another d*mn ulcer



Recommended Posts

I have another ulcer. I am 100% positive. It feels EXACTLY like it did when I had my last one. I can't get an endoscopy or any real medical care because if I take one more day of leave I get fired. Period. Fortunately, when my herniated disc was misdiagnosed as a stomach ulcer (don't ask if you didn't see that post), they had me buy TONS of Carafate so.... to Carafate it is. I also have some Nexium, so I am starting that, too. BURNS LIKE THE FIRES OF HELL. I hate this. I just sat on the bathroom floor of my job for 40 minutes because it burned so badly I couldn't stand up. Time for bland, soft foods. It's one of those pains where it hurts so badly you physically can't cry. It is subsiding now and was triggered as I was eating lunch. Jeeeeessuuusss.

That sounds horrible. Hope you are able to get to the Dr to get some confirmation of what is wrong

And which stomach is it in? Your pouch or your remnant?

Oh, I am so sorry! I just revised to bypass and fear getting ulcers as well. Had gerd and hernia with sleeve so didn’t have a choice but to revise.

I do hope that you feel better soon.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
