I felt the grinding for a about 4 days, then it slowed down to only happening when I ate something my stomach didn't like. I think by the 3rd week, it was gone completely.

I didn't take any meds once I was back home. Saying the taste made me gag is an understatement.

I had this very same thing last week. I thought I was going nuts! It felt like constant hunger pains! I am on 40 mg of omeprazole a day. I took a zantac, and I took tums, and none of it seemed to help. When I called my surgeon, his PA told me to go ahead and add refried Beans, and yogurt to my diet. (I was one week post-op) That did the trick. I think it all started after my first BM since surgery. All of the sudden it was like everything woke up, you know?

i think i started this problem a month out because i was wrongly crushing the time release omezaprole which was basically like taking almost nothing at all..and it was only 20mg to start. i am taking it whole. slept fine..stomach is ok..also forgo my one cup of very strong coffee today...not worth it even though i love it....

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
