Anyone Feel Sick After a Fill?



Recommended Posts

Hey all, it may be coincidental, but I woke up today not feeling well. Yesterday was my first fill.

I'm feeling a little dizzy and nauseous, stomach is bothering me, headachy and my bowels are a little loose (sorry)

ANyone else? Could be my CFS or Fibromyalgia flaring up.

Every single fill I have ever gotten effected my ears (it's all connected, ya know). At least the first few days I notice what feels like an earache/stopped up head flu-like thing. Then once the fill settles in it seems to go away. But I have never experienced any stomach flu symptoms. My sister in law got her feel last week and experienced extreme vertigo for the first few days as well.

Weird huh?

I have low blood pressure normally. I just read on here it can effect that, make it lower. I'll just take it easy.

You know, I PB'd (a pretty good one-Chex Mix) Wed evening so I did liquid Breakfast and soft foods yesterday. My calorie intake was barely over 1000, I didn't sleep well last night, and today I just feel yucky. This makes me wonder if a "sore" or whatever, band area, like what one might have after a fill, contributes to feeling bad.

I just feel like crap today. Maybe the PB isn't directly related, but I'm thinking it didn't help?

You may have something here, Leener. I don't think it's completely out of the question to be having trouble for a short time after a fill. Who knows?

I had a fill yesterday, and while I don't have the symptoms you describe, I just have a more fatigued feeling...

Having a fill reminds me that there is a foreign object in there, and that I am adjusting something in my body, so I ought to be nice to it for a while...and the liquid diet (I do 2 days) probably affects my energy level, too.

I sure hope you are feeling better real soon!

I've had 3 fills with no symptoms but many people have different experiences with the band so it doesn't surprise me that some people are negatively affected by a fill.

Since the subject is fills...anyone had trouble with cold stuff after a fill? Last night I had a little "golfball" feeling with a SF popsicle, and today with a fruit smoothie (made it myself, with a peach, yogurt, frozen banana, orange juice and 3 ice cubes). Maybe I'm drinking too fast...boy, what a difference in this fill!

3mls on top of 3.5 is quite a large fill. It appears that your feeling sick due too over restricted and dizzy due to either dehydration or lack of food intake. I would suggest you have a small aspiration.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
