  1. Hello if anyone is reading this I need to know if I'm dumping or having food poisoning and what to do? Around 11 am today I had some salmon from a restaurant by 12:30 I was running to the restroom vomiting and having diarrhea. I have been having horrible abdominal cramps and with nausea, also sweating. Somebody please let me know what this is and what to do! Thanks in advance

    Need some help!!!

    I know I love salmon and when I make it at home it settles well. Today the only difference was it was made somewhere else

    No this is not the first time having salmon. I don't know if it was from the restaurant I had it from that it wasn't prepared correctly. I usually prepare it at home and was fine. It was salmon with black beans and a little corn.

    Hello, so today my paperwork was sent to insurance!! Yay!![emoji4] I do have some questions for people with the same insurance: How long was your wait for approval? Did you have any problems? Also I have met my deductible and I'm in TX, does anyone know how much the cost of surgery was? If you have any more information to share please do. [emoji4] [emoji5]
  6. I am about to be one month post op and just started sleeping on my sides, stomach, etc.. but now I cannot sleep anymore. Before when I was sleeping on my back, I hated it but I would stay asleep. Now I am tossing and turning all night...anyone recommend anything?
  7. Okay, so I've been craving a pumpkin spice latte, or decaffeinated coffee in general. Of course I haven't gone to Starbucks, because everything is too sugary for my taste buds. So how did you all make a pumpkin spice, or order it? ☺

    Regular Food recipes

    Thank you so much, looks like I have a few new things I need to put back into my life (such as rotisserie chicken) I completely forgot about it.

    Left-sided abdominal pain

    I am about one month post op and I just recently got over this pain. I had this pain near my largest incision site and my Doctor told me that it is called "transfer pain". He did an xray in his clinic and let me see my stomach, everything was fine. My doctor told me just to put a warm compress or a heating pad to break up the inflammation on inside. When I finally did that I started getting a burning feeling which means your nerves are trying to get back together, it was so uncomfortable!! But about 5 days later, all pain is gone. Now just soreness. Good luck and it will get better
  13. So wow has this surgery been a big change! I finally talk to my doctor about the pain on my left side near my largest incision, he said it is normal and should happen. Now I am experiencing a stinging pain in my lower belly around the big incision, it happens if I sit or bend down. Does anyone know what this means? Or had this happened to them?
  14. Hi all, I felt alot better yesterday, I've been concentrating on getting my liquids in. The only thing is the nausea, and the pain I have is not on my incision where I had my drain but on the side of it, near my hip and stomach. I called the doctors office this morning because I felt so good and now again I feel sick. I just don't think this is normal. Right now I am having to put a little bit of crystal light in my water to help me get it down. Other than that, thank you all for all the encouragement. It helps
  15. So I am a little more than 2 weeks post op on pureed food phase and today I just don't feel good. I had my drain removed a week postop and I've been feeling pain on that side. If I sit too long it hurts, and it's uncomfortable. Yesterday I tried pureed chicken again, and my pouch was not happy. I am not throwing up, but just gagging over the toilet while nothing comes out (TMI). I was nauseous again this morning and now a little better. I have been sipping on some crystal light. I just feel right now so horrible. I am overwhelmed with emotions, and with this pain on my side and I feel like it's neverending. Please pass some words of encouragement, thank you.
  16. So I was wondering if anyone missed a period or had any changes after surgery? I know I am not pregnant lol. So I'm about 2 weeks postop and I was suppose to start 3 days ago but nothing. Just wanted to know if anyone had this problem?
  17. Hello, what protein powder do you all add to your food or drinks? Please share below ????
  18. Thank you all for all the advice and encouragement. I am going to try to not have so much Gatorade because I know of how much sugar there is. I am going to try warm water and see how my pouch takes it. Right now cold water won't help. I am worrying more about my liquids than protein, and just sipping every so often.
  19. I am having a harder time with liquids, I am trying Gatorade and crystal light to meet my requirement because it's hard for me to get just water in. I did puree the chicken with a little low fat mayo but I think my pouch wasn't having it. I am concentrating so hard on protein intake that I don't think I am concentrating enough on liquids.
