Is there something wrong?



Recommended Posts

I am currently on my third week (yes, the dreaded stall stage) however, my main concern is that I have a large appetite. When I eat, I do get full after about three or four bites of a meal, but I am able to down an entire pudding cup, and am able to drink easily. My question is this: what was your calorie count within your first month post op? And did anyone else experience having an active appetite. My sister also had vsg done, and she said she was nauseous all the time...I hardly ever feel nauseous at all. Please help.

I didn’t have a calorie limit bc I wasn’t expected to eat/drink that much. They mainly want to make sure youre getting your 60-80g of Protein. So try not to have such a high calorie diet but Plan your meals and/or drinks around your protein. When I was at your stage I think I was 500 cals or less. Can’t be too sure. I had foamies ALOT and still kind of do if I over do it or eat too fast. Post op 2/21/19. Right now I’m only able to get in 700-900 calories. Not feeling nauseous is good. I was nauseated the first 1-4 days bc of the anesthesia, but havent been nauseous since.

I don't think most surgeons give people calorie limits the first few weeks or months because we're eating so little that there's no way we can get too many calories as long as we're following our plans. That said - follow your plan. You're not going to feel much - if any - restriction for things like pudding because it goes right through you - so make sure you're measuring it to make sure you're not eating too much of it.

Thanks so much! I just feel normal most of the time, and I get to a point where I second guess whether or not I'm doing this properly or not. I suppose I'm just stressing myself out...especially when dealing with this stall

I had to work to get 70protien. I mostly focused on that. Looking back in my records my calories ranged from 400 to 550. I too was able to eat a quarter cup of mushy food easily. And liquids weren't a problem. My first 2 weeks I felt hungry, alot. But then it went away. Havent felt hungry since. My surgery was June 5th.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
