I am wondering if anyone else ever had to have a tube through your nose because you were dehydrated or not able to eat? I had to have one placed on tuesday because in was so dehydrated and couldnt keep anything down and was just vomitting for 2 weeks. I'm feeling so much better but my dr won't take the tube out until I can eat 800 to 900 calories on my own. Now my problem with eating food is I'm sure I can because I want to eat for the first time in so long but this tube down my throat makes me gag as it is I'm scared to eat food with it in. I don't want to lie and say I can eat and then not tolerate food once I have the tube out and have them put it right back in. Has anyone else had to go through this or maybe have some advice I'm really stuck. I didn't mention that I have been eating popcyicles without problems.

you poor thing! i hope it gets better for you! im sorry i have not had one so i dont know what you are going through. i would suggest that you tell your doctor that you have a hungry feeling again, and that you feel like gagging when you try to eat because of the ng tube.

i hope you are able to have this problem resolved soon. just remember that it will get better and this wont last forever.

its sometimes hard to picture a way out when you are in the momment of recovery.

I'm feeling Alot better, better then i have since I started my pre op diet and am actually glad they decided to do the tube. I did eat and have been eating all weekend. I hardly know the tube is there anymore. I'm going to talk to the dr office tomorrow and see if they will let me try eating on my own without the tube.

      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
