I’m 3 weeks post op gastric bypass and these past couple of days I have been extremely nauseous. Zofran isnt helping not are those nausea Patches they gave me. How did you guys treat nausea post op. Before the operation I’d have ginger ale, and saltines. But obviously those aren’t an option now.

i only started the purée food diet a week ago and have actually put myself back on the liquid diet until my appt on the 27th because I keep having complications (inability to tolerate most foods (severe cramping, vomiting and diarrhea). But now with this nausea I’m struggling to even get in a Protein Drink or my daily liquid intake. Yesterday I had 20 oz liquid. It’s Sunday so my dr isn’t even in the office.

Ginger broth is a option! Also try a sea sick med like Bonnine - I only had a little issue and i fish a ton so i had it in my house, Worked for me

I had my surgeon call me in a prescription of promethanzine?? It’s generic for fenegran or phenegren I don’t know how to spell it. It does make you drowsy but helped me so much.

im 3 weeks too and the only thing I’m eating right now is scrambled eggs and my Protein Shakes. Mostly anything else makes me super sick. I’m lactose intolerant now and hoping that will go away, but I can tolerate cottage cheese.

I'd call your clinic in the morning. If you can't even keep liquids down, then that's a problem. You're getting to that window of time when people can start getting strictures, so if it's something like that, you'll need to get it fixed. I'm not saying that that's what it is, but if it is, your clinic needs to know about it. You can survive for awhile without food, but not fluids.

Should I call the surgeon or the bariatric primary that saw me? Not sure which one would deal with it

either. If it's a stricture, they'll know how to deal with it. Strictures happen to about 5% of bypass patients, so they've both seen them before.

Ok so update: just saw my surgeon, he’s scheduling me for an endoscopy in two weeks to check for strictures. I’ll let you guys know how it goes

      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!
