I'm 8 weeks post opt and everything thing has been good up until now. For the past week I haven't been able to keep solid food down. I'm good with liquid but not food the smallest amount of anything makes me either sick to my stomach or I throw it up. Anyone else have this problem? Should I call my doctor?

I would call the doctor. That's what he/she is there for!

Yep! Could be a stomach bug, but strictures are common-ish at 8 weeks postop.

Keep pushing fluids so you don't get dehydrated.

Agreed with calling your doc. I don't feel that I've heard/seen that issue. I'm about at the same point and am doing fine with regular food.

Make sure you're still doing the little bites, I'm told the size of my thumbnail and to chew it very good 20 - 30 times and to go slow. Takes a while for your stomach to tell your brain it's full. Generally a meal is taking me 30 min to an hour to eat.

If I'm not paying attention and eat it in 15 mins, I find out I ate too much too quick and get stomach pains but no nausea yet.
