Wow...don't know about you but Rosehips scared me straight!! I didn't think you'd be hungry so soon post op. Geez...I'm quite concerned how I'll do just one week pre-op on a liquid diet. I don't even know if I should consider doing this now??? :(

I hope you can get thru this difficult time. I'll be thinking of you!

From my experience, most of us are not hungry after surgery. For me I was nauseous after all bites of food so food was not a comfort, I was not hungry & before the surgery I knew I was saying bye bye to food overall.

The other thing that helped me was a one month required preop diet. It was not just liquids but it was a diet from my doc. I hated the diet but he makes everyone do it so the liver shrinks and then he has an easier field to work in. If he had not "taken" my food away for that month I know I would have been flipping out for food. But I was already divorced from it. Good for you for reviewing if you are ready. Only you know. I wish you the best

I SUGGEST you type COMPLICATIONS in to the search box & read real life accounts of people's misery & near death experiences. People can get a leak in the staple areas without eating in the first 3 weeks. Your head seems to be telling you to ignore the chances of a leak for some momentary satisfaction.

When I had my surgery I was on a 3 week post liquid diet. All food had to be dripping off the spoon' date=' then I went to purred food.< /p>

The sugar free popscycles r a good idea. Jello, sugar free pudding doesn't drip off the spoon but it is real soft.

A lot of us don't enjoy the shakes but you are only drinking what? 4 oz at a time? And you are going to loose a lot of weight this month if you comply. Then again if you eat something that causes a leak YOU WILL LOOSE A TON OF WEIGHT CAUSE YOU WILL BE VERY SICK FOR ABOUT 2 months, more if you are unlucky. You will be away from your child for weeks as you are struggling in the hospital to live. Just read the complication stories.

If I sound harsh & mean to you it is because I care, yes you are a stranger but you are a fellow large person who wants a better life. Follow the rules, I am ecstatic with the results I am getting, you will be too.[/quote']

Thanks. I know it's head hunger. It's just really hard emotionally sometimes. That's for the reality check.
