  1. Hey all, was hoping for some help as my bariatric team hasn’t been much help. I’m 5 weeks PO and have constant nausea, vomiting, dizziness, cramping in my belly. I’m getting in about 10oz of fluids and about 2oz of soft foods a day. I’m constantly sick to my stomach regardless of what I put in it. I take Prilosec 40mg in the morning and Pepcid 40mg at night with nausea medicine throughout the day. I’m not able to take any vitamins as I get super sick and I’m feeling run down, weak, fatigue and starting to get cramps, numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. I don't have any leaks, I had a KUB study that said it’s from acid reflux which must surgeon says is normal and to just keep trying to intake more. Mind you I have, I’ve been trying to get them to help me with no luck, I’ve had to go to ER twice for fluids and I’m just in need of advice, opinions or even ideas on how to fight this feeling. Any and all advice is appreciated.
  2. Thank you, it’s definitely so hard and frustrating. I see my PCP tomorrow and my surgeon again on 10/1 so I’m hoping that we can find a better plan. I’ll try opening the Prilosec capsule and taking it that way to see if it helps better.
  3. Hi I'm here for my mother and I too have the questions on what meds she is able to get off of. with the research I've done its an almost 100% guarantee that its possible that he can get off his meds some people get a lower dosage or within the week can be off completely, every case is different but I would say his chances are high

She has already started her liquid diet and has 11 days left till her surgery date. I am looking for any good tips of hacks, but definitely advise. I want to do everything possible to make it easier on her, she has MANY health issues besides not being able to keep weight off. I would love if there is any information that's good to know, or if there's anything that she should know but might not. Thanks
