How's everyone doing???
That rumbly hungry feeling is actually a form of acid reflux that is very common after this surgery. You should ask your doctor for an H2 blocker or PPI (proton pump inhibitor) to help with that reflux if it gets worse. And most likely it will. It will give you a sense of false hunger pangs. It is not like the reflux you would feel prior to surgery so it confuses a lot of people. I was the same way, up and walking a lot. The damn IV stand I had to drag down the hall was so annoying. LOL. And since my hospital floor was not only WLS patients I am sure that they were so annoyed with hearing it. Hell I was and I was attached to it! I did not have much pain either. I went back to work exactly a week after surgery and I was fine but I have a desk job. It gets easier and easier. I did eat creamed soups made with skim milk during my liquids only phase (2 weeks post op) because my body was craving savory not sweet. So I had those and broth and at least 1 shake a day. When you go to solids it is a game changer because you can literally eat only 2 bites. Do it slowly. Because if you do it quickly you will take 3 or 4 and then realize once it is too late that you overdid it. And it does not feel good. You will feel sick and uncomfortable. Luckily I did not get sick but a lot of people do. So glad to hear your recovery is going so well!!
Best of luck with your surgery today!
