I'm 3 week out regretful



Recommended Posts

I was at the bmi 33 before i decided to have this surgery and now i regret it every single day, I'm always hungry but can barely eat or enjoy my meals. It sucks! I just wish i could turn back time and never have had this surgery. It gets easier with time i know as many have said that to me but why do i feel i rushed into it without really thinking.

Sent from my VOG-L29 using BariatricPal mobile app

You haven't filled in your profile which would help people respond to you properly, what would be helpful is the type of surgery you had.

Anyway, sometimes excess stomach acid can feel like being hungry, are you on something to help reduce stomach acid? My surgeon had me on something for a month after surgery for this.

What food stage are you at on your program? What are you eating and in what volume?

Are you drinking enough fluids?

Remember at this stage it is typical for a lot of people to barely eat, their stomach is healing, there is inflammation and the stomach is likely still swollen. They get by with fluids - like Protein or Meal Replacement shakes, high protein milk etc. If on the pureed stage foods like high protein yoghurt can help (and what ever else is on your program no doubt).

Having weight loss surgery is a huge change to your life. And for some, even though they thought they were ready & understood the changes that would occur, the reality of life after surgery is a shock. This is where you are now.

Yes, it does get better. You’ll get used to & accept the changes to how you eat, how much you eat & what you eat. Everything is strange & confusing at the moment especially in the first few months. Give yourself time to come to terms with everything.

Things won’t be exactly the same as they were but if they were you’d be exactly where you were before surgery. You’ll have ups & downs on the way but remember why you wanted to have the surgery in the first place. It is a journey: a lot of learning, self reflection & discovering what works for you. Look at the wins as you see the scale go down, your clothes becoming looser & improvements in your general health.

What you’re likely experiencing now is not real hunger but head hunger or emotional hunger or even just feeling hungry out of habit. Remember most of the area that produces the hunger hormone has been removed.

You can do this.

Oh that's such a shame. How long has it been? A few weeks? A few months? Browse through the forums and you'll see info from people at every stage of the process and maybe you'll find something that will help you with your WLS journey. Take care.
