Well I ended up in the hospital today due to dehydration. I haven't been able to keep down food or Water. I will have a swallow test today and then an upper gi tomorrow. Looks like I will be here for a couple days.

Wow...that sucks. I defiantly feel your frustration. I am still in the hospital. After a ton of Iv fluids I am feeling a lot better. they did An upper gi this morning and found strictures in my pouch and esophagus so it's no wonder I have been having such a hard time swallowing even Water. The dr rigorously dilated my pouch and esophagus to get rid of the scar tissue and said I may have to have it redone in a few weeks. Had two more swallow tests and the radiation dr said my pouch looks normal now, hopefully that fixed it and I can finally eat and drink again. I just want to feel normal again. 4 weeks of barely drinking and not eating has driven me crazy. I've been so snappy at my family and friends and I do not really mean to be...but it's frustrating not being able to keep even Water down. I keep telling everyone not to take my bad mood personally...but that seems to go in one ear and right out the other, Anyways....I'm just hoping this did the trick and I can move on with my recovery! Best wishes to you!!

I can definitely relate....seriously. I want this repaired asap. They better check everything bc I'm 5 weeks post op and this is so not cool. I'm glad to hear that you are doing much better. That's awesome!

I had read somewhere that when the dialation is needed it sometimes takes 3 visits for it to stick. Mainly because your organs are elasticy so they bounce back. Thats why it takes a few times stretching it for it to take.

Good luck...I hope you both are feeling better!

Yea 3 or 4 times is what they told me yesterday but the nurse said she once saw a patient that had to have it done 8 times! They also discovered an ulcer while doing the endocopy. I have to have it repeated in 2 weeks!

In the hospital again for dehydration and to have the endoscopy dialation once again. So ready to be able to eat and drink. I am 5 weeks post op and have yet been able to eat anything other than liquids. If you combine that with the 2 weeks of liquids per op that's 7 weeks of no food...only liquids. I have such buyers remorse right now. Sorry guys just venting.....I know one day I will look back and be glad I had this surgery..lout right now it just sucks.

I feel exactly the same as you. I am almost 7 weeks post op and I have a stomach stricture and an ulcer. I have had 3 endoscopys and been dialated 3 times as well. They say what's happening to me happens to less than 1% of patients. My surgeon said out of the 2 thousand surgeries he's performed this has only happened to 60 ppl. I too have buyers remorse and I plan on going to the support groups and telling my story bc they never made me aware of ANY of this. I am beyond frustrated and I feel like I'm going to die at times! The pain the nausea the vomiting the weakness. I barely even drink....maybe 6 ounces a day. I've lost 40+ lbs so far but so what! This is so not what I signed up for

I so hear you! I just got back to my room. They did the dialation and did a scraping of my esophagus and stomach to get rid of More scar tissue about an hour ago. I also have strictures in my stomach and in my esophogas. My doctor also found a hernia this time, It just keeps getting better. I don't remember them saying any of these complications when I was going through the process. I'm ready to get this all past me. Angela are you feeling any better since the last procedure? I hope so!

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
