Re: when will i regain my appetite

Everyone is different. I was pretty hungry as of the day after surgery. But not everyone is...and pain meds may make you have less of an appetite as well. I wouldn't worry about it. Some people just take longer to get their appetites back. Just be sure to eat fat free for the next few weeks.

Re: when will i regain my appetite

It took me about 3 or 4 days before I was able to eat anything but crackers and bananas. The first day after I was horribly nauseous, so that probably played a big role in my lack of appetite. By about day 4 I was able to eat other low fat foods. I did (stupidly) test myself and ate french fries about a week later and was nauseous and had cramps and diarrhea. Be careful what you eat and stick to low fat till your body adjusts!!

Re: when will i regain my appetite

I have the same problem. I had gallbladder surgery 3 days ago and have no appetite. MY doc said this would happen, all I have eaten is crackers and liquids.

Re: when will i regain my appetite

You can ask for an anti-nausea pill. I'm a month out and still not eating but have other issues. I've lost almost 30 lbs.

The anti-nausea pills might help you.
