A 8oz protien shake is on average 100 calores. A Slimfast is around 190....an insure is like 250 I believe. If I could not eat I would substitute with meal shakes to get in my nutrition.

Unfortunately not everyone can tolerate those. I actually know more people who cannot tolerate any of those meal replacement/protein drinks than those that can.

I know some people believe a person should just suck them down whether they want to or not but when they make you even more nauseous or actually vomit, its just not worth it.

Everyones body will react differently to the sleeve, just like some people have acid reflux afterwards and some don't. The only time I dealt with it pre-op was in my twins pregnancy, now since being sleeved I am forced to take medication at least once a day, sometimes up to 3 times a day.

I am nauseous just about every morning, especially right after I eat/drink my first Protein Breakfast, and force in Vitamins. I feel major restriction in the morning, but just plain sick half the time so it doesn't even matter that I have restriction because I don't feel like having anything anyways. I take a PPI every morning, but maybe I will switch to taking it before bed each night like other suggested and see if that helps.

It's worth a try to see if it works. Try taking your Vitamins at night too. That seems to work best for me.

I am 6 weeks post op and have been nauseous for 4 weeks. I didn't want to eat or drink anything so I wasn't getting in my Water. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said our bodies are trying to get rid of years of built up toxins - this makes us nauseous and not drinking my water was just compounding the problem. He said I need to make sure to get my water in to flush out the toxins and I would start to feel better. Makes sense.

My doc prescribed my PPI twice a day. One in the morning and one before bed. For the most part I do okay, but there are times I still feel yucky. Hope this helps...:)

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
