Not weird at all. I didn't feel hunger until my 3-4th week or so. I'd go into Mom's kitchen right after she baked a cake & yes, it smelled delish - but I wasn't interested in or wished for it either! That sure made things easier!

Im 2 weeks out as well and occasionally get a slight hunger feeling but it never lasts long. pizza sounds amazing but the calories etc do not lol that was one of my favorite foods! But I'm sure once we're able to have normal food again, there's a healthier way to make your own pizza 🤩

One of my surgeon's patients lost her mind (his words) & scarfed down TWO SLICES of pizzas less than 2 weeks after her surgery! She ended up in the ER. As far as I know, she's OK, but learned a painful lesson!

Ahhh why?! I'm terrified to even take a bigger gulp of Water than I was told to in fear something will happen 😲 bless her heart. I love pizza but I'm not willing to burst because of food. My surgery was painful as is and left me terrified to end up in the hospital again.. no thanks !

I wouldn’t bless her heart. That was plain stupid & sabotaging surgery. Why go thru this & not follow plan. Hope she learned lesson or she is doomed for failure and/or do real damage to herself. And I’m 2 months out & my nutritionist says I can try cauliflower crusted vegetable pizza. And I’m nervous to do that!

I'm from the south lol so when we say "bless your/her heart" means they were not so smart and made a dumb decision so I hope she learned. My friend said she had a friend that decided to have chili after surgery and it busted his stomach and he had to have surgery again .. ugh Cauliflower pizza is actually really good! I've had it and I like it .

I’m a northerner so gotcha! I’ve had chili several times with no issue. But not until at least 5-6 weeks after surgery. I’m very careful what I eat- how I eat & when I eat. I’m real fearful of getting sick.

Crystal, I had my surgery done Wednesday and I am having some tenderness and I think it’s because I’m scared to move to much. I definitely don’t want to wind up in the hospital again that was awful!!! We are basically a week apart! I’m craving food and I have thought several times what the hell did I do?? What food are you on now?? I cannot stomach the shakes. Let’s do this together!!!!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
