I find that getting in the required Protein does help curb hunger.

Good evening from frigid WNY!

I was sleeved on Monday, February 9th, 2015. On my first day home, I was getting in 2 Protein shakes and sips of Water. Each day I added something. sugar free, fat free pudding made with Lactaid skim milk, low fat cottage cheese and have dealing well.

Today, being one week out, I added a third Protein shake. Plus, 2 - 16 ounce bottles of Water (sipping throughout the day).

I was able to walk the treadmill twice. Each time 10 minutes. Nothing strenuous!

Stay focused!

Take care!

Nancy

You should follow YOUR surgeon's plan. If you feel ready to advance to the next stage, call your surgeon's office and ask to speak to the dietician, nurse, whoever he or she has in charge of post-surgery eating. Discuss it with them and see if they will either give you permission to advance, or possibly find other ways of addressing hunger (you may need a PPI, or to drink more Protein Shakes, something like that). IMO, don't start eating off your doctor's plan just because other people on the internet are eating stuff you aren't.

What did your doctor tell you to do? Wait 6 more days? Then why not wait 6 more days?

I'm starving too. 7 days post op. I'm so ready for purred Soups and smoothies and Protein Shakes. I'm so weak from hunger I think. All I eat is why Protein 46 grams 2 xs a day and broth 2-3 times a day. I'm tolerating Jello well. So sick of it. I might try a Protein Shake sat. Tuesday I can eat purred foods. Every 10 days I get into the new phase. Seems awful long Everyone else is eating more food than my surgeon recommends. Kinda of weird.

I would advise sticking with your surgeons plan. I know its hard but you are using food as mdeicine right now....to help you heal. If you can't stick with a plan, then it will make it harder to stick with it later when you can eat anything, and the temptation is strong. Find something to distract you that is not food... it will get better soon. I swear, at some time sooner than you think, you will be able to eat anything.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
