Extremely hungry right after VSG



Recommended Posts

Help! I am not even a week past surgery and today I started experiencing intense physical hunger. Nothing I am drinking is taking an edge off of it. I am so miserable. Please encourage me- I am just desperate.

Are you taking stomach acid reducers? It could be excess acid rather than hunger??

For me i want to eat a lot of things but even if i bought them id only b able to take a few bites then id b full. You are dealing with head hunger possibly. If you tried eating youd prob be full after a couple bites lol

I don’t want to eat any particular thing at all- I am *physically* extremely hungry. My stomach feels completely empty, I have a headache and am losing energy.

Hang in there!! Once you move on to solid food you will be full after a couple teaspoons of food, and hunger will be a thing of the past! Just gotta get through this part!

I didn't think I needed the antacids (I have never had acid reflux before) but it DID make me feel less hungry, so if you don't have them, try it!

Thank you for the encouragement! I am doing better with Protein today and feeling better and more optimistic.

I saw that somewhere too. I take omeprazole already but Mylanta or something might help. Good idea.

Have you tried some kind strained of cream Soup? That really seemed to help keep me satisfied. Good luck!!

Yes! Soups have been helpful.
