No, it hasn’t. I barely get any fluids in and no Protein. I’m supposed to see my dr on Wednesday, if I make it that long before i have to go get IV fluids. As soon as i wake up in the mornings, I usually feel pretty good and hope for a good day but by the time I sit up, i can feel the nausea and miserableness set in.

One of the things I have to be careful of when I have anesthesia is a form of vertigo. It seems to be associated with they way they have to position my head during intubation and the length of time I'm held in that position. When I had my surgery I had six forms of anti-nausea medication and they finally had to give me Zofran in my IV to calm things down (but we anticipated this). Although you don't seem to be having anesthesia-induced nausea, you still need to get a handle on it somehow. Call your doctor and tell them you are suffering from nausea to the point where you cannot sit up or drink anything. See if they will prescribe a scopolamine patch to help with the nausea/dizziness, or ask if you can try taking Bonine (they are chewable... you could smush up 2 with a minimal amount of Water and try to get them down- IF your doctor says I's OK- you are barely post-surgical so don't do this on my suggestion!!!). If you can beat the nausea, you'll be able to drink. Concentrate on just getting some Fluid down; dehydration is a much bigger problem than lack of Protein. Good luck- being nauseous can make this all a whole lot more difficult than it needs to be.

Hey there. I’m sorry to hear you’re still dealing with a stricture and nausea and vomiting Frustr8. What are next steps to resolve it?? Things have been fairly smooth sailing for me so far. I’ve been on purees and soft foods and am slowly advancing my diet and trying to figure out what works best for me. Back to exercising. Down 52 pounds. Loss is sporadic. I’ll lose 4 one week and none the next. Hydration is still something I have to really work for but has been ok. I really hope they can get your stricture widened out soon. That’s a long time to be on liquids and fighting the nausea wars. Good luck!!

RosieT I wish I knew, I am growing weary of this alln yeah someone is going,to say " You,knew this wouldn't be easy" and sure we all,innately know this. But you know, we all book for the easiest smoothest path to our future. Nobody wants or desires a stricture. Especially with the ulcers I have attending You get pain, Is it hunger, has your pouch got empty, is your stomach spasming, is it the ulcers being tender, is there some residual gastric acid production,? Yeah no real reflux. but if you don't eat something at the right interval, when you do eat you will vomit it up anyway. In the old days the consul was Let your stomach rest, but it doesn't work that way for me. So I walk around with a bottle of Acai Grape by Nestle, keep sipping, got to keep the kidneys flowing. IDK I get so perplexed.
