A week post op ~ feeling so hungry

Recommended Posts

Hi there,
I am wondering anyone's experiences with being really hungry post op?
I am just over a week post op and have just started purees but starting to get really hungry. 
I don't think I had any fluid in the band and it's like 5 weeks until he will put fluid in.

Should I be concerned that I am so hungry?

I know nothing about lap bands and it's been a real whirlwhind of a couple of weeks as my neurosurgeon needed me to lose weight for surgery so it all happened really quickly.

I'm one of the lucky ones whose hungry was broken for a couple of months after surgery. I know that's not the case for everyone though.

Make sure you have protein with every single meal. Try to also include good fats and fibre.

This is a video I made with some meal ideas for the post op stages:

Make sure you're drinking enough water as that helps keep the hunger pangs at bay.  Also try Optifast shakes as they really do make you feel quite full.
