Hi

You shouldn't feel hunger pains at all with the sleeve or the MGB. My previous surgeon didn't properly reduce my fundus during my sleeve surgery and I still never truly felt hungry after my surgery or throughout the years. The only time I felt hungry was when I ate sugary foods which makes you crave more sugary foods. It's a never ending cycle if you don't contain it. You can eliminate that with the MGB. Many people who've had the MGB avoid sugar because they fear dumping. Hunger will be the least of your worries with the MGB.

Hey. Thanks for the reply. I didnt feel any hunger pains for while after the sleeve but as time went on i did start to get that empty and hungry feeling back again. And now 5.5 years later i get hungry about like i did before surgery. I have almost no restriction anymore and can eat pretty much whatever I want. Which is one reason I chose to switch to mgb. Hoping this will get back the restriction i need plus get rid of the horrible reflux i have because of the sleeve.

Sounds like you might be carb sensitive. Too many carbs can mimic hunger as well. I hope the MGB works better for you. It's working for me. I wish you well on your upcoming surgery.

I'm a year post op from VSG and already have very little restriction... I have to say though... I don't get much actual hunger... but I get a LOT of head hunger... I think a lot of that is because my medication makes you crave carbs [emoji14]

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
