you tried to eat pizza, you can't eat more than a couple of bites, but it fulfills your craving for that item. Also, I have came to realize that I did this surgery to use as a tool to help me not eat those types of foods so I'm concentrating on better nutrition. and as long as i get my protein in on time, I never get so hungry that I start eating junk. I'm 28 pounds down since surgery and I'm extremely happy! I wish you the best!

    so many post op questions

    Hi! I'm at day 19 post op and I was off pain meds by day 6. She shouldn't be in pain other than soreness from stomach incisions. I was told by my doctor only one flight of stairs to second floor was ok, once or twice a day. Yes, we need to walk to avoid blood clots, but other than walking, No exercise until after 6 weeks. I do not have a drain, so I cannot help you there. At that time, I ate cream of chicken, cream of asparagus, unjury chicken soup flavor (my fav). greek yogurts, strained oatmeal with almond milk. I use myfitnesspal.com which can also be accessed from a smart phone app. It counts all Protein for you when you add what you ate or you can scan the bar code on your food product and it automatically counts protein for you. My doctor said 60-80 grams a day. The easiest Protein shakes are Isopure 0carb 40grams of protein per bottle. You can buy at GNC. Or Premier Protein sold in cartons of individual drinks at Cosco. 30grams of Protein per shake. I hope this helps!! Liz
