I am currently 2.5 years out after Gastric Bypass. I have had a lot of ups and downs but something new has started. I can eat and drink fine and all of a sudden I feel like I have a stomach virus and throw up any little sips I take. This usually last for about 4 hours and passes. I am not sure why this is happening and if it has happened to anyone else.

Start tracking your food again. Just so that you can have a timeline and hopefully locate a cause. It could be some form of dumping. Pay attention to what you are eating and how long between eating and the issues. Are you still paying attention to fat and sugar? Is your Water in take still really good? Curious if it's a motility issue caused by either a food type or a lack of water in the intestinal tract. Or it could be a stricture of the intestines causing a partial blockage with certain foods. Have you reached out to your doctors/surgeon about it?

Try instead of cups,mini-cups, a teaspoon slowly at a time. Sometimes Crystal lite, Imo or another gentle flavor over straight Water. I had my best luck with weak herbal tea that was warm. And I will be 3 months/13 weeks from my own RnY tomorrow ,still prone to vomiting et all. You see I have the dubious honor of being one of less than 5% that have it as rocky as I have had. I developed a stomal stricture and 5 post-surg ulcers, but with my surgeons help and my own inner strength I am and will be healing. And I do not regret or malign my surgery. A little more than 1 year ago I was 100 pounds heavier, in pain and no much of a future ahead. Although I do heal slowly, at 72 you often do, I will heal, reach my goal weight, be much smaller, but the 2 most important facets. I will be alive and have a much better future. I'm almost always on here and I ❤ helping others along the way!👸😛👼

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
