Severe Nausea and vomiting



Recommended Posts

Hi. This is my first ever post. I had RNY Gastric Bypass on May 19th, so I'm almost 10 weeks post op and I can't eat. Everything smells and tastes so bad, I can't even get it in my mouth without gagging and throwing up. I'm miserable, weak and so depressed because I can't even do anything with my kids. I can hardly keep Water down most of the time, I've talked to my surgeon and they just keep telling me to eat, but I physically can't. Is anyone else dealing with this or has dealt with this? I'm really regretful at this point. I've already lost 70lbs but I'm just not sure that it's worth it at this point, please someone help me.. advice, your story anything, please.

I'm am so sorry you are dealing with this. While i'm only a week out from surgery i stayed in the hospital till today because my nausea and vomiting were so severe. I would think of certain foods and throw up. food aversion is terrible. My Doctor kept me because throwing up severely isn't normal. Did your doctor prescribe nausea meds? Mine work slightly and reduce my vomiting and retching by about 50% so i can stomach somethings. Also, 70lbs is a lot not sure what your starting weight was but still that's a lot of weight if you are at a lower bmi. My suggestion if you are getting any where with your doctor, go to the hospital you could have a stricture or something going on.

I think you need to go back to your surgeon and keep pushing. If you're not even able to keep liquids down that could be a serious issue. Can you talk to the nutritionist? Can you drink Protein Drinks or any other fluids? Good luck!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
