Gallbladder removed last week QUESTIONS!



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

9 months post up, had gallstones so bad and one got stuck in my bile duct...had 2 procedures and had my gallbladder removed. Was in the hospital for 7 days. Finally home and can eat but holy crap I feel like a zombie and need to eat everything. I eat and get hungry instantly. Wtf is going on?? Anyone experience this constant hunger after having gallbladder removed as a WLS patient?

Does this go away?

Did you gain weight after?

How are you dealing with it?

Please let me know!!

I'm not sure this will be helpful, as I had my gallbladder out decades before the bariatric surgery, but I don't recall any particular hunger issues associated with the surgery. I had gained weight; I continued to gain weight, but I think that was more to do with eating the wrong things and not exercising at all, basically.

I'd suggest giving yourself a week or two to stabilize, but if it continues to be an issue, consult your doctor and nutritionist.

How long have you been out of the hospital?

The whole not eating much before/after surgery and being around disgusting hospital food for a week could have you starving and your body just trying to catch up.

If it was a month ago or something well that's a very different story

Today is day 2 out of the hospital. Everything I eat, I’m dying of hunger like 20 min later looking for the next thing to eat. I feel like a zombie lol I’m hoping this is temporary! Scared of weight gain!!

I wouldn't be too worried at that point sounds like rebound hunger to me

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
