Hi everyone I am new! I had my surgery on 4/16 and I am STARVING. I wish i had gotten the no hunger but I just feel miserable without being able to eat. Is there any remedy for this? Also, I am a worry wort, so when typically does the weight start to drop? I’m still at my surgery day weight.

Last question- everytime I get up and try to do things like even walk to the car, I get winded, light headed and need to sit down. Is that normal?

Thank you all!!

Drink drink drink. Have some Water, Protein water, Protein Shake or Bone Broth that has protein. Maybe head hunger? I’m the opposite and never feel hungry so I’m constantly forcing fluids down. I’m 12 days post op. Since they pumped air into you plus all the iv fluids you were on at the hospital your body is probably still trying to get rid of that Fluid and you probably still have some gas in your tummy. You’ll start loosing the weight. I’ve been a slow loser but it will definitely start coming off.
& being 12 days out, I’m still constantly tired and tire easily. It’s normal! It gets better every day. Rest & try to increase your activity daily.

You got this! Don’t give up. It gets better.

You’ll begin to drop the surgery Fluid and weight around day 5 in my experience. Enjoy the next phase!

Hi Molly,

I had my surgery on 4/16 as well. Like you I am hungry. I’ve heard so many saying they had to force liquids down and I agree that it could be “head” hunger but like others have suggested, keep drinking the Protein drinks, and Bone Broth. We will get through this!

Same here!! Mine was 4/16 and it’s been rough! Trying to get my Water in and I want real food. I am so hungry I feel like. Although I guess it’s getting easier, I’m not sure. I will say I haven’t had a bowel movement since Monday so I’m concerned... but other than that I am trying to stay hydrated.. plus this Vitamin schedule is awful. :-/

My Dr said for constipation take Milk of Magnesia. Luckily I stayed away from pain meds because that is the culprit. I don’t start my Vitamin regimen until 2 weeks post op. Not sure I am looking forward to that! Just make sure you are getting in your fluids. That’s the most important. Good luck!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
