Uncontrolled Nausea



Recommended Posts

Hi! I am almost a week post op VSG and have extreme nausea! I can’t even stomach Water or my Powerade zero. I have been forcing myself to drink my 2 Fairlife shakes to get my 60 grams of Protein in but that’s all the intake I can tolerate. I might be able to get 20-30 ounces of other Fluid down during the day. I sip slowly like I’m supposed to, sit up when I’m drinking and I’m even taking Zofran once to twice a day but it gives me a terrible headache. Did anyone else have this issue and any advice? And please tell me it goes away soon!

I didn’t have that issue but I wonder if there is another anti nausea Med. I know in the hospital I had a patch that goes behind the ear for nausea and that worked for me. I would call the dr. No need to suffer if there is a medication you can get.

I was given a stomach acid reducer by my surgeon it helped me the most call your Dr I still get nauseous and I’ve check my blood sugar which is usually high as well so maybe blood sugar is part of the issue?

Give your surgeon a call. Headaches can be a side effect of taking zofran. There are other types of anti nausea meds you could try you might have more success with.

Hope you feel better soon.

Call your surgeon's office. You shouldn't still be nauseous from the anesthesia this long after surgery. Something's going on.

I am 3 1/2 months out, and have struggled with nausea/queasiness every day. They say it will get better, but not yet. There ARE meds-ask your doctor! I am on two different ones, and after a couple of months, started taking more of them than prescribed--after looking them up and finding out his dosage was on the low end, and I was not going to poison myself. Call your doc-and be VOCAL!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
