    Gastric bypass

    I'm hoping someone can help me out with some suggestions please. I had a gastric bypass 14 weeks ago which didn't go to plan and I had to have emergency surgery to repair my insides. I was left with a drain in for 6 week, which left me having to take antibiotics because it was leaking infection. Once the drain was removed I thought great I can start my new life. Unfortunately it hasn't turned out that way, as soon as I start to eat I feel sick, I go through the motions but nothing comes out this lasts between 5 minutes and 5 hours, I have even got anti sickness tablets which haven't helped I feel and look like an old woman even though I'm only 52 because of this. I hate looking in the mirror because a gray faced woman looks back, I feel weary and very ill because of it. It doesn't matter what I eat because I get the same reaction every time. I've been so poorly my mum has stayed with me for 12 weeks. I haven't had any follow up letters from my surgeon yet so I don't know who to talk to because my own doctor isn't clued up on it so doesn't know what to advise. Thank you to anyone that reads this post and I hope someone can give me some advice on what to do next. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my message, it's the first time I've ever asked for help but I'm so glad I did because I don't feel so alone now.

    Gastric bypass

    Thank you so much for your suggestions I am going to try going back and starting again. I rang my nurse again today and left another message if I have no joy from her I'm going to see my GP. I'm so glad you managed to get sorted out, fingers crossed it will work for me. I will update you in a few weeks.
