I'm 6 months post-op. I'm miserable and depressed, because I've been nauseous or throw up at least once every couple days. I don't have sugar in my diet, or carbs, and I take my Vitamins daily , I drink water.. I had to start drinking Protein Shakes again because I'm not hungry for actual food, and yet I'm still sick 98% of the time... I have an appointment with my surgeon next week but they've done blood work twice and it was normal ... [emoji24] This isn't normal and I'm miserable. I cut out everything I thought was making me sick.. and yet I'm still getting sick.. am the only one ?!?! Ugh

In what way does food make you sick? Stomach ache? Cramps? Being nauseous? And in what amounts?

food makes me nauseous. I thought it might have been something I was eating so I drastically changed my diet to zero carbs and zero sugars etc etc. And I'm still getting sick. I'll just feel extremely nauseous, or just get the edge to throw up.

Yea something not right should get endoscopy. I had bypass and no issues unless I try something with real sugar than I feel a little unwell but that's all..

Thank you ! I'm hanging in there. 🙌

I came back on the forums and joined some Facebook groups because I had gotten away from what I was supposed to be doing. I had gotten to the point of not taking my Vitamins, not eating right and drinking more than I should LOL. Trust the system and keep up with these kind of groups. They do help

Just asking because I have my intolerances as well. The RNY is not as forgiving as the MGB.

It can be the food itself, the amount of food and how fast or slow I eat.

Try not to worry, the only thing right now will be to have the endoscopy to find out if you have stricture or ulcers causing nausea and vomiting. I’m a little over a year out now. I’ve been where you are, I had stricture and ulcers at the stoma which is the connection between the pouch and intestine that is too small. They do a balloon dilation to make it easier for food to pass. I had it twice. It’s Ok to take things slow and give your body time to adjust to the changes.

i Can’t say it’s fully resolved but I’m getting more foods now. Though I will always keep to a low carb lifestyle. And be careful of food allergies. I need to have a enteroscopy myself. I deal with nausea a lot. But then I also have chronic illness.

I hope your appointment with the surgeon goes well and that you get the answers that you need.

she's a sleeve patient, though - strictures are pretty rare for them - although I suppose it COULD be... You're right, though - an endoscopy might help them figure out what's going on.

Hi, thank you for commenting . Going through this is rough. Ive learned I'm definitely one of very few, that has experienced any of the difficulties I've encountered since day of. I went to my primary care physician today and they did blood work to check everything they possibly can. The nausea daily, and/or vomiting, has made me depressed. So I'm hoping and praying they can figure out what's going on. I'm sorry you're still dealing with the nausea! Its awful! Thank you again for your kind words!

I’m sorry I didn’t see you had sleeve surgery, but I do believe that stricture can happen with sleeve patients as well. I know it’s discouraging but somehow they will figure it out. For your sake I hope that do. Just keep pushing for answers. Also ask your doctor for a prescription for nausea. I think it’s called Meclizine and comes in a chewable tablet.

i did find this bit of information if it’s helpful :

Sleeve patients can have a stricture anywhere along the length of the stapled stomach. A stricture will almost always occur within the first three months after surgery. Generally, a patient will complain of not being able to advance their diet beyond liquids.”
