Hi everyone,

I am 3 days post op now. I am struggling trying to figure out what it means to be full or hungry. I have no stomach sensations so I don't want to overeat but I don't want to under eat. When did everyone get there sensation of their pouch?

You're not going to feel what full is like until you start eating solid foods. At 3 days post op you're still fully on liquids aren't you?

At 3 days I was definitely still on liquids. Full liquids yes, but certainly nothing blended.

It's hard to get a sensation of being full when you're just on liquids. Once you can have actual soft foods it'll be easier to tell. Are you measuring everything out?

At 3 days post op I was on Clear Liquids but i remember this feeling of being bloated almost. It was hard to drink what I was being asked to drink. I sipped like crazy for many weeks.

Once you get to the pureed stage, you should start to feel a little different.

On day 3 post-op I started with Clear Liquids. It would feel like I was bloated. That's when I would stop. After some time, I could feel the bloating go down. I learned that was the sign of my being full.

Same for me too. I agree with the comments above once you get to purée it's easier to detect.

Water still hurts me and I am 2 1/2 years out!! I add a few drops of Mio to mine and it seems to help and making sure it is not too cold helps also. I have to drink it slowly.
