Still in hospital vomiting blood



Recommended Posts

3 days post op. I can't keep anything down Everytime I puke it's pure blood. The docs, residents and nurses agree that it is the staple line and it will heal on its own. My blood counts indicate that I'm doing ok so I tend to believe them. Planning 2 or 3 more days in the hospital. Hope this means very little to my post post op recovery. Feeling bummed.

Oh no! Feel better! If I hear one person saying this is the easy way put for weight lost. I'll loose it! On day 5 feeling little better. But still in pain from gas and incisions. Can't drink much. You have it worst tho. Hopefully your bleeding stop soon.

Thanks y'all. It must have helped because I'm feeling better. Last blood emesis was 9 hours ago. I've kept 40 cc down so far, working on the next 15. Doc is going to treat me for a bleeding disorder if I vomit blood anymore. Pain is minimal, nausea is better.

@@foodfighter78, once my ileus resolved (i.e., once I pooed) i started feeling better. Sending positive, feel good vibes your way.

6 days post-op and still in the hospital. No longer vomitting blood so there is light at the end of the tunnel. After my rave of feeling better due to a bowel movement my bowels decided to take a break. I've been throwing up nearly everything I take in, no matter how slowly I take it in. Had a CT scan yesterday that showed a partial bowel obstruction. Today I will have a follow through study, I think I have to drink barium and then have a series of x-rays to show where and how large the obstruction is. I'm hoping it is nothing more than swelling at the Y and only needs time to resolve on its own.

I hit the wall last night when the nurse aid put my TED hose back on with a bunch of wrinkles behind my knees. Kind of defeats the purpose of the stockings if wrinkles are cutting off your circulation. I tried to fix it myself but couldn't so waited until the nurse came in and asked her to fix it. She was more concerned with how dirty they were and tried to pull them up past my knees. I bit her head off. Mostly because it took her two hours to get back to me about an order for Protonix (the resident MD's are in house so there was no reason it took 2 hours) and partially because no crap they are dirty and stretched out I've had them for 6 days without being washed, I've walked and walked and walked in them...Anyway, Here's to hoping I can go home today.

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
