Vomit after drinking and eating



Recommended Posts

I’m not sure what’ I’m doing wrong. I’m 12 days post op. I was told to s art and increase my foods, I start purées soon and to add a scrambled egg. So I did, I got maybe 1/4 of it eaten, then within 5 minutes, it all came back up. It’s been about 5 hours since, I’ve vomited maybe twice more. I thought I woul d have a glass of milk, as I felt fine. Nope, that came back up too. I a, burping constantly. Am I overfull? I’ve only had 1/2 Protein Shake, about 30 oz of Water, 1/4 egg and 2 sips of milk all day. Does this mean I’m not ready for that type of food?

Are you taking a good half hour to eat,? laying down your spoon between bites?, and they should not be bigger than a dime. You never can bolt down food like you once did. Pretend you are at the Dolls Tea Party. What still works for me is the 2oz cup of Fluid every 15 minutes, that makes 8 oz in a hour. If you keep up for the 8 or so hours you are awake you will have fluid enough (64oz). I still. often will even do my Protein Shakes in that manner. Your tummy may not want the solidness of eggs, you can step back down to liquids, clear and murky Soups, thin puree, see if that will stay down better. If you continue doing this you should bring your bariatric team into the loop. You could end up like me , 8 months out, still battling a strictured stoma to my pouch and multiple ulcers in my jejunem, the part of small intestine my pouch is supposed to empty into. And I still vomit,3 times this week, tried to introduce some tender ground chicken, Precious Pouch would have none of that so up it came. The next was trying to drink,instead of ladylike sips, and the 3rd? Don't really know why it happened just that it did. I still have pain over the location frequently. But I realize for me, it is what it is, and might as well accept and still move forward with peace and 😂 joy.

Good chance the egg just made you sick. Take it easy for a day and try eggs in a few week maybe. Eggs always make me feel sick still.

I couldn't eat eggs at the beginning - I can now. Maybe just give them a miss for a while and try again later once you've healed up.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
