    Kidnurs reacted to deneen in Nausea   
    Feb 5th was my surgery date. Does anyone nausea often ? No vomiting but just waves of nausea just whenever. It feels like the dragging pregnancy nausea (women ). I’m not pregnant for those who may wonder. Lol. It’s such an annoying feeling. What’s crazy is it just happens whenever. Any info or tips ?

    The same thing is happening to me as well. In fact, it's the stomach and not the pouch that likes to talk. That and the intestines say hi even more often than my lonely stomach. Ive never been so consious of where my stomach and internal organs are in all my life.
    In August I get back to my work as a teacher and hope it has calmed down by then. Otherwise I have to tell my students that it's my tummy rumbling and asking for food.

    Susie, I'm over 3 months and get the rumbling with yogurt (although I live off yogurt) and also get the hiccups. They are both annoying and embarrassing. Glad it see it passes!

    I am 5 weeks out from gastric sleeve, and the same thing happens to me as soon as I start to eat, Soup, yogurt etc. along with the burping. Glad to hear it is normal and that i am not the only one.

    I am 2 and a half months post gastric bypass surgery and it seems like my stomach is rumbling and growling and gurgling constantly to the point that I am really becoming self conscious about it. It is sooooo loud and embarrassing! It doesn’t hurt and I am not hungry but it does it anyway. I just wanted to see if anyone else has this issue and if it will be like this forever or maybe tone down a little. On the up side....I feel great!!!!!

    Yes! I am exactly 10 weeks post gastric bypass, and have the same problem!! I'm still on Protein Shakes (complications) and it doesn't rumble and gurgle on the shakes, but if I eat any real food the crazy noises start. Very embarrassing! I hope we ger some advice, because I don't know what to do about it!!

    My doc says 20 to 25 NET carbs per day max.with our small stomachs and if were eating our Protein first this is absolutely doable. I'm able to stay within range pretty easily following the plan

    Same surgery date! I agree with the poster above that talked about carb sensitivity. At 3 weeks out I had lost about 25 pounds from the day of surgery (I started at 370). At that time I was also progressed to soft foods, not mushies but actual food. I started adding small amounts of mashed potatoes with my salmon or chicken and even about 10 cheez its per day (horrible decision I know. I was quickly greeted with the dreaded stall and then a relatively big gain of 5 pounds. I didn’t immediately realize it was the carbs and assumed it was a lack of Water intake and simply a “to be expected” stall. After chatting with my nutritionist and doing a bit of research on here, I can say that I cannot handle carbs at this stage of my process. Mind you, I was still eating no more than 800 calories per day with the additional carbs. My safe zone seems to be keeping my carbs below 20g and my calories between 600-800. I have now seen my first loss on the scale after almost 10 days. I do plan to incorporate more carbs when I begin working out in one week.

    As you can tell, all plans look different. Can you call your dietician and get clarification? Ask for calorie range, carb, Protein and fats goals. When you log your food in baraitastic or myfitnesspal it will go by grams of carbs per day.

    I don't know for sure the correct number of carbs, I'm guessing it's a percentage of your overall calories. But I do know that if I eat ANY carbs, I immediately gain weight. It's frustrating! I'm researching now about something called "carb sensitivity." I had a taco yesterday, probably 150 calories or less, not sure how many carbs, with an overall calorie count for the day of 750, but the scale went up 1.5 pounds this morning. Stupid carbs!

    At one month out of surgery you should concentrate on your Protein intake and Water hydration. Bariatric plate consists of 50% protein, 25% carbs and 25% fat. It means if you use 60g protein daily then your carbs should be about 30g and 30g fat.

    OK, I was craving bariatric-friendly Mexican food this week and couldn't find a recipe that grabbed me, so I made this one up. Obviously, you can vary the seasoning/spiciness to taste. This isn't too spicy because I can't handle that right now. Hope you enjoy it!

    It was about a month before i started to get full relief. Maybe if you noticed it was related to when you increased to soft food try going back a stage for a couple of days and see if that help.

    Could be extra stitching put in there for re- enforcement. if it is, it will release at the time you're healed enough, not every surgeon does do that, but many do. Say it helps prevent any internal herniation!

    I had extreme pain that felt like a really bad side stitch for about a month to a month and a half after surgery. I don't know if that's what you're experiencing, but the pain does get better I just had to be gentle with myself. If yours feels like it's getting worse or you notice any redness or swelling around your incisions, call your surgeon's office. Best wishes on healing!

    I too have no hunger. What a feeling!!! Surgery was 3/11 and other than day one in the hospital I haven’t had any issues with any of the soft foods I’ve tried so far. However, I did have one issue when on puréed...my friend made an entire meal for us to help out. It was pork chops. I put 1.5 ounces in the processor with broth to make it smooth. Must not have been soft enough because half way through I got a tightness in the center of my chest that radiated across both breasts. I went for a walk and it passed in about 10-15 minutes. That episode was it. So you are not alone...everyone is experiencing this a little different. Keep up the good work!!
