Consistently feeling icky...6 weeks post-op



Recommended Posts

Does anyone else just feel icky all the time after surgery? Not debilitating but I just feel slightly pukey almost al the time. When I’m hungry, after I eat, in-between...I go about my day just fine only have this gnawing puke feeling constantly.

What surgery did you have? Do you feel constantly over full? Do you have difficulty swallowing? Do you vomit or just feel like you're going to?

Hi! I had the Gastric Sleeve, haven’t ever actually thrown up just feel nauseous. Oh and nope no issues swallowing it’s just a weird pukey feeling. I also don’t feel overfill just eat three or four itty bitty meals per day as per the instructions I was given. It’s a mystery - lol!

It's normal, it's takes some people longer to heal, and for inflammation to subside. Just keep Fluid intake high. I still had slimes/foamies and upchucked months out from food. And you have low energy from lack if calories, just make sure you get your Protein and fluids in and a few vegetables and it will progress. You could however have a bit of reflux, you might try a small dose of prilosec to see if that takes care of it.

Yup. Normal! Be patient with yourself and your new sleeve. Things will get better.

Thanks so much! I hadn’t read anything about people having this so I was concerned that something bad was possibly going on. :)

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
