cckcsharp Posted September 17, 2008 Report Share Posted September 17, 2008 Okay, I have 3 days until I am done with post op and can eat regular food again. But honestly I can't imagine eating solid foods because I have restriction already. I get that full feeling on a pretty small amount of soup or pudding. I thought these things went right through the band? I have heard of people describe bandster hell saying they can eat anything and everything they want, but I already know that I cannot. If I feel full on soup, I would think a few bites of solid foods will really make me full. Am I just feeling restriction because I am still healing. I am just wondering if others felt restriction during those 3 weeks of post op and if it just suddenly goes away and that's when the bandster hell starts. I have heard people say that they are starving during this time. I am not. I drink a protein drink in the morning and then eat either soup or pudding in the afternoon. That's it, except for water or diluted juice and occassional fudgecicle. And I don't feel deprived or hungry. My calorie intake is about 600 calories per day and I can't imagine eating more at this point. By the way, I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks, so I don't know what I have lost during post op yet and therefore have not updated my signature. It started my period during this time and figured that would affect the scale so I just have chosen not to weigh again until that's done and post op is over.
