So I'm 10 days post op and on a soft food, mushie diet right now. I was able to add fresh fruits today, which I am VERY excited about. However, I am HUNGRY!!!! And it's not just head hunger that I've read about, I am hungry!!!!

I have absolutely no restriction when I eat, which I understand is normal, but I can eat waaaaayyyy more than I should and am not having any problems with the size bite I take or how long I chew.

Is this normal? Or am I just abnormal?!?!?!

I'm the same way.... I've been very hungry. Saw my surgeon yesterday and he said it's time for a fill. I had my surgery on May 3. Hang in there. We can do this.

It's completely normal! It's called bandster hell for a reason--it's so hard, because without restriction, you have to rely on the same old willpower that none of us really seemed to have enough of in the first place!

It gets so, so much better as you approach and achieve restriction. For now, concentrate on making good food choices (within your doctor's guidelines), and limiting portion size. You will be hungry---but there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

(Be careful with fruits. They are good, and healthy---lots of nutrients. But the higher glycemic ones can trigger blood sugar spikes that in turn trigger hunger. If you have fruit, try to have it in the context of a meal that also contains Protein and a little heart-healthy fat; this reduces its glycemic impact. Every little bit of hunger control helps!)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
