2 weeks post op and I can eat big amount of food



Recommended Posts

Hello guys.

I had a concern regarding my sleeve. It is weird but I am 10 days post op and can eat bigger amount of food than what I see on internet. If I try it is possible and no vomiting for example I can finish 4 boiled eggs or a cup of ice cream.

Did it happen to somebody? I am a bit worried that maybe my stomach is still big.

Thanks

You should reach out to your medical team. Why would you try to eat 4 hard boiled eggs or any ice cream at all 10 days post op? You still have internal sutures you could be damaging. It's possible you have nerves that are not yet healed and thus you are not yet feeling the restriction but you should be sticking to a nutrition plan regardless. And while I know plans can vary widely from surgeon to surgeon I don't think any would recommend ice cream or 4 whole eggs at one time. You shouldn't be trying to test the limits of your stomach.

Everything that @JDLane is accurate.

Are you not working with a surgeon/team/or program?

Right after surgery some people can't feel full because of the nerves recovering from the surgery. You shouldn't have been pushing to eat 4 eggs in the first place and ice cream shouldn't even be in your diet this early out (it's not nutritious and has basically no Protein in it so it's wasted calories, carbs, and fat that you should NOT be consuming this early on). I think you need to call your surgical team to see if you unintentionally damaged your stomach pushing more food than you should have.

Just because you CAN eat something doesn't mean you SHOULD. I agree with what everyone else is saying, but you might also consider seeing a therapist if you were overeating due to binge eating especially if you have struggled with that in the past. If you were just testing out the limits of your stomach, call your surgery center, but if it was that you were craving ice cream, and felt the need to eat four eggs instead of one, think about whether therapy would be of use.

ice cream turns to liquid pretty quickly in your stomach, so it goes right through you. So I'm not surprised you can eat a cup of it. I agree with the others - why are you eating ice cream now in the first place? If you're serious about losing weight, going about it that way isn't going to work. Get a plan from your surgeon or dietititan if you don't already have one and follow it. That's the only way this is going to work. People who start pushing the envelope right away after surgery usually end up failing.

I am no expert but it would be difficult for me to go through this type of surgery to eating 4 boiled eggs and ice-cream at the point you are at currently. Maybe you should check with your doctor about what is going on.

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
