I just had sleeve gastrectomy completed on 7/1/2021. I am having the hardest time getting anything to stay down. I vomit when I take my Vitamins, when I drink Protein, when I eat baby food, when I eat or drink anything even Water. I cannot get my ounces in for liquids or Protein. I need some guidance. The acid reflux has been the worst part. My surgeon has switched my medications to try and get the acid under control. I just need support because I am not sure how long this miserable part lasts and I am over it. Nothing good is easy and I am not a whiner, but this is pretty tough...

Hope everything gets better..I know you said you spoke to your Surgeon. Is it possible maybe there is a leak. Did you ask him that or maybe next time bring that up as a concern

you too! I'm about to leave for the hospital!


How are you feeling? I had my surgery early morning the sedation had me in and out all day. The gas pain was real thankfully the doctor ordered something for it.

Day 2 post-op: starting to feel better now. Because right after surgery and day 1 post-op, I was like « what have I done? », the pain and nausea were so bad! I guess you have to take it one day at a time. Leaving the hospital in 1 hour, happy this step is behind me. On to the next step! Courage to all of you out there

Still here at the hospital, no pain at all! I'm shocked honestly. The worst part for me is the nausea and throwing up. I can't keep anything down. The doctor won't let me leave without keeping stuff down

I came home yesterday afternoon. The problem I’m having is the gas pains and gas x isn’t helping. It makes it hard to get fluids down cause it hurts. Otherwise I’m just sore around my stomach. The nurses didn’t give you a nausea patch before surgery?

I just lost my balance and fell on my left hand. Hand swelled, left side of back I probably pulled several muscles.

also, I have some sort of stress rash right around my belly button.

oh what fun!

I cheated on my pre-op diet. My diet was supposed to be milk and yoghurts and I started really struggling to stomach it so I just started skipping ‘meals’ and some days I’ve not had much at all. Today, I just felt really weak after my pre-admission blood tests so I’ve had a packet of super noodles. I feel terrible and with my op only being two days away I’m worried that they won’t even operate on me anymore.

I had to start my preop liquid diet this past Wednesday and surgery was Friday. I cheated too I had some crackers, I was getting a Migraine and didn’t want to take the meds on empty stomach and ate a few crackers Thursday. I still had my surgery on Friday and no issues except this gas pain crap. You will be ok don’t be so hard on yourself. Many people cheat on their preop diets I’m sure the surgeons know patients will cheat a little. Take a deep breath and don’t stress

Hi. Don’t be so hard on your self. I cheated too and I’m sure a lot of others have too. If you look up other programs, they all do things differently. Try to stick to your plan but don’t be negative. No one is perfect.

I’m New here! 😊 I have definitely been having a hard time on this preop liquid diet. I have also cheated a few times. My surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday August 4th. I can’t have anything else but liquids not like some other people that can have a small meal ☹️. I’m trying to hang in there tho!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
