Hello, have you been eating anything different recently such as fattier foods? I am also six months out and have noticed that I had to go back to the basics of Soup and softer foods for awhile because I have been nauseous lately as well.

Please call your surgeon on Monday or asap and discuss it with them.

Agree with @JessLess. If you can't keep fluids down today, this is an ER visit. This can be many things at 6months. But generally, you don't feel nausea and food aversion like that at 6 months.

If you have pain associated with this nausea, you should call your doc this morning and discuss if this is an ER visit. It could be simple constipation, a bug, too deep in ketosis (probably not), stricture, ulcers, or worse, a tortion (partial obstruction) from a twisted gut or internal hernia.

Or it could be gallbladder, appendix, pancreatitis, so many things and many of them are true emergencies.

Hope you get to the bottom of it quickly and begin feeling better.

Is it a long term thing or has the nausea just recently happened?

I'm writing for my friend she was found fine until she got severe esophagitis they had to put feeding tube in through nose.

So I had an appointment with my surgeon yesterday they admitted me into the hospital ran some tests this morning and I have a hiatal hernia

Interesting! I had one that they fixed in surgery. Glad they solved it, should be easy to take care of right?

I go in for surgery Thursday morning. Should be a simple fix.

They said eveytime I swallow the hernia blocks my stomach so nothing is going in the only option it has is to come up that explains why I have done nothing but vomit. I'm just ready to feel better again

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
