Food poisoning after gastric sleeve



Recommended Posts

Has anyone else dealt with this? I got food poisoning (intestinal infection) in Mexico this week and had to be admitted to the hospital. I got very dehydrated quickly. Seemed way worse than when I’ve had food poisoning in the past.

Oh gosh, sounds awful. I haven't thrown up since the sleeve, so I think it would be awful. So sorry about your food poisoning.

@GradyCat—thank you. I hadn’t either (18 months PO). It was horrible. Starting to feel better now but only eating rice and toast which seems so strange.

I haven't experienced it, but I had to get medical sign off from my surgeon for a work assignment in a place that has a LOT of gastrointestinal bugs. When talking to him, he said that my reaction to stomach illness would be the same as anyone else's - and he said that in the official paperwork, too. I wonder if maybe you just got a really bad version of the illness?

Thanks for this—good to know!

I would think that in the early stages post op, it could be more serious (incision still healing). Not necessarily 1+ years out. That said... I am kind of scared of experiencing my first stomach bug or food poisoning just because of my new small stomach! I have only thrown up once... and my stomach emptied quickly that time, but I have gotten nausea many times which seems worse than before. My stomach doesn't tolerate as much as it used to.

This year was first time committing since surgery almost three years ago, I got a stomach flu. Horrible but felt no different that before surgery. I hate vomiting I was very nervous for the first time.
