I am only 5 days post op and I am feeling so hungry. Is this normal? I am getting my 64oz of fluids in but having to make dinner for my daughter is making me hungry. Can anyone help me? This Liguria thing is killing me.

You've got this [emoji3531] it's super hard those first two weeks on liquids, I also felt ravenous and wanted to eat everything (or so my brain told me), any food commercial made my mouth Water and cooking for my son also was tough. At one point (don't judge please lol) I even chewed a cheese puff and spit it out [emoji23] one of my favorite things during liquid phase was Tomato Soup with unflavored Protein Powder. I'm sorry I'm not more help, just know that when you get to the pureed stage you will definitely feel more satisfied and full. [emoji3531]

In the same boat. My husband cooks for the kids and I have to see/smell macaroni, pizza, Pasta, and Cereal. I have chewed a few items and later spit. I'm also a good week away from pureed foods. You can do this!

Same boat. I was hungry days 1-3 and I didn't have to watch anyone eat (so sorry). I started eating Soup and Jello because I couldn't take it. My husband has accidentally brought home food that smelled delicious. We have a deal that if he's going to do that I'm either going for a walk or he eats it before coming in the house until my stomach controls my mind a little less. Thankfully it's getting easier. I went to a family BBQ and I brought refried Beans to eat while they ate everything I really wanted *sigh*. All I can say is you can do it, just find solutions that work for you. It's a terrible mental and psychological game for the first few weeks. Good luck.

I feel super hungry too, which I didn't expect because the surgeon told me that they were removing the portion of my stomach that made me feel hungry. One of the main reasons I had surgery was so I wouldn't feel hungry all the time. Why is my stomach still growling?

I'm 4 days post and dealing with the same struggles. I have 8 more days on a liquid diet before I can move to soft foods. I'm so discouraged and seriously trying not to get super emotional about it. I really hope this next week moves quickly. I don't know how to manage this feeling.

Are you taking any stomach acid reducing medication? Excess stomach acid (for the amount of food/drink currently being consumed) can feel sometimes feel like hunger.

I'm on Omeprazole and still feeling this "hunger" constantly.

I read this on another board and it's odd? But egg drop Soup minus the eggy parts has been recommended a lot for people who are like us. It is a little bit more substantial than broth and I was really so hungry so I gave it a try and it does make me feel fuller than broth. I know I can't eat it every day for the next week but just not feeling hungry for a few hours gave me the boost I needed to keep on keeping on. Just a (weird) suggestion!
