You aren't going to feel like you're starving after you have surgery. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and I'm still in the thin liquids phase, and I haven't felt hungry or had any headaches. You have to be super vigilant about drinking enough liquids to not get dehydrated though, or you will feel awful. You will absolutely get tired - you're having surgery and it takes a lot of energy for your body to heal itself. But you have to be very commited to this. After surgery, if you eat some solid food when you're supposed to be on liquids, you could rupture your stomach which would put you back in the hospital for weeks (and could even kill you). Seriously, I have an axquaintance who ruptured her stomach TWICE because she's a compulsive eater who didn't get that issue under control before she had the procedure. It wasn't pretty, and you do NOT want that to happen to you. So if you feel like you might not be able to stick to the doctor's plan, don't do the surgery until you're sure. But if you think you can, stick it out for a few more days and it will get much easier to stick to those liquids after the operation!
