I am 23 days post op and on soft foods now per my doc. Ever since surgery, when I eat, my stomach never feels settled or “normal”. I wouldn’t say I’m nauseous, but it’s close to it. I can only eat very little. A few ounces at most so I’m not over eating. I’m waiting 30-1 hour before drinking fluids again. I thought eating soft foods might make my stomach feel “normal” again but it hasn’t. Is this just because my stomach is still healing you think? I force myself to eat because I know I need to, but my stomach feels the same before I eat and after I eat. It’s hard to explain. I can only say that it does not feel like a normal stomach feels if that makes sense🤣 Most people say they feel “normal” after 2-3 weeks. I always feel sickly, but not to the point of throw up. Any advice or similar experiences are greatly appreciated. I see my doc for follow up on Wednesday. Also, I am a revision patient. Lap Band to Sleeve.

Sounds pretty close to my experience as well. There is a new normal now :) The old normal led to obesity so you want to leave that behind.

At about 3 weeks I missed just chewing food too and even if I could not eat/drink more it didn’t click in my brain that I was full. My mind was still demanding full plates of foods.

Every time I introduced a new food was an adventure too...sometimes it just didn’t stay down, but most of the time it would just make my stomach sort of quiver and feel uneasy.

Go slow and embrace the change—there are new cues/signals to learn. Initially you have to consciously remind yourself to eat because your body’s hormonal signals are disrupted. Look for the new signals and practice mindful eating to learn the new feelings/signals and proper portioning.

I’m nearly a year out and had brown rice tonight... I’m not exactly sick but I don’t feel “well”. My stomach is talking to me and it is like I can feel it move through me. Breads/pasta will do the same thing so I avoid them.

So I found that full feels way different with my new tummy.
With the band you knew when you couldnt eat anymore.
But with my loop ds I really have to be careful.
