Gsv yesterday..hungry today!



Recommended Posts

So I had my gastric sleeve done yesterday morning all went well I feel well I'm going home in about a half an hour but I got to tell you I'm hungry. Is this normal? I was kind of afraid of this. Although I have to remember that when I do start eating in a month or so I don't know how long it takes it will be very little and I won't be able to eat as much. Anybody else hungry after their operation?

Yes, but not till the 4th day and I was starving. I drank broth and it helped tremendously. For some reason it goes down real easy for me. Hopefully you don't have to wait a long time to do Protein Shakes. That should help stave of hunger. I had to wait 1 week and it was so very hard. Good luck!

Ha ha ha. Dont worry plenty of people will be on here soon to tell you that you arent really hungry it is all in your head. It is just head hunger, feel free to tell those people to f**k off. I was starving the morning after surgery. Once you are able to take in puree and soft foods you should start to feel better.

I'm only 4 days in...Surgery on the 9th. I've felt hungry a little but most of the time I haven't. Stay hydrated. That helps.

Yeah I think you're absolutely right it's not head Hunger if I think back to the last time I ate anything even a Protein Shake it was 3 days ! of course I was hungry. Thank you for the validation. I hope it gets better when I get on the pureed as well. Then I got to think well I can be hungry all I want I still can only take a limited amount in.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
