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.

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.

First I am wondering after reading these post why you are all vomiting and it sounds like some of you are vomiting quite often. I have vomited only once and that was because I thought that I could eat the rest of a meal that I had put on a plate instead of stopping when my stomach said "ENOUGH". I have not done that again as I do not like to vomit. I did a lot of vomiting with my lapband and that is one of the reasons that I had it removed and had the sleeve. I think that if you are vomiting weekly then you need to examine what you are eating and your eating habits. I know after reading posts on other topics I see people pusing the envelope and eating foods that I think are way too early for the amount of time that they are post op. That is just me but I stick to the diet plan that my surgeon gave me after surgery. There are things on that which it says that I can eat that I have some trouble with so why push my luck with things that are listed for me to eat further out.
I guess that each person is different but I think that if you are vomiting on a weekly basis or more then you have a problem.
