21/2 months out and some complications



Recommended Posts

So I am about 3 months out from surgery and just started to have a few complications. About 2 weeks ago I have been having trouble eating solid foods, I have pain ,my stomach hurts, and I immediately feel nauseous and sometimes vomit. I cannot eat scrambled eggs at all, they make me soo sick. I also just found out from the doctor that I am still very anemic so I have to start taking Iron supplements. That explains why I have been so tired lately.I am just concerned about the solid foods, Is something wrong?? Should I just go back to liquids for a while and then slowly advance again? Im not sure what to do or if I am not doing something right. I am very happy with my sleeve, I have lost close to 50 lbs and feel amazing besides eating solid foods. thanks everyone

I'm over 2 years out and still can't comfortably eat scrambled eggs so I can't help you with that one.

Are you still on a PPI/acid reducer? If not you could be experiencing swelling, and irritation from acid. If you're on a PPI, you might to try a different regimen.

My main recommendation is to get to your doc, and find out if they can do a scope.

I had a case of severe gastritis that caused pain when eating. It resolved when I was switched from Prilosec to Nexium.

Also, pain with eating solid foods happened when I started having gallbladder problems.

I'm just throwing out some ideas for you and what I've experienced.

As for liquids, see if you can just go back to mushy/super soft solids, and cut fat and any extra sauces/condiments for a few days to see if this helps. Try a bland diet, and maybe some Probiotics.

The Tender Iron from Vitalady.com is awesome!

Thanks so much for your input! I am def calling the doctor tomorrow and I have not been taking prilosec anymore. Maybe I should again??? And I will check out that website for an Iron supplement, that was next on my list.

I'm over 2 years out, and still take Nexium. I probably won't go off of it anytime soon. I know a lot of people can and do wean off of it successfully, but I've had reflux in the pregnancy, and I have zero desire to ever feel that way if I can prevent it.

      I have been waiting over a month to get into the nutritionist. I have an appointment, but I would love any advice on what to do diet-wise to lose weight before surgery. Like most of you, I have also struggled with my weight and have successfully yo-yo dieted myself into the above 300lb range. I feel like eating in a calorie deficit at my weight, it should come off, but it hasn't been and I have been tracking my food too.  Thank you

        Hi, Mindy G, I am new here too, my surgery will not be until July or August, but I could use a friend. I see yours is coming up soon. Are you doing the liquid diet before surgery? How's it going?

        I would take any advice on what to do for weight loss before the surgery, I have my first nutritionist appointment on Feb 9th (the soonest I could get in). But I was 12 lbs heavier than what my doctor submitted as my weight to my insurance, so I have to lose that plus at least 10 more pounds and I am struggling.

      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
