I'm 8 months out and experiencing my first stomach virus. I'm miserable. I've noticed that what I'm getting up and out (you see where I'm going with this) is minimal. I'm wondering if because of this the virus is taking longer to move through my system. This is day 4. Wahhhh

Has anyone experienced the stomach virus post surgery and had the same experience? Any advise appreciated. Thanks!

Oh man :( not looking forward to it.

I vomited all of one time so far, and since we don't drink with our meals, it was heavy and thick, and no fun to bring up. (You'd think it was Peanut Butter or meat... but, no, it was cottage cheese!).

I'd recommend staying on a full-liquid diet throughout a stomach bug. That will help you stay hydrated and your stomach won't have to work so hard bringing things up.

It seemed like when I was 1 year post-op, I experience a stomach virus. It went away rather quickly. I attribute this to the quantity of Vitamins I had to take daily after my RNY gastric bypass surgery.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
