Terrified I’m going to stretch my pouch



Recommended Posts

I am 5 weeks out, and I know that if I don't stop eating the second I feel full, I feel it, and regret it! Eat slowly, chew until it is almost liquified, and keep your portions under 4 oz. You will do great.

And even we RnY have that worry, that something could happen, especially those that have pouchs that don't complain and take what you put in gratefully. Ms Precious Pouch, maybe she has my personality, I get crabby too at times, but she is still winning the food battles, but I am learning and maybe not the end of the war, but if I follow her lead we do have a truce.

A lot of people have that fear, but it's not very likely to actually stretch. You will lose some restriction as time goes, but that's just how this surgery works. To stretch your pouch, you would have to overeat pretty regularly.

That's a common fear many of us have, I think. But at one week post-op, I was still on a full-liquid diet. There's not a lot of restriction with liquids, so it's easy to feel like you're "eating" more than you should be able to, if that makes sense.
