LOL. I feel ya! Even though I did the 6 month diet before surgery, and mentally and physically prepared, I still had cravings. I really want some homemade biscuits and Tomato gravy! Lol. They'll get less once you start soft foods. My doctor let me start 4 days early. I'm having deli turkey slices and small pieces of cheese. Two at a time and I'm full. Lol. And once I was approved to move to some diet ocean spray juice, I felt better also. Im a Water lover but I just needed something else.

Hi everyone! Still feeling great. But I’m feeling like I have such horrible cravings for real food. Like I just want some Peanut Butter, or a chicken breast. Even a whole wheat quesadilla. Is this normal??

Yeah I wonder if they’ll let me move to full liquid diet and then purée a lot faster since I am having zero issues getting liquids down.

You never know. I know every doc is different. I had two friends who had the same surgery as me at two different hospitals with two other different doctors two days after me. And one was able to have oatmeal on post op day 4! I don't think I'd try it but still. Lol. And the other friend has a diet that is by days not weeks like mine.

I am about 20 hours post op, still in hospital. Having relatively easy time as well. Only one half dose of narcotic last night but otherwise just having liquid Tylenol. I am not sleeping much, partially because my heart rate is weirdly low (45-55) and the alarm keeps going off so I move around to keep it above 50.

I feel like I can totally relate in a way. My surgery date was 4/19. I did have pain at the hospital but it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, it hurt less when I first started walking. Honesty, I mostly just felt tired haha I actually haven't had to take any of my nausea medication through my recovery, I haven't felt any nausea. In fact, im only in my second week and im already having more energy. I did feel more proud the next couple of days after surgery especially when I tried to get out of bed, my fiance had to help me. That was really painful, I had to take pain meds for about a few days but it was mostly gas pains as well. However, after four days, I have been fine! The walking really does help :) and I just believe that my recovery has been a lot of smoother than I imagine it to be.

It’s not a dream. I felt similar afterwards. Felt guilty because someone in recovery next to me was In a great deal of pain but other than what felt like I did about 5,000 crunches I had no pain. I was worried about going home the next day and not having the hospital bed rails to pull myself up but I figured out how to do it. Just keep your fluids up and you should do great. Congratulations on your surgery.
