Nausea after surgery...what is your experience?



Recommended Posts

I'm nearly 2 weeks post op. Am having nausea at times that is very unpleasant and there has been no change to what I'm eating. Is this still normal? What are other's experiences with nausea? Does it settle? How long did it take? Or is this something we have to put up with?

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. You are only 2 weeks out. Give yourself time to heal. Things are going to change over time. Welcome to the surgery losers bench.

Thank you. I think I'm starting to just be getting a bit more emotional

Emotions are also understandable.

This is sometimes a point where people feel a bit of buyers remorse and emotions. Give things time. Once you are able to get real food in and see your weightloss progress your emotions will be more positive.

Take care of yourself. Great things to come!

I'm still on Zofran, supposed to stop at 14 days but still emesis prone. Missed my 4 o'clock dose, just upchucked cottage cheese. Not worth it to cut a dose.😐

In some states it's the Queen's Birthday holiday. In my state it was last weekend. But who doesn't love a holiday Monday? :)

The nausea thing just started for me this afternoon. We had gone out to pick up V8 (my new favourite thing) and I had a cup of peppermint green tea. Once we got home I had this huge wave of nausea that I just cannot shake, even with ondansetron. I'm hoping it's just the tea that upset my poor little pouch and that it settles with resumption of Water and my other thin liquids.

That sounds about right frust8. It was done at Ohio State. Sounds like you should have traveled north to Ann Arbor at University of Michigan. Lol

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
