Sounds like you are eating too much or too quickly. Try measuring your food and do not put more than half a cup on your plate. That should be mostly Protein and some veggies. When eating use the 20,20,20 rule. Chew 20 times, wait 20 seconds between bites and anything that is left after 20 mins push away.

Oh and no drinking while eating, ever. Always wait at least half an hour after eating before drinking anything.

I hope this helps. Vomiting is like a near death experience to me so I try to avoid it at all costs!

I have no idea if vomiting can cause leaks if that what you meant. I would say that at 4 months out you should be ok but that should not be the only reason you try to avoid vomiting. Vomiting means you are doing something wrong and you can't continue to live like that.

If you have spoke to your doctor and can't get any help from them I recommend contacting a nutritionist to review your diet. Possibly the foods you are eating is causing your problem. If not, possibly you are not chewing as well are you think resulting in your problem. Regardless, you need to see professional guidance from someone who can help you. Throwing up four months post-op is NOT good. I am also a little over four months post-op. When I hear I eat Protein, vegetable then fruit. Uusally Protein and fruit in the AM, protein and fruit for lunch then protein and vegetable for dinner.

Whatever you do you need to consult a nutritionist to ensure you are eating the correct foods. Oh yea, remember, LEAN, very LEAN is a necessity. Fat in your meat can also cause you problems.

Good luck to you!

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
