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 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?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      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!
