Band to sleeve revision post op-feeling horrible


7 posts in this topic

I just had my band revised to a sleeve. I am day 3 post op and soooooo nauseous 🤢 I can barely eat and my belly is so upset. I threw up yesterday, that was awful. Today I managed a few sips of the Protein Drink and a few sips of Water. I feel like I am never going to feel better. Please tell me it gets better Ughhhhh

It gets so much better! My first few days after my sleeve surgery were ghastly, but I was back at work after a week. Two months out, I am still learning about my sleeve’s tolerances, but I am losing weight steadily and feeling great.

Take care and hold on for a few more days, it will be great.

The advice I got was to just sip sip sip small portions all day long to stay hydrated. I couldn't stand Water so I switched to warm (not hot, not cold) herbal tea - for some reason I could drink that. It does get better, but those early weeks were rough for me too. I am sorry you are going through this - I remember how hard it was.

It does get better. Talk to your doc about nausea medicine. They sent me home with zofran prescription. He did not want me vomiting and heaving.
Also I've heard that some people can tolerate drinking broth or crystal light versus plain Water. You must get in at least 48-64 oz of Fluid. I'm 10 wks post op and stopped zofran about 3 wks ago

Also I drank Vitamin Water zero, Lipton diet iced green tea, a gazillion sugar free popsicles :-) and also hot ginger tea.

Thank you so much for the suggestions! I will try them. I am feeling a little better today, but still pretty weak feeling and a little nauseous. One day at a time I guess!
