Day2 banded....I feel hungry? Help!



Recommended Posts

Hi, just got banded Friday, Sept.2nd!

I only did a 2 day pre-op liquid diet, and now on clear liquids---I feel hungry all day, but have been very careful with what I am eating.

I have been eating ice chips non-stop, clear broth, sugar free popsicles and crsytal light.

Dr. said I could have 4 oz. of liquid at a time, up to 64oz. a day.

I feel like my stomach is empty, my stomach actually growled at me a few times.....

I just feel hungry and deprived already and its only DAY TWO!

Any words of wisdom?

Thanks!

Bertie

Words of wisdom? Well, this is the time to prove to yourself how strong you really are. You just need to power through it. Think of how proud of yourself you'll be when you're cleared to go to real foods, but you look back and say "that was so hard, but you know what, I did it."

When can you have Protein Shakes? I was allowed those on day 2... But i had so much swelling that I couldn't drink them. But when you're able to drink those that should help. Can you have sugar free Jello? That also helped me. That's considered a clear liquid...

I am 4 days post op, and today is the first day i actually felt hungry. I have been on Protein Shakes, broth, Water, etc..since the day i came home from hospital. I had some sugar free applesauce today, and could only eat about half of the cup! but it did help curb my appetite a bit. Cant wait til i move on to the mushies!
