I’m one week out from sleeve and I’m incredibly hangry. I’m on smooth liquids for another week and am constantly hungry. Anyone else have this problem? To add a little background, I was never hungry pre-op. I ate terribly but was never hungry. I’d go all day without eating anything at all. It’s a strange feeling to be hungry now (constantly). ❤️

That sounds terrible. I am pre-op and I used to be hungry all the time until I started eating high Protein in preparation for surgery. I'm still hungry in the middle of the day a lot, and it sucks. Can you have Protein Shakes and Bone Broth? Maybe it's head hunger, too, like you are used to eating stuff you can't have now? Maybe you can take a nap to at least pass the time?

Did you get an antacid prescription with your surgery? I never had stomach acid issues pre-surgery, so I didn't bother taking it. Then someone advised me that stomach acid can mimic hunger and that did the trick. I also got Soups from Panera (Summer Corn Chowder, YUM) and strained them. Thich enough to feel more like food...probably not a lot of Protein though!

Wow, that's a drag. I'm just the opposite. I'm on day 8 of pre-op and have nearly no hunger. I do pump a lot of Water through me though because I learned sometimes when I feel hungry I'm actually thirsty. My only issue, and it's minor is that I am having trouble sleeping at night. I understand it isn't uncommon with Keto and high Protein diets, but I wish I could get a really restful night in. All the best!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
