I started getting hungry the day after surgery. I wasn't one of the lucky ones who didn't get hungry for a few days. I don't get hungry very often though, thank god, and it doesn't take a lot to make the pangs subside. And let me tell you, the hunger pangs I get are intense, they're almost painful, and come on super fast! I am hoping that once I'm on solids again, the hunger pangs will be normal again(still on liquid diet, start pureed stage next week).
