Hi there! I’m 3 months into my surgery and since 2 months i haven’t really felt like myself, the first month of Gastric Sleeve was perfect no pain no nausea no vomiting no discomfort, but right after that 1 month mark passed everything went downhill, i have no appetite I’m always nauseous to the point where i vomit for relief, food portion wise I’m eating like a 4 month old, I’ve consulted my doctor and he proscribed meds. Took the dosage and term of meds and still nothing, was suppose to do a endoscopy can’t due to covid-19 situation, so I’m wondering is there anyone else out there who’s experienced this, I’ve asked my buddies if they’ve felt this and 15/15 said no, my symptoms consist of nausea dizziness vomiting loss of appetite lower stomach pain dull kind of. Food doesn’t go down easy. liquids sometimes hurt. And heartburn. I’ve taken antacids. Antibiotics. Gas meds. And a liquid coating to help, and it’s like nothing ever helps, the only a quick solution and it’s for maybe a hour is peppermint tums, like this made my surgery a bad decision for me cause there’s times i can go days without eating and just drink liquids, really hope someone can help with some suggestions. Thanks and sorry for the long message lol

@Nicholas203 Hi Nicholas,

sorry to hear you’re having such a terrible time of it right now. I’m just a little past 4 weeks post right now and I can no longer eat what I was eating 2-3 weeks post op. The meal the size of one egg fills me up now. So many things are making me sick with the feeling of dumping syndrome. I don’t have all the symptoms you’ve noted. I have no appetite. I do throw up quite a bit after trying new foods or eating too fast or too much. Dizziness and vomiting and dehydration may be signs of low blood pressure caused by your new stomach.

I wish I had more of an answer for you. I know the Veterans here will have more experience to provide. I really hope you feel better soon and get the medical attention you maybe need. Hope it gets better for you very soon!

I had similar symptoms a while ago and it turned out I had an ulcer. Nausea with vomiting sometimes, heartburn, increased discomfort with eating, yet sometimes eating a little bit helped. I could tell something was not right. I have been on omeprazole with great relief of symptoms, and needed another scope this week. I had to delay that because of my own home isolation (due to COVID symptoms), but have rescheduled the scope for April 30. Hopefully that can still happen, because I don't want to be on the med any longer than necessary.

Anyway, I hope you can get scoped soon so you can know for sure what is going on.
