Just curious...I am 11 days post-op and today I have been extremely nauseous when I am drinking my meals. It starts from the first sip, so I know I am not drinking too much, but just can't stomach anything today.

Anyone else having that problem? It seems to have just started today...really feel cruddy

Did anything change in your diet yesterday? When the doc made all of these changes in my meds friday to try to get me some relief, that is when I felt the worst. Then today, I went back to basics, no new meds and no new foods, and I did pretty well.

Are you mobile? I also found that reclining while drinking really made me feel bad. Although my stomach is sore in the upright position, I feel better from a nausea standpoint if I drink that way.

I also had 2 very bad days and both days I added Mio to my Water. It was tasty, but both days I felt bad...so will no longer try those.

What about BM? Although I was not constipated, I had not gone in about 5 days. Took some Milk of Magnesia yesterday and cleared things out. I think that helped too.

All very good questions ATL...thank you for responding...here are the answers...

Nope...nothing new in the diet (sadly). Same slim fast, same Protein, plain Water (I don't like flavored waters) and same V-8.

I am relatively mobile...I get my walks in to about 30-40 minutes a day, but do spend the majority of the day in a somewhat reclined position due to some continued pain around the large incision.

I have been drinking in somewhat of a reclined position...perhaps that is the culprit...tomorrow I will sit up more and see if that fixes it.

Thankfully, I seem to be regular in the BM department..although it was a tad loose this morning TMI

I started having to swallow the Nystatin (for the thrush) about 3 days ago...wonder if it is a delayed reaction to having to swallow that now.

Thanks for the hints...I'll sit up more tomorrow and see if that works!

MnWin I was given a medication right off the bat in the hospital called Bentyl which stops stomach and intestinal spasms that can lead to cramping and nausea. Have you been given it also? If not it may be something to bring up with your doc. It helped me immensely. Just a thought :)

Good morning all. I'm packed and ready as I'll ever be to head to the hospital. Sliding over from the warm up bench to the losers bench. Will be in touch when I can.

Thanks for the advisement. I was not given any meds for nausea to bring home (despite having a Scopolamine patch, and vomiting while I was in the hospital). If it doesn't get better today, I will give the good doc a call...I don't have my follow up appointment until the 30th.

Well, crappy crap. I awoke this am to left shoulder pain again. :-( (8 out of 10). I thought I was past that since I'm 5 days post-op. Not only do I have shoulder pain, but also sharp, throbbing stomach/ bowel pain. Think I'll just take it easy today and rest. God bless each of you awaiting surgery today and the rest of the week. Keep us posted on your recovery. Has anyone else had hot-cold issues? One minute I'm cold and the next I'm hot as hades. Very confusing.

Need some suggestions....I'm 6 days post op and feel like I'm struggling! I am basically living on SF pudding and juice. I've tried a couple different Protein Shakes since I've been home & they make me gag! I've gotten some cream Soups down but I don't like them. I'm just feeling a little down. I can start puréed food tomorrow so I'm hoping that will help.

My experience has been similar to yours. I gag on most of the tastes of Protein supplements. I tried a Protein Shake "Oh Yeah" bananas yesterday and it has gone down better. What kind of pureed foods are you allowed so soon? My Dr. has me on all liquids the first 2 weeks.

I am feeling weak, and dehydrated, but doing the best I can to keep moving forward. Hopefully the pureed foods are helping you!

Yes I get hot than cold..as I am healing it seems as if the incision pain is a sharp pain shooting right through the incision.

I've been feeling very cold lately and a little hot once in a while -- I also had my first experience with some mild stomach area cramping which I attribute to the fact that I drank my Protein Shake too close to bed time

It's hard to get down 2 Protein Shakes a day for me even tho I have no real issues swallowing... I will head out soon to pick up some Isopure clear and hope that helps me get in my recommended 40+ oz of Protein at this stage

I hear apple melon and grape flavored are pretty good

I meant 50-70g of Protein per day

      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.
