gastric sleeve 5 yrs later

it is almost 5 yrs ago that i had a gastric sleeve. i have lost 84 lbs and while i eat very little can not seem to lose anymore. most of what i eat i throw up. so i don't understand why i haven't been able to lose another 20lbs.i work very hard at keeping the weight off..i can go up and down within a 4 lb range and that stresses me out.i have developed a hiatal hernia and a sore espophagus from vomitting. help...why cant i get off this plateau and hold in the food i do eat?

Just to clarify - are you throwing up on purpose or are you having problems keeping food down?

I suggest you take these questions to the surgeon that did your surgery or another if he/she is not readily available.

Hope you feel better.

Vomiting with the sleeve is not normal. Have you brought this up with your surgeon when it started? If not, that is where you need to head, now. Not later. If you did, please post what the Dr said.. Again, other than a newbie starting out and eating too fast, or too much, vomiting is NOT NORMAL.

I'm wondering if this poster has any posts on the sleeve forum

I'm behind ProjectJudi...

You're 5 years out... You're vomitting frequently and can barely keep down food, but your main concern in your post is that you can't lose the last 20 pounds?

If you're not kidding, you've got your priorities waaaay out of order.

you made a good point ..never looked at it as being successful. still want to be 'petite'. i have been to doctors about the vomiting....say its cause by having a hiatal hernia. but i guess the fact that i have kept the weight off is a good thing. i just dont understand why even though i eat so little my weight stays the same.and yes i would like to lose another 10 lbs at least.
