I'm 5 weeks out. Able to eat almost anything. It's 3am and I feel..almost hungry. I can't tell if it's hunger or if it's my sleeve dumping what's left in there. I ate three times today, about 4oz per meal, and had 20oz of fluids about two hours ago. It's not the same hunger feeling as before..but my sleeve feels empty. It's 3am for Pete's sake.. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes, you are doing well at 5 weeks. Sometimes adding a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) helps (like Prilosec) since it might be stomach irritation. My trick, whenever I am unsure of hunger is DRINK! Drinking can fill you up for a little while so you can get back to sleep...

I have always had to have some form of Protein at night to get me through to the next day. I small handful of nuts if you can handle it or cheese , yogurt, even a Protein Shake, something that will help you make it through.

I have experienced the feeling you are talking about a few times and found that this was the only solution for me.

3 meals at this stage is not enough. Protein intake is so important and if you are only having 3 meals you are not getting in enough. It won't hurt you to have a bit of protein later in the evening....

Okay. :)

I ended up just going to sleep. Today is the first day I haven't needed to take my zofran since surgery, and it's weird. I'm trying to eat smaller portions throughout the day, but even before the sleeve I was only eating once a day. Hard habit to break.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
