My surgery gastric bypass surgery was August 4, 2020. It was without complication and I healed as expected (two weeks back to work). I have been faithful to the diets pre and post op until about 2 weeks ago. I have had food cravings throughout this process and was hoping I would have been one of those individuals who has the cessation of cravings. I am averaging between 500 and 1000 kcals a day. I was just advanced to stage 4, regular diet. I am concerned that I am not going to be successful at this as my weakness, low calorie count and deprivation of carbohydrates has sent me into a dangerous whirlwind of eating. I am petrified that I have overstretched my new pouch and blew this whole endeavor. I am trying to reset this mess by turning back to protein shakes (cup or less) and clear liquids alternating days. I just need to shrink that pouch back to post op size. I don't get dumping syndrome and I'm not really obtaining a feeling of fullness or discomfort with eating. I am so upset! Looking for support. I can't be the only one experiencing all or part of this. Looking forward to hearing from some of you.
