Trouble sleeping-Tummy rumbling



Recommended Posts

Help! 5 days post-op. Last night was the most terrible night by far. New pouch seemed to dislike anything I put into it, right down to plain Water and seriously rumbled the entire day and night. I'm walking, sticking with liquids even though I can add yogurt, Jello, etc. using gas-x strips, using my PPI and not doing anything I'm not supposed to do. Diarreah is a problem too. I'm definitely having one of those "what have I done" moments. Ideas/suggestions???

Yes. Take another PPI and consider switching brands. What are you on? Prevacid is notorious for not working well. I had to switch a couple of times before I found one that worked well for me.

Also, sleeping with your head slightly elevated helps a lot of people, and remember not to eat within the hour before going to bed.

Liquids in = liquids out, so that will improve as your diet changes.

I hope you get some relief!

Thanks. I was started on Prilosec. I see the doctor on Monday so maybe I need to discuss making a change.

That's what works best for more people. It may be that you need more time, it may also be that you're one of the unlucky ones that needs a prescription strength medicine. Good luck on Monday - and congrats on that new sleeve, by the way!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
