  1. Sleeve surgery on Jan 8...got covid the next week.  I’ve lost about 35 lbs very steadily, but I’m still so nauseated.   Has anyone else experienced the long term nausea?  I don’t know if it’s the sleeve or covid...my covid symptoms were mostly gastric issues.

    any info on eating salads...is it a possibility anytime soon?

      I had surgery on 4 January so only a few days before you. I started on salads this past weekend, just tiny amounts of lettuce and cucumber, chewed well. I had a small mouthful of coleslaw which didn't sit too well, I think it was the raw carrot.

      I was very lucky, no nausea and vomiting at all.

      Do you still see a dietician? My one told me that most people give up on the dietician straight after surgery but I still see her every 4-6 weeks as I go through the different stages. Just a thought, it might help you work on the nausea. It must feel awful 😞 ginger and mint are natural anti emetics (nausea), perhaps try some sugar free mints to suck on, or some sugar free gingerale?
