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. [emoji4]

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. [emoji3][emoji106]

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
