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]

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
