The pressure is unreal. I have vomited 3 times and still hurt. Wow. I don't think I will need a reminder to not do that again.

OMG that's awful I hope you feel better soon.  I'm almost a week post op so only liquids for me (no pouch overload yet).  Can I ask what type of food was it?  Is it when you introduced something new or you think you just had a little too much?

I tried to eat too much too fast. Learned my lesson....and quick. Threw up at home, on my office parking lot and at my facility parking lot. Pressure is a bit better now. But wow.... Follow what youre NUT says...dont venture out on your own... Lol!

Ok, you don't need to convince me! I am having surgery May 7th, RNY. I HATE to puke cause I always get the dry heaves so no wanna go there! Thanks for the info. Even when it' something like this, it helps to know what not to do. Now watch, I'll go and do the exact same thing. Sigh......

I hate to mention this .. but WHY are you " testing " and STRETCHING  Ur pouch ?!!   Eat onlythe quantity the doc ordered ..and  if he /she failed to tell ya .. look at what Ure Supposed to be eating on HERE .. Its surprisingly LITTLE .. and then U need to WAIT , not eat   and not drink either sometimes .. between meals .. 

We medicate ourselves with excess food .preop ..  we MUST stop that behavior or else regain everything eventually ...

Not "testing" or "stretching".  I said I ate too fast. I know what I did.  And it won't happen again. I know that.
I was simply warning others to not make the same mistake I did.
