Stomach Growling!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I was sleeved 4.29.19, everything seems to be going normally, except IM SO HUNGRY! My stomach growls when I wake up, and growls thru out the day! Im not having the weird stomach noises Ive heard people talking about, its growling and im hungry. That empty hollow hungry feeling. Did this happen to anyone else? On the r/wls subreddit someone suggested it was acid reflux, but it doesnt feel like that, and I take 2 pepcids a day, and I dont eat anything to trigger that. IDK, just thought Id throw that out there.

Im getting 700-1000 cals a day, 70-100 Protein a day, keeping carbs under 50, drinking Water.

I’m having same issue as well. I’m disappointed that I’m not one of those people that don’t have any hunger urges post surgery. I have to say that it is a little better since my diet progressed and I can have some real food. However it is hard during the day to not count minutes until I can eat again. Once is time to eat it is hard to stop at quarter cup and to chew to apple sauce consistency every bite. I’m using meditation and trying to focus on breathing. This helps my mind to refocus away from food. I’m optimistic that will get better as we are healing and progress on diet. Also I suggest meeting with your therapist about this as it is head hunger and the therapist may help you find peace with your hunger feelings and give you some tools to cope with it. You are not alone.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
