Has anyone else felt very nauseous 4 weeks out? I haven't been able to eat anything for a week i feel like I'm going to vomit when I drink Water. I have tried 5 diff nausea pills and also had a EKG done and everything looks fine the only thing I have done for two weeks is lay on the couch I'm so regretting this surgery

YES! I felt so nauseous for so long. I have a few issues with my sleeve but my nausea turned out to be because I had increased swelling in my sleeve. They find in some people that for no known reason they just swell up more and it makes us nauseous. It alleviates between the 6 and 7th week from what my surgeons said. And that is what happened for me. Personally I would request a scope just to make sure there are no other issues so you don't end up in the hospital like I did.

I did regret the surgery too, now I am so glad I did it and would do it again.

I did have the scoop yesterday and dr said my tummy looks good. I am so sick of this. When did you start eating I just can't do it. I have ice cream that I try and eat because I can't think about eating anything without running to the bathroom. I'm so ready to get this life started but I swear I'm never going to feel better.

Yesssss, I so hated my sleeve for the first 3 - 4 months. . . wished everyday I hadn't done it. . . but now being almost 2 years out it's the best thing I ever did. . . as far as the nausea, try drinking warm tea, less cold Water, broth, etc. . . sometimes our delicate tummies can't handle that cold liquid after surgery. Also, you might want to get suppository phenergen, this works very well for me. . . Good luck! Hope it works. . .

DOnt eat any milk products. that can cause gas and nausea! I have found that the more activity I get the better my nausea is.

and plain Water makes me GAG so I add SPecial K2O to my Water. better flavor and I get more Protein too!

try chicken broth. popcicles, Soups (again NO milk). it is not unusual for us to try and eat more then we are ready for and get sick!!! only ONE bite at a time. SIP all liquids. I have also found that if I eat more then ONE bite I throw up! I hope this helps!

I understand your frustration! I am at 17 days and I was soooo looking forward to mushies but each time I eat I get so nauseated! Doc prescribed me generic Zofran. I also started taking Prilosec. I do not regret the sleeve I am just tired of feeling like I want to get sick each time I eat or drink. Plus run off to the bathroom. I have to be careful cuz I travel for work so I am not exactly a happy camper right now. I just hope it ends soon.

I tried and tried to eat and couldn't do it, the swelling got so bad that I could not physically get anything done. Even during my hospital stay for 12 days I could not even drink Water, they had to put a PICC line in, it was right around the 7 week mark that I was finally able to get mushy food in and they discharged me. the nausea stuck around for a week or so but I have been fine since then.

I've found that sugar free popsicles are a lifesaver for me when I feel nauseous.

I was told by my dr to stop taking the acid reducer not sure why she said to do that because she said I had alot of bio in there when she did the scoop. So teas I've never had tea it never did sound good to me but im willing to try it what are some that are good for the stomach problems also would sprite be a bad idea this early? I'm not sure I can handle broth, sugar free anything or Soups anymore I've had to gag them down and now thinking about it totally makes me sick. Thanks for all the replies I've really needed this help.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
