Everytime I get hungry just the thought of the soft food that I'm suppose to eat makes me want to vomit. I get up go to the fridge and sit back down because I can't stomach anything. I'm currently forcing a Protein Shake down my throat because I feel so sick and weak. I feel like I'm constantly car sick. I have no energy to get up and do house work. I'm in a lost... Is anyone else struggling this bad? I'm still drinking Water all day but I can't eat... I hate food.

Get in touch with your surgeon to make sure everything is ok. Nausea isn’t uncommon & many are prescribed anti nausea meds to begin. Plus your tummy can be pretty sensitive for a while as it’s healing. And Multi Vitamins can make you nauseous & because you’re not able to eat much there wouldn’t be much in your tummy to help soften the effects of the Vitamins. This all improves but it can be frustrating & demoralising.

Once you’re able to eat more you’ll feel a lot better too with more energy.

All the best.

They call it "food avoidance" - I call it "feeling like I have to yak all day." Go up to the search function here on the boards, and type in nausea. You will find my posts (and plenty of others) about it. I am 5 months PO, and on anti-nausea meds. Ask your doc for some.

What about Soups? I am in week 5 post-op and STILL resort to soups when I am not "feeling" other foods I'm allowed. A hot Soup just seems to go down easier. If you can pack it with Protein, even better! Beats a shake (at least for me)

I can't stomach Soup at all I've been having trouble with everything lately. It's worrying because I feel faintish. I'm going to speak to my Dr and see what I can do.

I'm on day nine and I feel like crap physically. I think it's because I'm afraid to try creamed Soups and possibly experiencing malnutrition? I'm going to try to make myself eat an oz or two and see how that helps. Do you not have nausea medicine? I am sooo thankful my surgeon sent me home with them. They have been a lifesaver! Especially after 24 hours of dry heaving on my first day home. I take one at the slightest bit of feeling of nausea.

I hope you feel better soon and are able to find some comfort!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
