I'm just one person, but I threw up several times a day the first two weeks after surgery because of complications. I never had a leak, but that's not to say it never happens. I'm over 4 months out now and haven't had a leak and I've thrown up a lot.

Does it seem like you throw up harder with the sleeve? Maybe its just me but I've never thrown up that hard before.

did they prescribe an anti-nausea for you? Zofran 8mg ODT or Phenergan syrup.

Okay thank you. Did you get sore after throwing up?

Lauran, I'm not sure if you were asking me that, but I was prescribed both and neither helped. Msaprildawn, I don't think it feels like I'm throwing up harder, just a little different because I'm really trying not to throw up. I've never really thrown up a lot because of food before surgery (just from being ill or motion sick), so it was a new experience. I was only sore the first couple weeks of throwing up. It felt like I just did 1000 sit-ups. Now, it's pretty much normal.
