No appetite five days PO

Anyone else have no appetite? It could be because im still pretty constipated but I just never feel like eating lately. I stopped the pain meds after day 2 and all I’m now is my antibiotic which I’ll be done with after tomorrow. Not sure why there would be a correlation between BA and appetite??

  • I would guess it’s the constipation since it can be causing the feeling of fullness. Try to eat some healthy snacks in the meantime but pretty sure your appetite will return

  • I was the same way. I stopped pain meds Day 2 and was constipated with no appetite. Even after a few days of going to the bathroom regularly I still wasn’t hungry. My appetite didn’t really come back til like 10 days post op and even then it wasn’t as much as it was before. I’m only 19 days PO now and back to normal eating wise but mainly because I’ve been forcing myself to eat even if I’m not totally hungry. I also worked out 5-6 times per week before surgery so not burning all those extra calories is probably contributing a little bit. But it’s totally normal what you’re feeling!
