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.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
