Dealing: Postop VSG issues



Recommended Posts

2 weeks post op gastric sleeve. When does it get easier? I’m having trouble getting even half my Water in. Part of me wonders what the hell did I do. I have no hunger at all, to the point where I have to focus my priority to take in a shake and last 2 days I can only do half a shake at a time. And the throwing up heaving seems to be more snd more often. My first post op in on Wednesday but I’m wondering if anyone else has gone through this and when I should expect to be better. I feel like my relationship with food has worsened to being afraid to eat or drink anything . Kinda low right now. Weights coming off, but now I wonder at what cost.

Did they prescribe something for Nausea? Like Zofran (ondansetron)? Are you still on liquids? Did you call your surgery center? This seems like something they need to be aware of. I'm glad you have an appointment tomorrow. I am two weeks out and I have no trouble meeting my liquid and Protein goals. (although I am hungry a lot). If I eat too quickly or too big gulps I have pain, but I'm still on liquids. I really think you need to talk to your surgery center, and definitely focus more on liquids than protein. Sip, sip, sip, all day long. Keep a drink right by you at all times. Try different drinks and different temperatures of liquids.

losing hunger for a few months is very common - I actually liked that and wish mine had never come back, because it was so easy to lose weight when I didn't give a flip about food. The vomiting issue is odd, though - I'd contact your clinic about that.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
