Post-op severe nausea



Recommended Posts

Hello

I am 6 days post op, and for the last 5 of those have had debilitating and constant nausea. I hadn't seen this as a symptom in any of the research I did and I am quite miserable. Has anyone else had this? How long did it take to go? I'm at my wits' end so would really appreciate any insights or experience shared.

Many thanks

Not sure the band should be causing nausea... have you talked to your surgeon about this yet?

I’ve talked to the nurses. They say the band is just really enflamed. But I’m getting Water down (although certainly not enough), it’s just I feel so sick all the time. I am absolutely miserable

Try altering the temp of the Water to see if that helps any. Maybe some super cold water will help with swelling?

Hello Peridot,
I’m so sorry you are having issues with nausea. I just had my lap band surgery this past Thursday, 6/28. I have not experienced any nausea. I’m still on the clear liquid phase, but have no issues with Water, Crystal Light, Jello or broth. I start the liquid diet tomorrow. My doctor did prescribe 5 different meds after my surgery for acid reflux, nausea, blood clotting, pain and ulcers that I have to take for 2 weeks. The nausea medication I take every 4 hours which dissolves under my tongue is called Ondansetron. I go back on 7/12 for my first follow-up appointment. I hope you are feeling better soon and look forward to hearing about your progress.

Well, it took 10 days and a de-fill to stop feeling and being sick. Best guess was that the band was pressing on my Vegas nerve (that can’t possibly be the right name! I must have this wrong) which controls nausea. I felt better by the next day.

I have to do fluids for an additional week - and my sneaky body has suddenly wised up and I’m now putting ON weight (at c500-600 cals a day).

Really hoping I don’t get nausea after every fill

I’m so glad you are feeling better, Peridot. That’s great news and hopefully your next fill will not cause the same issue. I wish you the best of luck!!!

I haven’t had my first fill yet. I go back on 7/12 but that will only be 2 weeks post-op. I dont think I will have my first fill until 4 to 6 weeks post op. Should know more after my follow-up visit.

I look goward to hearing about your success😄

Ah, you’re ahead of me so please let me know how the fill goes! How are you feeling? Are you on the purée stage?

Not yet. I just started the liquid stage yesterday. I had Protein Shakes, yogurt and cream Soup with no issues. I was on Clear Liquids the 1st 3 days. I should start the puréed stage on 7/13 and regular foods on 7/27. Can’t wait!! I’ve been on liquids since 6/21. I’m ready for some variety.

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
