Hello I'm 4 weeks post op and starving today! I havent felt hunger since the surgery and just wanted to make sure this is normal. Super silly maybe but it scares me because I dont want to pick back up bad habits.

I will be 4 weeks postop tomorrow, I'm hungry too! I went to Walmart Grocery store today and finding Protein rich foods without it becoming monotonous is a real task. I found some egg bites premade with cheese and Turkey sausage, I don't eat pork, but they had bacon as well. I found a large container of Oikos Yogurt which is 12 grams of protein per serving, egg whites, cream of wheat, oatmeal, Sargento cheese Snacks, milk for Protein Drink mixes and few other items for my family. I miss having ftuit, vegetables, salads, fish because my body is rejecting my favorite protein.

I'm also feeling tired of sweet liquids, not being able to drink plain old fashioned Water without an enhancement to tolerate it, I want cold Cereal, I want cashews and pistachios for a healthy protein boost. I miss some of my favorite healthy staples that would satiate my hunger, but Ariel aka my stomach is still healing and I have to respect it. I'm hungry too.

I'm drinking Water and ignoring this loud growling that "Ariel " is doing at 3:30 in the darn morning. Insomnia is real and on my nerves.

I almost went to get some cheese, another Jello or something. I opted for Some water. I hope to be sleep soon.

Definitely a pain at that stage, Try using these little broths right before bed - It worked for me and i would leave it on the nightstand if it acted up would take a sip or two

I almost don’t want to comment on this for fear I’ll eff it up or unleash the beast. I’m no longer feeling hunger. I’m 4 weeks post op today. I have to force myself to eat. When I do feel that tiny bit of hunger creeping on I drink with of my Protein Shakes and stave it off for another few hours.

@Krimsonbutterflies what are you doing up at 3 am sister?? Insomnia is a real thing tho. So I get it! I take Trazodone which is something my psychiatrist prescribed me when I told her I wasn’t sleeping well. I haven’t had an issue since and it’s not interfering with any of my other medications and helps me sleep.
