    Hi guys I’m 2 weeks post op today. I am on the pureed diet now. My problem is even on the liquid diet I would only have one liquid meal a day tops two when I was told I should be eating six small meals a day. I drink an awful lot of cranberry juice and cordials. But I just can’t seem to eat more than one or two meals daily. I don’t have a problem with eating it’s just I feel full constantly and have no interest. Has anyone else experienced this? I also have zero energy this is obviously because I haven’t been eating enough. So is it normal to not be able to eat right now and does it get easier? And any ideas on how to increase my energy levels?
    Thanks,
    Lily x 🙂

    Hi Lily

    When I first came home from hospital I was unable to even sip for a couple of days but I did sip as much as I could as I know it is important to take in fluid. I’m now 4 weeks post-op and I was the same as you 2 weeks ago. As the swelling decreases each week you will find that your appetite will increase. I’m now eating mashed food and I look forward to my meals as I now get hungry. Like you I didn’t have much energy but you should find that when you eat more your energy levels will also increase. I have become a big fan of drinking coffee made from skimmed milk, I have a cup each evening. It goes down very easily and it’s a good source of calcium. Hang in there Lily, it does get easier. We just have to be patient patients and take things slowly. Best of luck with your recovery and your weight loss. Love Gill x
