TinMAN wrote he could feel when food he ate "plopped" in his stomach and I finally felt it yesterday after I ate a hotdog on bun---1st one in years--- and it "plopped" into my stomach and I felt instantly FULL.

by karen 5 on 03-28-2015 at 02:58 PM
IT HAS NOT BEEN TOO BAD!!. head hunger alive and well sorry to say but first day was worst. clears for a while makes broth and jello feel like a full meal. i have been good with no cheating even though others eating in front of me. as long as I have protein shake available I can do it---the protein seems to kill the hunger pains for a few hours. surgery is 4/2 at depaul in st louis. looking forward to post op on this journey.
