2 months after surgery still can’t eat much



Recommended Posts

My Surgery was 11/4/19. I’m still having issues with eating. I’m either not hungry or what I fix just doesn’t taste good. I feel like maybe I wait to long before I eat. I drink my Protein Drink and I’m full all day. Sometimes I eat something today I’m fine the eat the same thing tomorrow and I throw up. My surgeon says you’ll get there. Anyone else had a hard time eating 2 months after surgery???

Absolutely normal. I was only eating/drinking 500 cal/day at 2 months. You are still healing, and it is a very difficult transition time. Some days you can eat certain foods, and other days the same foods are just intolerable. Work on eating slowly, and listening to your body. You don't have to force anything at this point. Just get your Protein, fluids, and Vitamins down and you will be fine.

I'll be 10 weeks Monday and I'm still mostly on shakes. 2 or 3 a day most days :)

That's a GOOD problem to have. You don't want to be hungry, that's why you had the surgery in the first place, to get rid of your hunger hormone. Drinking Protein Shakes will work just fine. Don't rush the process. You'll be grateful later.

This is the honeymoon period where you don't have much of an appetite. Make the most of it and enjoy it while you can! My appetite is starting to come back, and I wish it wasn't!😁

I have tried to eat a few bites of tuna in the pouch. I did make some taco Soup. I ate some the first few days then I didn’t want it. Sometimes I get a little hungry. I’m still doing shakes and the sugar free popsicles. They are heaven when you can eat lol. They told me at Christmas I could eat a little to enjoy the day. I did have a little ham some Beans I did fine. I only ate a few bites. Took some home and a few days later couldn’t eat it. I saw where someone was eating hummus so I bought some to try. Believe me I’m not rushing anything. My sister had this done in 2004. She gained a little back and said she can eat what she wants just in smaller portions. She said she still can’t process any sugar. Which is a good thing.
thanks for everyone’s comments. It helps to have other people to talk to while going through the process. I started out at 302 in June 2019, surgery 11/4. Im down to 244 I’ve lost about 33 since surgery. My dr said my goal is 10 lbs a month and I’m reaching that goal. Going to sign up to go back to the gym. I can’t wait.

The nutritionist says that this surgery doesn’t get rid of hunger. It’s all in how we decide to deal with it. I get hungry but I do try and nibble on things I can try. I wanted candy the other day. I bought sugar free caramel candy. I ate one and I was completely satisfied. My sister says it all about choices and making the right ones. I’m still mostly on Protein Shakes and sugar popsicles. The shrimp last week was the best treat.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
