Oh no, I'm sooo so sorry! I wish there was something I could say to make it better, but hopefully this passes soon. I had horrible nausea in pregnancy and lived on lemon popsicles. Maybe give those a try? Sorry can't be of more help, but wish you well!

Oh honey. I don’t think that is part of it. You may have something going on medically other than the sleeve. Please call your surgeon ASAP and explain what’s going on.

Oops didn’t mean it to sound like I was suggesting a pregnancy, just saying maybe the popsicles would help similarly.

But yes, hope Doc can help. Sounds so horrible! Wishing you felt better @HLsleeve ❤️

Call your surgeon IMMEDIATELY! Personally, it sounds like you have stricture issues, but it could be an ulcer or any number of things! CALL THE DOCTOR!

@Stinkerbells2ndact I think we commented at the exact same time. I wasn’t saying to you I don’t think that’s part of it lol. So sweet. I do hope @HLsleeve that you do call your dr ASAP

Giving you a hug and support, I agree with the masses. Contact your surgeon for the next step you should take professionally.

((HUGS)) I hope it gets better soon and that you do call your surgeon's office, cause this sure doesn't sound normal, and not getting your liquids or nutrition in you is dangerous.

I’m actually having a similar problem. I’m 3 weeks out and put myself back on the liquid diet because I was throwing up food and having severe cramping and diarrhea. These past couple of days I am struggling to get my liquid intake in. Planning on calling my surgeon tomorrow

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
