Had my gastric sleeve surgery last week on Thursday with no complications thankfully. Since day one I have been able to drink Water just fine, take pills also...well it’s been 6 days and have tried to get as close as 64 oz of water a day as I could and I’ve been drinking some broth, and some sipping on Protein Shakes per my doctor she said main focus is water not Protein but I am hungry! Is this normal? Yesterday I thought it was a mental thing but today I actually feel my empty stomach growling? Any one have any advise?

Yes Water goes thru you fast - here is a trick -

Make a broth or base, I suggest you use Bacon Base or chicken base - Sip it every hour about 5 oz and you will stop the hunger -

The base or broth has great amount of minerals also and will make you feel better - you are close to being able to add some soft things to the bases so blend and enjoy - Also add a small amount of Protein Powder

DO NOT USE STORE BOUGHT BROTH OR BASE IF YOU CAN AVOID IT, THEY ARE LOADED WITH SALT AND CHEAP ONES HAVE CHEMICALS -

It's okay to be a little hungry. Just stick with small portion sizes. Some of it could be head hunger.

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
