Hi,

I am four weeks out and feel sick all the time. I have never gotten in my liquids or Proteins because everytime I drink or eat I get a cramping in my stomach. The thought of more Protein Shakes make me nauseous. At this point I cant stand anything with a sweet taste. My stomach really cramps at night. I have had problems w constipation but now take Miralax. I had gone to the er for fluids last week also. I'm really trying not to regret this surgery but I'm sick of feeling like this!!! Can anyone provide any insight?

I would say a majority of us struggle with constipation, so that part is normal, but the rest of this isn't. Dehydration can make you feel like crap (and can also contribute to the constipation), so part of it may be due to that. Have you called your surgeon? Having stomach cramps to the point where you can't eat or drink doesn't sound normal - I would call and see what they say.

The Protein Shakes might be part of the issue.

switch to something more easy for the stomach, never mind the Protein. Youghurt (try lactose free), banana, watermelon etc and see.

Also make an appt with your doctor about this. We are not medics, just a bunch of people with experience.

I have read that some people develop an intolerance to dairy after surgery. That might be the problem, but I agree with catwoman - I would definitely call the surgeon's office and get professional advice.

I have called my surgeon and I am scheduled for gi testing Monday afternoon. They said all of the cramping and pain isnt normal so we will see. Thanks for the advice.
