  1. I had gastric sleeve on nov 23/2020 and my legs have been numb and hurting for like 3 weeks, and my balance is so off it made me fall two times today. I did go and see my surgeon this week and he gave me a lot of vitamins and it’s kinda working but my legs still hurt when I walk for like 10 or 20 minutes and plus during those minutes I might fall or one of my legs will just give up and make me trip.

    GERD with Sleeve

    I Had my sleeve surgery on nov 23 2020 and I have GERD. my doctor doesn’t understand what I’m going through. He only told me to take gaviscon which didn’t help at all because every time I take it I throw it up in like half an hour. the reason why he doesn’t understand me it’s because I’m only 17 and he thinks I’m overreacting. It’s been 2 months now and my GERD is not getting any better. i throw up almost anything I eat or drink everyday. I used to be on Nexium 40 2x a day but it turns out I’m allergic to one of the ingredients. I really need help because it came to the point where I literally fast everyday.

    Can I eat raw fruits?

    Great to see a fellow middle eastern in this website! also I will try some kiwis and see if I can tolerate them like you did.

    Can I eat raw fruits?

    I had gastric sleeve surgery, and yes I am allowed to have normal foods again but I was just wondering if I can eat raw fruits again since I’ve been only drinking fruit smoothies. They didn’t give me a food plan for normal foods.
  6. I’m 1 month and a half post-op and I was wondering if I can eat raw fruits like strawberries and pineapple?
  7. Update. I may have developed acid reflux. I went to my surgeon two days ago and he didn’t understand me. he said “it’s okay it happens to everyone”. I went home and I was so sad because I had horrible nausea that didn’t want to go away. I was unable to drink or eat. yesterday was even more horrible I cried from the pain I was going through. everytime I try to swallow any medicine I was given I start to have nausea and just vomit spit because at this point my stomach was just empty. I woke up today with a sore throat. Took my nausea medicine and I’m currently trying to finish a container of Greek yogurt. I’m supposed to start my solid foods stage next week and I’m currently on soft foods stage and the only soft thing I ate was freaking scrambled eggs and that’s all. my mom at this point doesn’t understand me. she had gastric bypass 7 years ago and told me that it happened to her and I have to stop complaining about it.
  8. hello. Unfortunately it’s been so hard for me. yesterday I woke up with something annoying in my throat it made me feel sick. I went to the hospital and they told me that there’s nothing wrong with me and I may have slept on my neck in a weird position. today I woke up with the same annoying lump in my throat but it’s worst. I gave up on trying to know what it is. couldn’t drink enough water because it was annoying me when I swallow anything. I went to the mall today with my mom and almost passed out in the store because I didn’t eat anything because of the annoying lump in my throat. went to a nearby cafe and ate two bites of something I wasn’t allowed to eat during the soft foods stage that I’m currently on. It made me feel a little better, then I asked for green tea and waited 25 minuets so I can drink it and thank god I felt so much better. Afterwards I finally found something I can eat and it was mushroom soup. I drinked 8 spoons of mushroom soup and felt good for an hour and a half and when I went home everything was horrible. I almost passed out again but thankfully I layed on my bed as soon as possible, and now I’ve been lying on my bed for an hour and almost a half and I’m currently rethinking my life choices. maybe this surgery wasn’t for me at all.
  9. Thank you for helping me, and yes I think its because of me not eating enough food and also because of dehydration. I will try my best to keep hydrated and try and eat enough food in one day. I will keep you updated 😊💛
  10. Thank you so much for helping me, and yes I haven’t tried protein powder but I will try to buy some and see if I can tolerate it. 10 minutes ago my mom forced me to eat a small banana and thank goodness I felt so much better after eating it 😊, again thank you for helping me!
  11. Hi I’m Jori and I’m only 17 years old. I had my gastric sleeve surgery on nov 23 this year and on December 23 I complete 1 month after my surgery. my problem is that I can’t eat 3 meals in one day and I can’t drink 48oz of Water in a day. I get dizzy each time I get out of bed or when I normally get up from my couch and I hate it. I only drink 990 ml of water a day and the only thing I eat is fat free Greek yogurt in a day just one box. my weight before the surgery was 115kgs and now it’s 99kgs. My mother told me it’s crazy how I lost 16kgs in one month and told me that I have to lose weight slower, I do go for walks 4 times a week and when I rest my body hurts me and I feel really sick out of nowhere. I told my mom to schedule my first appointment with my Nut and I’m so scared of what she’s going to say to me. I just know that she’s going to be disappointed in me because the way I’m treating myself, and yes I know what I’m doing is wrong but I really need help from you guys to tell me what to do and what not to do.
