I’m back in the hospital. I tried to avoid coming here for the longest for obvious reasons. I’ve been in the waiting room for 3 hours, I’m super dehydrated but every time I drink Water I gag/regurgitate and it’s only 3 sips each time. I honestly hate how I’m living right now and I regret my surgery w every bone in my body. I wish I never did it and there’s nothing I can do but basically suffer. I also started getting really bad panic attacks and that’s another reason i’m just fed up with all of this. I pray things turn around before I go insane.

Hang in there, you’ll get through this. They’ll get you hydrated and you’ll be home before you know it. Have you spoken to your surgeon?

Girl, I feel you! I went through hell and back after I had surgery. My recovery was awful. I couldn't drink Water, I would throw up after I tried a Protein Shake, and i wasn't keeping anything else down. I ended up getting super dehydrated and I had to get IV fluids. I instantly felt regret and kept asking myself why the hell I did it in the first place.

It took me 3 months to recover and feel somewhat normal. Do I regret my decision now? No, not at all. I would go through it all over again. Just hang in there and listen to your body and know it will go away soon and you will be back to normal.

Just had another swallow test , and once again everything is clear and “beautiful” as my doctor said. No one seems to understand why I keep throwing up but I’m back down to stage 3 with food. I don’t really wanna go home just yet if this is gonna continue

So you can drink the required amount of contrast media required for a sufficient swallowing test just fine but you regurgitate 3 sips of Water?

Cry me a river I see the kind of person you are through your replies. Yes I drank two sips of the contrast and yes it was horrible and I didn’t keep it down.

Listen, you obviously don't like me. Fine, I can live with the fact that some random stranger on the internet doesn't like me.

However, that you don't like me doesn't change the fact that your swallowing test was obviously not normal. Patients with a normal swallowing test don't throw up two sips of contrast media into the radiologist's face.

So once you're done complaining about me you might want to take into consideration that your test wasn't "all clear and beautiful" and maybe you'd like to get a second opinion about what is still normal or not more than 3 months after surgery.

I don't understand how they could even do a proper test with only two sips.

That's why I asked how it was even possible for her to drink the required amount of contrast media because she wrote her doctors claimed everything was "clear and beautiful" and one should think that proper testing was done since they obviously came to the conclusion that everything was alright. Unfortunately she decided to lash out and I'm not in the mood for dealing with this kind of behavior. I'm here as a private person and patient after all, too.

      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!!!

      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...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
