5 weeks post sleeve, stomach ache and nausea



Recommended Posts

So I screwed up yesterday and had a few bites of things I shouldn't have. Yes I know it was wrong and I don't intend to do it again. About 24 hours ago I sampled some of the "fair food" my husband and sons brought home -- a couple of bites of funnel cake and a couple bites of melted cheese from on top of a slice of pizza. I didn't seem to suffer any ill effects from it last evening, but all day today I have been experiencing nausea and a stomach ache on the front left side of belly.

My question is: Do you think these symptoms have been caused by those illegal foods I ate around 5pm yesterday?

My nausea began around 8am today and my bellyache has been the worst this afternoon. Today I have consumed my Protein Shake and 1/2 cup of 1% cottage cheese.

Thank you for any advice!

Hard to tell. But I developed nausea and stomach ache at 3 weeks post op. It was exacerbated when I drank Water, and lessened when I ate. It persisted, but gradually lessened to a point where I just have a mild stomach ache from time to time now.

Very hard to tell what is used in fair food and how clean it is, it may just be a cleanliness issue or the oil used for the funnel cakes are not going to sit well with you I mm the future. Go easy for a while this may be your dumping syndrome, even sleevers can dump...

Thank you both very much for your responses! Definitely a lesson learned about sampling things I shouldn't. I'm hoping the bellyache stays gone today. The nausea has hung around but cottage cheese goes down ok.

Thanks again!

I'm doing ok. Still having bouts of nausea here and there since posting this question. (Today actually!) Sometimes I get it just from drinking my Protein shake! Not sure why that has started happening, but I am rolling with it and trying to stay positive. I drive to Pittsburgh tomorrow for my six week post-op check up. Hoping for more weight lost.

Thanks for asking about me! :)

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

        I feel ya.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").
