Loss of Appetite

I was wondering if any other princess was experiencing a loss of appetite. I was always a big eater and enjoyed a variety of foods. Now I don't feel like eatting anything--nothing sounds good.

I had my surgery on 2/12/02. I feel good but tired. My husband has tried to feed me all kinds of food, but nothing tastes good nor can I eat very much. I haven't lost weight because I drink a lot of water. I have to force myself to eat.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does it go away?

Thanks for all of your support.

Loss of Appetite

Hi Vickidones!

I have also experienced the loss of appetite since my surgery. I had a tvh/bso on 11/19/01 and still feel the way you do. Sometimes I feel hungry but food just doesn't sound good. I don't know if you are on any hrt or not, but I am. I don't really think that makes any difference or not with the loss of appetite. I do take vitamins daily and I do think that does help. I'm not complaining since I have lost some weight. I think maybe just the surgery alone has an impact on our diets. Sorry but don't have anything else to say, but know what you are going through.

Good luck.

Loss of Appetite

Hi Vickie,

I do know that my own appetite has gone down the tubes. Like you nothing tastes good or appeals to me.

My surgery was on 1/17/02 and so far I've lost 15 pounds. I'm not complaing though I needed a just start to loose some pounds. But what a way to do it! LOL!!

I realize it's very hard to eat when nothing appeals to you, but please try to eat little bits several times a day to keep your strength up! Your body needs "fuel" to heal.

Very good that you are drinking plenty of fluids hydration is a good thing!

Hopefully food will appeal to you soon.

Hugs,

Laurie

Loss of Appetite

Boy, I thought it was just me. I had a TAH/RSO on 2/11 and my appetite has decreased also. I too could stand to loose some weight so I'm not really complaining, but if I try to eat the portions that I ate before the surgery I get very nauseated. So I've decided to take it as an indication from my body that any weight loss would be beneficial. The scale says I've lost 7 pounds since I returned from the castle a week ago. Thankfully my bladder and bowels have returned to normal.

Wishing all well, and remember to get plenty of rest.

Loss of Appetite

Wow, lost of appetite! Count me in! Actually, I also started to eat more when I first found out I needed the surgery. Food has always been the first place I head to when stressed and wanting some comfort NOW. But after the first 2-3 days, I decided I wanted to be healthier when I go in (I have a 5 week wait). I figure the less bulk I have to turn over, the better.
I've been eating more nutritious meals and exercising more. Plus, I want to impress the Dr. when I go in for my pre-op visit with the pounds I've lost. Now he won't think there are 2 people on the scale!
I was wondering if doing ab crunches these next few weeks will help? Will it make my recovery any easier?
Thanks.

Yes, I am on HRT. Are you on the patches? How much weight have you lost?

Just a few days after surgery, I gained weight but felt it was water. Now I'm back where I was before surgery. I do take vitamins.

Thanks for the input. I guess it's just something I have to live with.

You are one day ahead of me--my surgery was 2/12. I'm sure at this rate, I'll be losing weight also. My bladder and bowels are pretty normal too, just have bladder spasms occasionally.

I'm getting plenty of rest--sleeping much more than I ever have. I'm anxious to get through the next week so I can begin to do something physical like plant flowers or drive. I'm off pain meds but still taking Motrin.

Well, I hope my appetite returns soon, I really miss it.

Okay, since I see all these princesses with loss of appetite means I will be looking for the Grand Buffet table. If there is a side effect that I want, you can be sure I won't get that one.
I can always hope

You may be surprised--I always looked forward to each meal and a variety of foods. The only food I've really craved lately is a taco. Weird but true!! Tomorrow night I'm going to cook tacos and get my fill.

Good luck on your surgery. It'll be over before you know it and you'll feel much better.
