Heat exhaustion or WHAT?!



Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone! I had my surgery on 3/19 and things have been going reasonably well for me— no throwing up, bad reactions or the like. I’ve been walking my dog increasingly and I’m at about 2 miles with him. That brings me to today, it’s a beautiful 85 degree day in Virginia and I’m camping with friends. We decided (more like they decided) that a 2-mile hike would be fun so off we went. By the time we got back to the site I was dizzy, no Water was going down and I was extremely nauseous. Now I’m sitting in the car cooling off but I still can’t seem to get any fluids down (I’ve tried warm water, cold water, Gatorade) and everything makes me nauseous. What can I do? Any advice is appreciated!

The heat has dragged me down too. It's too much, too soon for the body. 30-something degree temperature swings are difficult to adjust to. To top it off, tomorrow is supposed to be a high of only 50.

If you can't drink, you need to go to the hospital.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!
