Is it possible?

I'm not starving but I'm sure I could eat more i just dont!

I must admit I am curious if I will get sick or feel really full if I eat a bit more.

Drinking i can chugga chug!

I am going on 2 months out.

I've lost 33 lbs so losing, I'm just scared about whether I have stretched my pouch, if I even have one!

I felt that way for the first weeks too. I wasn't achieving a feeling of "full" (but my doctor also kept me on full liquids FOREVER, so kind of hard to get full on 8 ounces of almond milk and 2 scoops of Protein powder) and really wondered if he actually did my sleeve. Then I tried my first 2.5 ounces of pureed chicken salad and suddenly I could feel it. 8 weeks out now and I can comfortably eat 3.5-4 ounces of soft food, though 4 can sometimes feel like I'm pushing it.

At your next visit ask a ton of detailed questions about you new anatomy or request copies of the surgerical notes for your personal records. Or if you had to do a barium swallow test after surgery, request the report.

Good Luck ♥️

Yea - I felt that way at first, too. But once I started on solid foods, I could definitely tell!
