Starving or stomach acid causing issues?

If you are feeling genuine hunger once are onto solid foods this will help reduce the feeling as the solid food will cause more restriction (and it will tell the brain you have had sufficient calories).

I actually envy you. I am 9 weeks postop and I yet to have develop an appetite. Nothing looks good, smells good or tastes good. I am forcing myself to eat every day and I barely get 2 ounces in. I so wish I had an appetite.

Heyyy!

I'm about 23 days out from surgery. I had VSG too...one thing I wanted to say was to be sure you're not feeling gas. For me, hunger pangs AND gas pains were the same feeling lol...weird right? But for me mashed potatoes helped a lot, that ricotta bake recipe is pretty good too & made me feel like i was actually eating! Things will be better soon! I had a really hard time my first week or so due to my emotions being CRAZY and me not being able to wrap my head around that I physically cannot eat the foods I've always loved.

Have you tried Protein Soups? How about protein hot chocolate? I find that warm liquids go down a little more easily than cold. I got some protein hot chocolate from the BariatricPal Store that is really good. It tastes like normal hot chocolate, no weird protein taste.

After liquid, my next stage was soft foods. I started that today and feel thankful to eat

I’m the same way I’m on purées food but I’m not eating really although I’m starving. I had my sleeve 7/14 I’m losing very slow. I have trouble getting my Protein and my liquids and I barely have energy! I wanna eat too that’s the worst of it

Hi,
I had my surgery on the 14th as well. I cant really stomach anything either. I haven't gotten in my liquids or Proteins on any day. I can't do Protein Shakes or anything artificially sweetened. I finally went to the hospital tonight and got an IV. They took xrays and said everything looked fine. I'm just hoping this feeling stops soon.
