Surgery is almost 6 months out



Recommended Posts

Per my insurance, my surgery will most likely be in January 2023. I’m having to learn a lot and learn to Portion Control everything! I’m having moments of sadness at foods I may never enjoy again. Will the “hunger” feeling go a way even just a little bit?

My nutritionist recommended this site. This is my first post so please go easy on me😁

congratulations! yes the hunger will go away. Are you having the sleeve or bypass? I had the bypass on November, and my hunger shut down for 2 weeks. Now i feel "hungry" but not like before, and a Protein Shake shuts it down. Its all mental and it is easy as you progress, good luck!!!

Congrats to you upcoming surgery and to the beginning of your journey. You will be able to live a relatively normal life eating wise, enjoying your food, but usually after all the phases and yes, the majority of WLS do experience a big appetite reduction.

You will still be able to enjoy food you like but in moderation! Some foods you won't be able to tolerate and it'll make you sick. Post surgery I was in phase 3 of my diet which was soft foods. I scarfed down a soft hard boiled egg and my stomach did not like it! I have not liked any type of boiled eggs till this day.

I had the sleeve in 2018. My stomach will feel full but my mind will tell me I am still hungry. The pain from overeating is definitely unbearable and super uncomfortable. It is truly a mind game. If you have a really good nutrition team you will do awesome!
