8mths post-op issues?



Recommended Posts

hey bari-team!

i'm about 8 months post-op (march 9, 2021) and i've run into a little problem the last couple of days.

so i've completely regressed... essentially feeling about food/liquid like i did in the immediate post-op. all hunger is gone, and when i do eat i can't keep anything down. i'm trying a Protein Shake today, but even liquids are making me feel gross.

before the last couple of days, i haven't had any issues with food/liquid intake, except for the occasional over-eating, so this is really unexpected.

has anyone experienced something similar this long after surgery?

Yes! This has happened to me also. For me it was usually after a procedure, when the seasons changed (too hot to eat) or just not really hungry.

But your nausea maybe a sign something else is going on like food intolerance or stomach bug. I would reach out to my team if it lasts longer than normal.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
