Hi! I’m 3 weeks post surgery and I am hungry all the time. Is this normal? Am I really hungry or is my mind just thinking I’m hungry? Please help! I’m so worried that I’m doing something wrong

It’s normal. It gets better as your diet progresses out to real food. Hang in there.

I’m just like you. I’m 3 weeks out and hungry all the time. I feel like I need real food, not Soups and purées. Yet anything I eat, I can only get a few bites down before I’m full then I’m hungry again an hour later. And I’m craving things too. I thought I wouldn’t have to battle these daemons after the surgery, yet I still want to eat. Good thing I can’t.

I’ve kind of moved passed the puréed foods an on to soft foods because I feel like I need solids. I’m a bit lost as to what to eat. I’m having things like soft scrambled eggs and cottage cheese. And lots of soups.

Im only down 10 lbs since my surgery so that has me a little concerned too. However I’m averaging 600 calories a day. Doc says that’s about right for this time after surgery.

Anyway, you’re not alone I too expected to have no appetite at this time, and more weight loss too.

I felt the same way at first. It got so bad that I would leave my house and get myself stuck in traffic so that I wouldn't be able to eat😄 It'll end don't worry 😄

I did not expedite my timeline afraid I would tear or hurt myself as my surgeon explained how important it was to stick to the timeline for foods. I found and still find mixing a Protein Shake with ice, my collagen, and Peanut Butter powder. It really helps. Sometimes you are thirsty and it feels as hunger. I had pains below my stomach that it felt empty all the time. So the triple zero yogurt I had all the time as well as the smoothie out of the ice and shakes really helped. It does get better. Hang in there, best of luck to you all.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
