Any weird cravings once your appetite returned?

Just wondering if any of you have been having weird cravings after surgery. My appetite is just now starting to return after 2 weeks of nothing sounding good. Last night I send hubby off to the store to get raspberry sorbet and the makings for a chef salad. Weird! But so good!

Yes, the day after surgery in hospital and all I had eaten was a piece of dry toast...my DH was going to grab a bite and I asked him if he saw a tuna fish sandwich that it should have my name on it. I ate half of it.

At home, I sent him out looking for a banana cream pie.

Now it is spinach salad.....I eat it almost daily.

Not cravings, but certainly a change in eating habits.

I won't say that I have cravings, but I will tell you my diet has changed.

I am a plus size sister. I have never met a steak or potato that I didn't like. I have - without success - tried to convince my family and friends that vegetables only need to be eaten once a week!!!

Ok, so here I am 16 days post up. I don't know whether it is a fear on constipation or what, but I have had salads, vegetables and applesauce with just about every meal. My family has actually had to for groceries based on my new found love of green stuff.

I have to admit, I feel better. I have had no constipation issues. And I feel like I could get somewhat accustomed to eating this way.

Yes, I've been craving grapefruit, and it seems I always have a salty taste in my mouth, what's up with that?

I craved ice. I ate 2-4 trays a day. My Doc said it was because I had low iron. The craving is gone now. It took about 7 weeks to go away. I also craved Hall's mentholyptus(sp) cough drops. I know, very weird..lol. That craving has just about ended now too.

I had my surgery in August and I craved rainbow sherbert and of course you can rarely get a small carton of it so I bought a 5 gallon pail of it and ate it every night for about a week. Last week I threw the rest of it out!

My two days in hospital reminded me of the joy of popsicles! (I didn't know they were the special nutritious kind!)

I shopped for those regularly for several weeks, and then changed to frozen fruit bars (with Splenda and/or their own natural juice).

I too craved to eat Healthy when my appetite did come back.
