So, I'm 11 days post-op and I'm stuck on the liquid diet for another week. I am constantly hungry. I was told this would fade - does it ever?

Yes it definitely does. I was exactly where you are. It takes a couple more days and then you kind of won't notice it. Make sure you're getting enough Water too. I'm fairly sure the ghrelin is still running around in your system for a little while after surgery.

I'm having this problem too. I have been eating every hour or so. I have been told it will get better on solid foods. I'm 12 days post-op. It's really frustrating!

I have three weeks of post-op liquid diet and am almost two weeks through it. I'm allowed to have unflavored Greek yogurt, skyr, and sugar-free fat-free puddings on my "liquid" diet and I find those help a lot. Also, warm savory things help—phở broth, miso Soup, chicken broth. And the Fairlife nutrition shakes that taste exactly like chocolate milk seem to assuage my hunger.

It is better now than it was immediately post-op, for what it's worth.

Thanks for the heads up. :) I have been drinking a lot of Water and making sure my Protein is within optimal range. Today I'm not hungry like at all, I wonder if it was just me pmsing or something.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
