Weird post surgery things



Recommended Posts

Never thought I would be the type of person to crave lunch meat in the middle of the night... but I suppose my body is telling me something.

Yeah, probably" Let's go make a snack" at least it isn't a big chunk of chocolate layer 🎂.

Yeah... I started eating Nuts like it was the Zombie Apocalypse and I'd never see them again 😓. I *forced* myself to slow down but it was a problem for a while...

I like this thread !

Thank goodness you're craving lunch meat and not cake. 🙂 I received some bad news yesterday and started to comfort myself by eating a donut, but I took one bite and didn't like it, so I'm really glad I didn't follow through with the bad habit of using food and I'm glad I didn't like the taste anymore.

I'm craving either plain ol chocolate or salty pretzels. Nuts help with the pretzel craving but haven't figured out how to deal with the chocolate craving yet!

Could you stir a pinch of cocoa and some stevia into some yogurt?, the vanilla usually enhances the chocolate, taste. That's the first thing that comes to mind, I think maybe Hershey might make a sugar-free Syrup, I know Smuckers makes a diet version of their caramel ice cream topping, so why wouldn't a big place like Hershey/Reese Cups do the same?

Hershey's does make a sugar-free Syrup and it's only 5 calories per TBSP. I keep it in my house to help get me through those chocolate cravings. Not going to lie...I have gotten a tablespoon and squirted the syrup into that and just eaten it out of the measuring spoon. The chocolate struggle is real.

I still just want a freaking SALAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crunchy, savory, yummy salad!

Other than a tootsie pop at a basketball game, I have not had a sweet since prior to pre-op diet. Oddly, I crave salty/spicy almost entirely. Tried to eat pho....epic fail. couldn't get much at all down the hatch!

I have been craving salad also. I went out out with a few friends yesterday and one ordered this salad that looked amazing! I was actually jealous of her salad. I am way too nervous to try any though.

Yeah, this time it wasn't a "You need comfort yourself" craving. My body woke up with a mission was like "You need to eat some meat now!"

I find that Hershey's sugar free syrup tastes terrible. Ive tried making hot chocolate with it but am disappointed everytime :(

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
