If you have a number to call for after hours concerns...I'd use it. Even if they don't want to send you to the ER, they'll likely want to keep track of this. And they may opt to send you to the ER.

Does not sound like dumping.

Update us when you can. Wishing you the best.

I hate that you are experiencing such unpleasant episode. I disagree about it not sounding like dumping. I'm about 4 weeks out and this sounds very similar to what I experienced. I too thought it came out of nowhere but later found out it was dumping from 2 tortilla chips I ate like 30mins or so before episode started. I walked and walked, I took my gas medicine....pepcid and reglan. Took about 1 to hour to and a half but It FINALLY let up. The dry heaving was the worst.....thought I was going to detach an organ and spit it up. IT WILL PASS, I PROMISE. I agree that it wouldn't hurt to let you doc know though.

:( It could be so many things. Can you keep any fluids down?

For me, it turned out to be severe constipation and I was so backed up, nothing else would go down! LOL. I had no. idea. Zero. Ideas. Until it happened to me. Very back bowel cramping, but no productivity. Just bad, bad, bad, bowel cramps and hurling up my toes. Only time since surgery I've hurled.

Thanks for the concern. The symptoms actually passed about 10 minutes after I posted and I feel fine now. I plan on sharing the episode with my doctor at my next appointment.

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
