Not feeling full

Recommended Posts

I am only taking in 1/2 a Protein Shake and Soup twice a day. Sometimes I feel full other times I don’t. Does anyone else feel like this? I put Protein in my soup or some juice to make sure I get my protein in for the day.

That's all you eat? 1/2 a Protein Shake and Soup twice a day? That's not much at all. When I was a month out, like you are, I was drinking 2 shakes a day and eating some pureed foods.

It has taken me awhile to learn my new stomach. I don’t ever feel full the way I used to like typical full feeling after say a holiday meal. I have all new triggers that let me know it’s time to stop and I’ve learned (the hard way 🤢) not to take one more bite. My head will still eye the food on my plate and want to finish it. For me I’ve had to realize satisfied is my new full

I look at the commercials on tv and think boy that would taste so good. My dr has everyone go in phase 1 is Clear Liquids for 2 weeks, phase 2 is Protein Drinks and creamed Soups for 5 weeks, phase 3 is full liquid which means I can have Everything in phase 2 plus cream of wheat yogurt and pudding for 1 week. Phase 4 is puréed foods for 1 week. Phase 5 is introducing food back into my diet. I almost crave just chewing the food.

I feel full really easily, so I'm still getting 600-800 calories a day with Protein Shakes and some cheese and deli ham.

      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
