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!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
