No Foxy, My stomach has never really hurt unless I eat too fast or too big of a bite. Have you talked to your surgeon or your NUT yet? I know you dont want to eat, but you must get enough calories to survive (and to lose weight) I know that eating sure isnt as much fun as it used to be for me anymore which is fine by me, I am just eating to survive now,

Hope you feel better soon! Let us know.

It's just a very full feeling. I probably eat too fast. It's not air. Just a really full feeling. Most mornings I wake up and still feel full...I can barely drink my Protein because of the full feeling. Blah

I completely understand. I could go all day everyday and not eat. It's just such a hasell and definately not fun. I also have trouble getting my fluids down. However I do know this is not healthly and I am working on getting more food and Water down. Hang in there :mellow:

It took me awhile to figure out what "full" meant. At first I could barely handle 1/2 an egg without feeling stuffed. I've learned to eat really small portions - every 3 - 4 hours. The full feeling is uncomfortable and I don't care for feeling that way. I also agree that eating is sometimes a hassle but that's not good for me. It's a lifestyle change for me and I'm still getting used to it. Think positive and go for it!

There can be other issues at work. First, how far out are you? If you're still relatively close to surgery, you may still be healing and your pouch may still be swollen. I know that when I had a stricture, eating was very painful because the food wasn't going where it was supposed to the way it should. I would advise getting in touch with your surgeon's office and talking with them.

I felt like that too at first but it goes away after a couple months. Don't eat to fill full, eat until you are no longer feeling hungry or empty inside.I hate the too full feeling.

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
