vomiting question



Recommended Posts

I've had an upset stomach all day and finally got some relief when I vomited. I've had my band for over a year... and I know that vomiting is not something they really want us to do....so I wanted to ask you veterans if you think I should go back to liquids for a couple days... I am scheduled to see my ,"band" Dr on Wednesday. (Sorry to be so graphic ...but thought I could ask my friends)

Vomiting once probably is ok. Continues vomiting I would say call your doctor for some anti nausea medicine. If you are struggling with solid food the yes go to mushy or liquids. Your band will let you know if it is irritated....

But I am not a medical professional, this is just my thought. Best advise is always to call your doctor.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking but needed some reassurance that I was doing the right thing.

Really depends for me; depending on what got me stuck I do have to go back to at least soft foods for a day or two because I guess my stomach get irritated easily. If I keep trying to eat those foods I continue to get stuck and then I really CAN'T do anything but liquids...

I really wasn't stuck...it was grease in the food that upset my stomach and after several hours of pain and nausea I vomited. I went back to soft foods and felt so much better.

If I happen to get sick from eating too much or if I just have a bug, I usually take it easy and eat mushy foods for a couple of days. Seems to help.

I've had food poisoning or a stomach flu 2 x since being banded. I had to stay on saltines for a day or 2 and then ease back into it. Feel better!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
