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.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
