Hello all !
I was just curious if any of you had experienced any of these few things . I am almost three weeks out and as of a few days ago my intake of food and Protein has been limited Bc i can’t seem to keep anything down not even Water. Everything that i loved a few days ago now just the scent makes me dry heave or actually throw up. None of the medications i have for nausea has helped.. in fact they have just made me throw up. I’ve also started developing fevers and constant chills even w/o a noticeable fever. I also now have a really sharp stabbing pain in my upper abdomen. I did contact my doctors office this evening to let them know what’s going on . I’m just curious if any of you have experienced the same things and what have you either done to remedy it or what has your doctor done ?

Thank you guys so much for checking in on me. I did have my appointment this morning and turns out i was dehydrated (which I already knew) and i have a stricture from the scarring between my pouch and my small intestine . They found this out by doing an upper GI . My doctor prescribed a few different anti nausea medications for me to help take in fluids. Even with the medicine i still feel terrible but i have been able to eat a few ice chips here and there .. although I still dry heave. I go back to see my doctor next week. He hopes that the problem can resolve itself but if it does not i will have to undergo surgery .

Just a little update 💓 I have now been admitted to the hospital . I came in last night around 11 pm due to a really bad dry heaving / vomiting spell that lasted around 25 mins and i couldn’t even keep down the little bit of Water i drank just to take my anti nausea medication . I waited around 2 hours or so to be seen and i was almost admitted right away . I was severely dehydrated . What was supposed to be an “overnight “ stay turned into “hopefully discharged on Monday” . I do for sure have a stricture and the doctors are thinking possible pancreatitis as well . But they aren’t sure and they would prefer not to operate on the stricture as of yet unless things don’t improve by Monday . I have also been surprised with the possibility of getting nutrients via IV.. Which i am not stoked about at all. I work in a hospital and i hate when my patients have to go through that . Unfortunately it might be me soon 😭.

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

      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.
