Fullness sleeve vs. roux en y



Recommended Posts

Guest

I do not feel nearly as full as I thought I would, even with soft or non-liquid foods.

That said, I'm reading quite a bit that sleeve patients seem to have the "full" sensation more than roux en y patients.

Jealous. I've found the way to combat this is to measure my food, because I don't have that solid "full" feeling even with the chewing, Water restrictions, and slow eating. I assume this is because it's getting pushed out quickly.

Legit? Do you sleeve patients find you feel fuller, quicker, in comparison to bypass patients?

I've had both a sleeve and now a bypass. I am struggling with not overeating because there is no full feeling with my RNY. With my sleeve it was very clear when I should stop eating, but not with RNY. I am back to measuring portions.

I had the sleeve 9 years ago and now have to have the bypass due to GERD, hiatal hernia, esophogitis, and Cameron lesions. I have weight that I gained and need to lose and now I’m worried about not feeling full after the bypass.

I think it's probably an individual thing. I didn't feel "full" at first, but I did once I started eating solid foods. I would always recommend measuring what you're supposed to eat and only eating that regardless, because sometimes full signals are different post-surgery and it takes awhile to recognize them, and also by the time some of us feel "full", we've overdone it.

I agree with catwoman7....i believe it’s based on each individual person...I didn’t have fullness until I started solid foods...I’m only 3 months post op RNY but I can eat 3-4 bites and feel full....the full feeling goes away pretty quickly....But that’s why eating high Protein meals 4-5 times a day is important.

@Keatsy

When was your surgery?

I had the sleeve. It took time to figure out my sensation of full. I don't think my experience was much different than any other types of surgery. I still have times of hunger and cravings. I had to find ways to manage them and lose weight.

Thanks for all your responses. I had surgery on July 28th, so almost a month. I'm doing fairly well (knock on wood) at this point, but I do find measuring works better for me than relying on my body.
