I am 5 weeks out today from being sleeved.
My first 2 wees were hell. I couldn't eat or drink, nothing would stay down and I would vomit bile for 5-6 hours at a time. Ended up in ER 5 times in 2 weeks. No doctor would listen to me when I said I had severe acid reflux and gastritis, until I finally threatened a lawsuit on the surgeon. Finally got my vomitting under control and started to eat very little amounts of food. Recently, I find that if I eat more than 1-2 Tbsp of food it comes back up. I have no issues getting my water in, I can drink 3 glasses in an hour and it stays. But food just does not want to.
Yesterday I spent 12 hours in the ER on pain meds and fluids for a kidney stone and kidney infection. They showed concern over my gall bladder too, asking why the surgeon did not remove it during surgery. I had no answer, because I had requested that the gallbladder be removed. Now I have yet another specialist that I need to see to get a biopsy on my kidney.
I barely ate anything today, because I am afraid it won't stay down.
What can I do? My clinical doctor says I am losing weight way too fast for the sleeve. at my last weigh in I was down 42 lbs in 3.5 weeks. That is wil minimal walking, as I am exhausted all the time, and have to walk in areas with places for me to sit.
I'm getting very frustrated, and concerned for my health, but again, it doesn't seem like the medical system is going to help me. What am I to do?
