Hungry after BPD-DS



Recommended Posts

@TeRo Everyone is different. I do know a few people who were starving, postop. At 4 days out, I realize you're limited in what you can eat. If you're on pureed foods, I'd puree chicken, tuna, etc. Protein is OK.

I’m 5 months post op and I wasn’t hungry at all the first few months. I would contact your dr/nutritionist if you feel something is out of the ordinary.

Wow I thought I was the only one ! I am hungry at 6 days post op and I had the modified duodenal switch known as SIPS on 8/24/2020. I wake up with hunger feelings so bad that it cramps my sides sometimes. It is weird. Being that the modification is fairly new I pray that our surgeons can have legitimate answers. Best wishes 💕

KrissyNY, I am scheduled to have the SIPS procedure mid-September and was hoping I could get some feedback from you. I’m so terrified of the side effects ( Long lasting terrible gas and diarrhea) have you experienced these side effects? How was the pain after surgery? Are you glad you had the procedure?

@sunseeker I had the traditional DS 15+ years ago, which if anything, is sometimes reputed to give more gas and diarrhea than the SIPS procedure. It's controllable by what you eat and when. For instance, I don't eat simple carbs like bread or Cereal during the day bc I don't want the gas at work. I eat them at home. Same with ice cream or chocolate.

For a snack or perhaps lunch, I'll eat a triple cheeseburger or two from McDonald's but I won't eat the bun. Mainly bc it's too filling and I need the Protein first but also bc I don't want gas or stool issues. What happens is you learn what you can eat and what will cause problems and you adjust when you eat what accordingly.

I also carry a small vial of this for when I go to the bathroom. It works wonders.

And I carry a small vial of perfume in the rear pocket of my slacks in case I do have a bit of gas. I just spray the bottom of my pants to ensure no smell remains.

@sunseeker I am 4 weeks out from the sadi-s surgery, and I haven't had any terrible troubles with gas, pain, etc. I'd say the biggest challenges so far are mostly mental ones...adjusting to a new routine and trying not to waste food.
