I had a similar problem. I had a staple come loose and got stuck right above my pouch which caused me to have an ulcer. I had no appetite and could only hold maybe 2 oz at a time. After I got that fixed I feel so much better.

I too am almost 7 weeks post op and I do get hungry, but nothing like hunger before surgery. My problem is I have zero restriction and never get a full sensation. I feel exactly the same after my meals as I did before I eat. I wait an hour before and after eating to drink. I get about 100 oz Water in a day. I’m hoping down the road I get some sort of fullness feeling after eating. I always feel empty.
