I had surgery yesterday and was just discharged home from the hospital. I wanted to ask you guys about fluids when you came home.. I’ve been doing the sips every 2-3 minutes as instructed but it’s making me super nauseated. There is honestly no way I’m gonna be able to get 64 ounces in right now. I’m barely able to get 10. Is this bad I can’t get my fluids? Should I call my physician or is it normal not to be able to drink with getting nauseated right after surgery?

Its totally normal the way you feel. Hopefully they gave you some nausea tabs. I found that using med cups to get in my fluids really helped. Hopefully the nausea will go away soon. Yout body is in the process of healing, things will get better. Good luck!!

Thank you! Yeah they gave me Zofran but I called the doctor and they just called in something else. Hopefully it works better. I feel pretty good if it wasn’t for this nausea. I’m trying warm broth now hoping that the temperature difference will help.

Warmer liquid are easier to go down. Anything extremely cold hurts.

Yeah it’s not so much pain just every time I drink anything I’m getting nauseous. The broth didn’t help either. :-(

Congrats on your surgery! I'm sorry you're feeling crappy - those first few days can be really rough. You're doing the right thing by reaching out to your team for help with the nausea. I've always been really sensitive to anesthesia and I am so nauseous for days afterwards while it all works its way out of my system. You already know that you need to focus on liquids so if your new nausea meds aren't helping, you just get right back on that phone. Your team is there to help you and they want you to be successful, too.

While there's nothing we can do from here to help you nausea we can totally empathize with how much it sucks! I hope you heal quickly and feel better very, very soon.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
