I'm new to this forum. I'm 3 weeks post op gastric sleeve with Blossom Bariatrics (Dr. Umbach) and have lost 27 pounds so far. My day before surgery weight was 215. I feel I'm doing well, but am still bothered by nausea. Is this normal?

I struggled with nausea weeks 3 and 4. I had run out of my prescription strength liquid antacid and tried an over the counter liquid antacid (Galviscon). It didn't work. The nausea stopped when I switched to Prilosec 2X per day (morning and night) in pill form. I hadn't tried the pill before because I was worried about swallowing one but I finally got desperate enough to try and it worked.
I think nausea is fairly common. Your stomach is healing and has a huge incision, if your dr. didn't give you a scrip for Prilosec or another PPI, call and ask. If you are already on a PPI, mention the nausea to your dr., he may give you something else.
Thanks so much. I'm also trying to drink more water as I've heard that may be a cause. And I agree that Dr. Umbach and his staff are terrific. I will contact them if it continues. Did you have him as a surgeon too? And congratulations on your weight loss!
