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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
