OK, my gastric bypass surgery is not working the way I had planned. I physically feel hungry all the time. I'm 7 wks out almost and should not be feeling hungry. i'm drinking my water and eating my portions as prescribed. But, an hour or less afterwards, I'm hungry again. My doctor said it is too much acid but we have tried all the meds for that and still hungry.
my next step is to have an endoscopy which i'm trying to arrange now. i have a feeling that something inside is not working right and that he may have to go back in and redo some things. not a pleasant thought but will do it if i have to i suppose. the only problem is that i was a cash pay and insurance did not cover it so i'm in debt for the first surgery. i can't afford another one. oh well, one day at a time, right?
Thanks everyone for your suggestions and comments. I really appreciate it.
I'm eating low carb with low fat protein and no fruits. i am eating very simply because i do not want to stir things up. I think stress causes some of it but there's nothing i can do about that. i will find out on Friday because i have an endoscopy scheduled. Maybe then we will find out what is going on in there. At least we will be moving forward.
