Post surgery how does full feel



Recommended Posts

Full feels different now. Too full caused pain almost in between my boobs. I’m having trouble telling the difference between full and being sore from surgery. How does full feel for everyone?

What are you "eating" ? This close to surgery typically folks are on purees only and 1 oz at a time at set intervals. I don't get a real full feeling anymore, I just lose interest in eating. Take your time and don't push things. You REALLY want to focus on healing before focusing on figuring out what your max capacity is.

It definitely doesn’t take much to fill you up after surgery. For me, eating slowly is really important because I don’t get the old cues that I used to get when I was full. So if I eat too fast now, I end up consuming a couple more bites than I should and that leads to 30 minutes of discomfort afterwards. I am learning to pick up on new cues. Now when I feel the urge to burp, or I start to hiccup, I end the meal.
