@TaylorMade4One hang in there dear. Did you have Sleeve or Bypass? Maybe talk to your surgeon about this. In both cases there should be some relief from hunger in the first few weeks. So sorry you are experiencing this

I think it depends on our surgeon. My 2-week pre-op is full liquid. I drink 3 Protein Shakes and 1 clear Protein daily to get 90grams of Protein
Mine is food until the 26th I don't need to starve myself but I feel like sometimes I go to extreme measures when doing things because I just want to be perfect. Which I can't be I know.

All went well. For the most part the pain feels like acid reflux??? Pop cycles help sooth the burning feeling but still there. Protein Shakes is helping too. [mention=338343]TaylorMade4One[/mention] are you still hungry? I’m kinda getting that way too.
Yes, I'm STARVING!!! Nothing to chew since sunday when I had a salad. Every time I take a sip of liquid in 3-4 seconds after I feel a pain. Not sure if its because the liquid is going around the gas..How in the world will I do this for 14 days??!!!

Let's hope it is merely residual soreness from having tubes put down your throat and into your trachea and stomach. Even with the most skillful insertion things are going to get a little bumped and prodded around. Give yourself a week or two and see if it doesn't get better on its own. Yeah I know, you want relief and you want it RIGHT NOW! Instant might work for coffee but even instant oatmeal has to cook for a minute or 2.Sorry about life, but it is what it is!👸

How do you distinguish between head hunger & true hunger after surgery? Trying to prepare myself mentally for this part.


For me head hunger is seeing food, seeing others eat and wanting it. Simply just thinking I’m hungry. True hunger is stomach hurting & growling. I haven’t had true hunger yet I’m 10 days post.

So head hunger is " Gee that looks good, I wish I could have some!" real hunger is " oooh that hurts, it hurts so bad, I've got to find something healthy to rid myself of this pain and gnawing in my stomach!" sorry but that sounds more like gastritis or an ulcer flare to me! And I have both.😳

Thanks. I was thinking some people "felt" head hunger in their tummy. I'm blaming the lack of food for my non-functioning brain.

On my day(September 5th) I am on a similar time plan, report in at 5 AM, 7AM for ,my surgery. Do me a favor okay? Give your son a little 💘 and attention for me, you see I am a " Spectrum Sister" , although I am on the Asperger end of autism. I have still felt the sorrow of being in a world you can't always understand. When you are not Neuro-typical. you have a different mother-board it functions but we are not wired quite the same! Love to you both from Ohio and me, Your Frustr8😪

Hey all had my sleeve Monday the 13th. After 3 days of pain and unable to keep Water down I am feeling good. I have a little belly pain but nothing major. Having trouble getting in the 64oz of liquid. It is really hard for me. The nausea is completely gone. I just find it surreal. Just woke up and everything is over🤗. Happy, excited 😃 😜. I was feeling really down. For anyone who is post op just hang in there the pain and nausea will go away. For those of you that are pre op don’t let the pain from the first few days discourage you. I honestly did at first.

So happy you are feeling better!! I moved on to soft foods today because my Nutrionist told me I could do it as soon as I got home from the hospital, I just wasn’t ready until now. I had a 2 oz cup of sabra hummus so I am hoping it sits well!
