3 days postop sleeve and HUNGRY



Recommended Posts

If you can stomach the Isopure zero card drinks are doing great for me! I got to start mushies today (partially cause I am loosing weight to fast.............. like who would have thought that would be a problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -21 lbs)

I am so full from the ground beef and Beans from the burritos I made the kids for dinner.....I think I might pop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but I would call your dr. get advice from his / her nutritionsit. But I can say that the 80 g of Protein I get from the iso pure is making me never want to eat! (and my nails are growing like crazy!)

I lucked out with my Isopure RTD...... I stopped by GNC and they had 5 cases of the RTD that were expiring the end of August and he marked them down to 2.19 each and I got him to take another 50 cents off and used my card and a cupon so it was about 1.17 each...... I knew it would be no problem to get them drunk before they exipred,

I sed the powder when I had my band..... I hated that..... but the bottles are not bad....... though I had to get all the same flavor...... orange bannana pineapple.

But I just go in once a week and pull out wha tis expirining and he gives it to me cheap....so I tried the other flavors. I like the grape the best.

Because of all the running I do.....if I get hungry like the band.....i need to have something in the car that is rtd in case I can not get something at a fast food place that is healthy and easy to eat and drive........ it is hard being a part time taxi driver to the 8 kiddos!

I have a few issues with blood sugar and dropping that I need to watch when I got to agout 165 lbs......and I have yet to figure out how to drink w/o a straw from a McDonalds cup w/o wearing it (they have the light lemonaide!) and Going into a QT or Quickie mart....is not always an option cause it means unloading the kids.............. that is so much easier said than done!

Of the flavors I tried, the grape was the best. They did not have the orange pineapple banana flavor at my GNC - that might have been okay. I made jell-o shooters out of the ice raspberry flavor adding it to raspberry jell-o - those were okay too although I didn't eat all 36 of them!

Hungrygirl---I TOTALLY understand what you are going through! i'm sure some of the wonderful people on here remember me saying the same thing a little bit ago! I felt so hungry after the surgery. I was convinced that something had gone wrong or I was duped (like you said). If you are on full liquids, the Protein Shakes, Jello, sf pudding, and watered thined low fat cream Soups help. Trust when I say that although the liquid phase feels like an eternity, it will pass. I am on the mushies now and it has made a big difference. I am still dealing with feeling "hungry" but, I think a lot of it is learning to interpret the feelings in my insides and my head. It is a marathon and not a sprint and there is constant learning along the way. We are learning how to re-think a lifetime of what our "normal eating" was. I am just shy of three weeks out and I have lost 18 pounds. I am excited to continue to learn about myself. Give yourself some time and you will too. :laugh0:

Please Please don't give in to head hunger!!!!!! keep eating the popcyles they will help. I made homemade chicken Soup and just drank the broth. It seemed to help also bought chewable vitamins. chewed them till they were mush but really helped with the chewing cravings. It won't last forever and it will be worth every minute that you can hang in there. I also chewed gum different flavors and it also helped Just don't swallow. It won't be long and you will be able to eat more than liquid just take it one day at a time. Sounds very silly but it really does help. Also avoid TV it was the hardest thing because of all the commercials.

Water is tough to get down I had to relearn to just sip and I mean just sip. I still will take a big gulp and it hurts burping has really helped alot. I think my new favorite phrase is excuse me! I say it alot and I had my surgery in February but who cares I sure don't and all my friends laugh now or say God bless you. I think that is funny too!

That is now my newest most used phrase as well...sometimes they just pop out of me with no warning -- if I know they are coming, I at least have enough time to cover my mouth and the sound is softer; but I do it alot. I asked Dr. Campos if I will always be belching like a sailor or if that would subside and he said, eventually it will subside. Thank goodness.

I have finally got past the burping issues, but I have a different embarassing problem. For me, my stop signal is a very loud, obnoxious sounding hiccup. My body doesn't care if I am at home, work or a very nice restaurant, when it reaches the point where it knows I have had enough food, out comes the loud hiccup. My family thinks it is hysterical and if we are in a restaurant, they think it is fun to mimmic me to draw attention away from me.

I used to have that a hic up when I was banded. That seems to be my problem now. I have no signal. I have to guess how much to eat. Sometimes I guess wrong and then am either in a lot of pain or I am doing that watery mouth thing. I am getting better at it though.

Even though I have the signal, I am still bad about not listening and taking just one more bite. It is that last extra bite that does me in every time!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
