Feeling hungry



Recommended Posts

I had gastric sleeve on 8/20/19. Every now and then i feel like im hungry. Or at least my brain is telling me i am. Has anyone else felt that way? Sorry i am new here. Thank you.

I had my surgery on 8/28/19. My second week I believe I was feeling hungry for a couple of days. My two daughters had surgery last year and they said I was having head hunger. Whatever.

There was one day I was ravenously hungry, like could've eaten all day. I didn't over eat and stuck to what I was allowed but that one day was tough. It's been much better recently, in fact there have been a couple days I have forgotten to eat because I'm not hungry.

It's totally head hunger. We all get it.

Are you still on omeprazole? the heartburn can mimic hunger but there is no way you are actually hungry. I had a kidney stone 3 weeks out and was having the worst stomach pains of my life.

Also, when in doubt, drink a glass of Water as quickly as you can for your particular stage of healing! :) Then wait 20 minutes. Often thirst masquerades itself as hunger.

So hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

And even now, I have hungry, hungry, heifer days. They are tough to get through, but I make sure my carbs are low, Protein adequate and that I'm staying in my caloric goal for the day and I drink lots of water, and exercise (walk) and deep breathe when those times come. It helps.

Welcome!

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
