Nausea Two Weeks Post Op -- Gastric Sleeve



Recommended Posts

Hi all. I underwent a gastric sleeve on June 11, 2020. Roughly two weeks post-op and I suffer from nausea. I was prescribed ondansetron hcl and metoclopramide. The nausea is managed but not abated. I welcome any insight or thoughts, including whether I should request other medication or try a natural remedy. Best, Erica.

You'll probably want to start pinning down what is causing it. do you get it after eating/drinking? Or on an empty stomach? I cant see how adding more antiemetics on top of the 2 you already have are going to be anymore effective. It may be acid... you might want to test this by taking Gaviscon or similar to temporarily neutralize the acid and see if it resolves within a few mins.

Not enough info. As Pckeys (above) mentioned, you need to identify the circumstances around the nausea. Do you get it after you eat certain foods or drink certain things? Are you getting it on an empty stomach? Are you getting it after you take your Vitamins? How frequently are you getting it? How long does it last?

Me, I had nausea every time I took my vitamins for the first 2 months or so until I figured out the best time of day for me, with food, and even type/brand of Vitamin.
