Headaches after Bypass Surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone - I wanted to reach out and ask if anyone have headaches after the bypass. I have these headaches that last for 3 days at a time and not sure if it is due to the amount of food we are supposed to eat or the Water we are supposed to drink. What can you take besides tylenol because that doesn't always help.
Thanks,
Lisa

my dr said when i get headaches and feel dizzy, its time to adjust the meds im on. Im only taking Lisinorpil, and on my 1st follow up today, my blood pressure was "normal" and he warned me to contact my primary when i feel this way.

Regular Water is really acidic. If it's bothering your stomach, try switching to alkaline Water. You can find it in the stores. Smart water makes it, its in the black bottle. There are other companies as well. It is more expensive than Regular water but it is let acidic and will not hurt your stomach. You can sometimes find it in the gallon jugs as well. If this is an ongoing issue with your stomach and water, you can find pH drops on Amazon and add them to your regular water and do it that way. It's a lot cheaper in the long run.

Water is not acidic at all: Pure water has a pH of 7 and is considered “neutral” because it has neither acidic nor basic qualities.

Alkaline water is a marketing scam. Your body is EXTREMELY good at maintaining homeostasis, and if you have an acid/base issue, you would almost certainly be in the hospital.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      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.
