My mother in law is getting ready to have surgery and mentioned not being able to throw up, ever again, even if she gets sick. I’m 10 months post op, and went through months of pre-op education with Kaiser and I have never heard this?! I’ve also thrown up twice since surgery.... so, is this a thing for people?

It’s practically impossible to throw up with a lapband, I wouldn’t have thought the same was true with sleeve or bypass.

She said it has something to do with the stomach muscles.

I'm 6 months post bypass. I've barfed, so it is possible.

I threw up once about 3 weeks out and it was not "that bad." Now, although I get horribly nauseated at times, I cannot throw up. I had RNY about 13months ago.

I've not heard that. I've thrown up the "foamies" with the sleeve when I eat a food I can't tolerate.

I am one month postop sleeve and I cannot throw up. I actually tried yesterday after getting nauseated by a new food I introduced. I am only able to dry heave which is a little unnerving

Probably TMI...but I feel I'm among friends here.

With the sleeve, you don't create as much bile. You can still throw up, it's just different. I had food poisoning and it was hard and different, but I was able to throw up. Instead of a liquid, I had more of a foam. It seemed to take a lot more out of me physically. My entire body hurt the next day.

I have yet to throw up since I have had my sleeve, but I never really threw up anyway. I know that people with they bypass can not throw up. I've listened to my wife do the dry heaves more than once LOL! And she had the bypass.

Well, I certainly can throw up- and have done it A LOTTTTTTTT....ugh. But it isn't as bad as I thought it might be. Hopefully I am about to turn a corner and won't be doing it much more if at all!

I threw up about 2 months out, first time trying fish after the surgery, i felt way better after I did, it wasn’t hard at all and I didn’t have pain after. I knew it took me almost 9 months before I could burp properly though.

She may have gastroparesis. It affects the stomach walls.

      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.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
