Hello :) I'm 3 weeks post op sleeve revision to bypass. I don't feel any restriction and am able to get in all my Protein. On to pureed and yesterday I tried some pureed chili and have felt awful since. I am very nauseated. I don't think it's the chili anymore but perhaps I'm moving too quickly to pureed foods. With the sleeve, I could tell right away if I was full. With bypass, I'm not feeling restriction so it's difficult. I have been weighing and tracking everything. I'm hoping once I'm healed I will feel some restriction. I'm not getting in 64oz of Fluid and I'm wondering if this could be the issue. Why are we so dehydrated after WLS? UGH. I love bypass as I had complications with the sleeve right out of surgery. Is there anything I can do for this nausea? I have read some older posts that the 3 week mark tends to be like this but improves around 6 to 8 weeks. I hope so cause I feel pukey. TIA ❤️

My surgeon gave me ondansetron sublingual pills, and many refills. I didn't need it but it was nice having it available if I did. I needed it when I had my VSG but not for the revision. It worked within minutes back then. Perhaps you can give your team a call and see if they can give that to you. As far as restriction, I felt it as soon as I went to solids.

Yes, I was also prescribed Ondansetron sublingual (brand name is Zofran). I only needed it the first few days (I had sleeve), but I was very glad to have it. Also, the chili might not have sat well. Good luck!

It won't help in the long term, but sniffing rubbing alcohol will help nausea subside immediately. It is weird, but it works!

I also was given ondansetron and took them the first two-three days. They also put a seasickness patch behind my right ear before surgery that lasted 72 hours. I believe you can buy them over the counter.

I do this with the old-school high octane amber colored Listerine and it also works very well.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
