Stomach pain / nausea 9 days post op



Recommended Posts

I’ve been attempting to get my 64OZ of Water in, along with my Protein. However yesterday and today that seemed to be impossible! The Premier Protein shakes are making me feel sick on top of the internal muscle / suture pain I have on my right side I just feel like crying. Please tell me there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Did you Surgon give you anything for nausea? This is weird but try taking a teaspoon of raw oatmeal. Wash it down with Water if it gets too dry in your mouth.
I’m over 3yrs post op. I buy meclizine by the bottle on Amazon & take it about 4-5 times a week.
I always do the oatmeal when I’m at home, but I do the meclizine if I’m out somewhere.
I hate feeling nauseous!

Overall, yes, it gets better as time goes on. But there will be setbacks along the way: days you don't feel as good, days things hurt, days a food doesn't agree with you, etc. On top of that, right now you are still healing and your body is wondering what the heck is going on.

After surgery, I really couldn't stand to drink the Premier Protein drinks. I think it's because I had them so much before surgery. A lot of my taste buds changed after surgery.

Don't forget to drink them exceedingly slow. I only had a couple sips every few minutes. The only time I had pain or nausea was when I drank to fast (and that still happens now). Also, I found that walking helped. I paced the house a lot to get rid of that uncomfortable feeling.

One thing that did make me feel better and allowed me to get the Protein in without the shakes was Soup. I had pho broth with unflavored Protein Powder, or ithe lipton cup of soup (cream of chicken) with unflavored protein.

It will get better! You got this.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
