Thanks for the tip! I have always have post op nausea/vomiting so I have contacted my surgeon and requested this medication or something similar. I am waiting to hear back - keeping my fingers crossed.

My pharmacy had to order it, but it only took a day, and my insurance paid. It cost me $10.

I am out of surgery and I had a little bit of nausea, but that finally subsided. The gas however took a bit longer, Drinking hurt big timed, so I did what any mother would do... I patted and rubbed my chest until I burped.. It was the most wonderful burp I've had today. I'm feeling sooooo much better. How are the rest of the 11/8's?


I’m now a week post-op & it really is amazing how much better you feel each day. Even at day 3 I️ was worrying about how I️ could possibly work feeling like this. By day 5 I️ easily could have been at work. Just keep walking and burping!

On it.. Also I found that sugar free popcicles are my friend. A little trick I learned is to have a little bottle sprayer that I spray a little Water in my mouth to wet it and I get to sip the water.

What have people done for raising their bed? I am thinking if I just get a wedge pillow I will just slide over and off of it. I was thinking (redneck style) and putting cinderblocks under the mattress but the nurse said that won’t work. I can’t put risers under the feet of my bed. Any suggestions?

I had a rough start to recovery. My BP plummeted yesterday morning and I passed out. They said I had a small bleed. I got blood transfusion and bolus IV's. My heart rate has been high. Feeling better today.

I'm glad you're feeling better today. So am I. Everyday is going to get better and better.. I know it.

I am glad you are both feeling better. The bleed must have been scary. It’s my turn in one week, but I have had good luck with surgeries, so I am calm.

You'll do great then. I was very calm before my surgery. I took it one day at a time. I knew there would be some bumps but that's okay.. bumps help you learn how to use your new tool.

Thank you. I am excited to get past the 14 day liquid diet. I am on day 6, but it is really day 7 because I was in LA for business and did Soup on day 1.

      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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
