How many mgs or Zofran were you prescribed to take at once? I noticed that my prescription is 4 mg, which according to the internets is the dose for a kid. I took some this morning and it hasn’t done much of anything for me.

Depends on what you need AnnieD, 4mg typically works for me and some people need 8mg. So if 4 mg not cutting it, I'll do 8 mg and speak with your doctor.
I hope your nausea improves![emoji169][emoji169][emoji169]

I was prescribed 8 mg. and unfortunately it hasn't helped at all when I've suffered nausea bouts. The bouts are unpredictable and can occur after I've drank a Protein Shake or eaten something that, until then, never had bothered my stomach before.

I see my surgeon for a checkup in two weeks and will mention this again. For now, I just have to ride out the nausea which sometimes lasts 14 hours or so.

Oh no, I’m sorry to hear this. That sounds awful! Do you have a scopolamine patch as well? Between that and the zofran my nausea seems very well controlled. I’ve only experienced very short, very light amounts of nausea since my surgery (which was last Wednesday).

I had the patch right after surgery, but now I'm three months out so don't have one anymore. I will ask my surgeon about that. Thanks.

Mine was for 8mg and I found I didn’t need them much. I found when I had mild nausea I drank fluids with electrolytes and rested for a bit and I was fine.

sorry you are having to deal with this at all. Prayers that you feel better.

Sorry to hear it's not really helping. Maybe my nausea isn't that bad in comparison to others because I have a Zofran prescription for only 4mg and it has been a life saver whenever I've needed it. And I only take one. Definitely get help from your Dr. because as you know nausea is miserable to deal with. Best wishes on getting it under control.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.
