I am regretting everything about having this done right now. Every single thing I eat or drink except Water makes me nauseas. Everything. I'm not getting anywhere near my Protein and I have headaches. I am 2 weeks post op. I'm getting so discouraged and concerned.

I'm so sorry you're struggling...I'm about to hit 4 weeks post-op and generally, I feel better every day. Have you talked with your surgical team about your nausea? You really have to because you may need to be on some kind of medication to keep the nausea at bay so that you can eat. Your headaches are almost certainly related to lack of food and/or liquids. Do you have any energy at all? Are you able to walk, or get outside in the sun? That may help your mood. Call your doc tomorrow, don't let this go on any longer. By week 2, you really should be feeling better than it sounds like you are. Take care!

Have you asked your Dr to give you an anti-nausea med? Concentrate on getting fluids - dehydration is serious and will land you back in the hospital. Try different temps - some folks tolerate warm more than cold (or vice versa). Drink something with some electrolytes. Try tea or broth. Call your surgeon if it's not any better! You won't regret the surgery once you feel better!

You need some nausea meds. I understand the nausea; I still get it sometimes. It will get better, but only if you manage to stay hydrated and get some nourishment. Your body has been through a lot. Be patient with yourself, but don't be afraid to let your doctor know that you are struggling. Good luck, and feel better soon!

Please call your doctors office in the morning. At 2 weeks for me everything made me nauseous as well and the Dr. prescribed Zofran for me. Dehydration will earn you another trip to the hospital. I wish you well. It will get better!

I have Zofran for nausea - it's wonderful to take when needed. Please don't let yourself become dehydrated, it's awful! I've been in the ER twice for dehydration (missed my best friend's wedding :( ) Take care of yourself & stay strong...it gets better! <3

      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.
