Question for post op



Recommended Posts

Completely. Most likely head hunger. Just stick to your plan. About 5 days post, I was actually hungry. Some get hungry and some don’t. Be sure to listen to your stomach, not your head.

Thank you it’s good to know I’m not out here alone on that!

The Myth that everyone loses their appetite. God, I wish people would stop perpetuating this.

It's true that some people lose their appetite for months. Some folks are nauseated and have a tough time.

But many MANY folks could eat their own leg off right after surgery they're so freaking hungry after the starvation liquid diet.

Real hunger can be cured by healthy food choices.

"Head hunger" is when you've had healthy food but you still want a Big Mac with a donut chaser.

One is physiological...one is mental.

After surgery, you're quite literally starving.

I have just got sleeved Monday! I’m home now and feeling pretty good, but I seem to feel hungry for everything even though My stomach could never take it! Is this normal?

Hey justagrirl77, how is it going 2 weeks later? Feeling any better?

Make sure to keep drinking lots of Water, >80 oz per day. I went thru a stall recently for 7-10 days, even gained 1 pound. I was getting the same hunger feelings, just wasn't drinking enough water. Increased my Crystal Light intake the past week or so and I'm back to losing weight again. Give it a try!

I’m feeling much better just tired..I also am still feeling hungry especially when my family eats their food! But you have some good advice and I will try to get more fluids....I try to drink b4 I go to eating something because a lot of people say it’s not hunger but that u need something to drink!

My procedure is in 2 days and I was wondering about this. Head hunger will definitely be an issue for me [emoji15]

It truly is there...but what I do is measure out exactly what I’m suppose to have and set a timer for 30 seconds in between each bite...it helps me to fill up much faster...eating slow is definitely the key...also try to stick to low carb stuff it will help you out!

That’s awesome advice thank you! I’m so anxious. Haven’t slept for days

It’s hard to sleep when your surgery date is getting close...I don’t think I slept a wink the night before, but it will be here and gone before you know it! Rest up cause being in the hospital you won’t get any rest!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
