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.
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!!
thankyou for your replies it has put my mind at rest a little but i am still having difficulty with food. had a banana and breakfast cereal with soya milk today but feel sick again. stopped the pain meds 3 days ago to see if that helped but has made no difference. is there any medication that can help as im starting to get desperate
