I am 5 weeks post op and throw up 2-3 times per week. I am miserable, food and Water both make me feel sick. I have tried crystal light, Decaf tea, armour lite, water with lemon, etc. I know that I am not drinking enough or getting my daily Protein. Did anyone else go through this? Suggestions?

Yes! You are not alone! I had a swallow study done to make sure it was not a stricture. It turns out that my pouch was just overly sensitive. The surgeon said this happens sometimes, and can take two months for some people to get over the hump. I was throwing up eight times a day at one point, while on anti-nausea meds 24/7, then it nearly stopped around week seven. I did not get my fluids, Protein, or all of the supplements in until two months out. Everything turned out OK, though. I did not have to be readmitted.

The first thing that felt good to me was chicken broth from Chick-fil-A. Then, chicken or tilapia. Eventually, I was able to tolerate Water and Crystal light again. I found GENEPRO Protein Powder which is the only protein supplement that I can tolerate. When I use it in certain proportions, I cannot taste or smell it. pills were also a trigger for me, so I tried liquid or chewable supplements as much as possible. I also drank apple juice or cranberry juice in the first few weeks since it did not make me sick. I am sure you are already sipping slowly.

Talk with your surgeons office to make sure there is nothing wrong, but hopefully you will get past this soon. It is so difficult, good luck. 😀

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
