4 Weeks post op - I don’t want to do this anymore [emoji25][emoji25][emoji25]

How are you doing, @Brandi.? I would love to read an update from you if you're able. I hope you were able to get some help over the last couple of days and figure out what's wrong and get some relief. We're rooting for you.

Agreed Little Green, I'm curious how she is doing as well. I hope she's on the mend now!

Thanks for all of the advice. I take my PPI twice a day as well. I’m going to switch to nexium to see if that will help. I’m also ordering the unjury today in the chicken flavor and unflavored. I have tried so many different clear Proteins and my body just won’t accept them. They won’t stay down.

I’m trying to stay positive, but you know how it is when you’re just tired of being tired, weak from vomiting, and trying to maintain a normal self while working. It drains all of your positive vibes.

believe it or not but the generic for ranitidine works the best i have a hitana hernia that will get repaired when i get sleeved and i get buy it at costco even the wallmart one works great and believe me i get the burning wanting to throwup feeling and the generic brand works great

Just looking for an update. It sounds like your issues might be compounded by your Gallbladder. The inability to get thing down makes me think stricture as well but then knowing how bad Gallbladder pain can make you feel (having mine out 2/16/18) many of your symptoms could be attributed to that.

Also I found Protonix to work best for me. I took it for about 6 months and am now free from any PPI without any issues.

Hello everyone,
Monday I had another upper GI which did show I had a stricture. I was admitted into the hospital on Wednesday. Thursday they did an endoscopy with balloon to open the stricture. I was released yesterday (Saturday) since my vomiting and heartburn was under control.
So I’m out and I feel SO much better. I actually slept through the night last night and woke up early today.
The doctor did send me home on raglan and lorazepam to help everything move through my stomach.
My only issue now is figuring out what my stomach can handle so that I can meal prep for work this week.

Thank you all for checking in on me and getting me all of the great advice and support !!
