Topic: RE: Currently hating my decision...
Hey this was me!!!!!
i had my surgery May 15 with a redo on May 16th. I was sooooo sick just like you sooo sick, nothing worked zofran, maxiran etc, nothing. I wanted my life back. Went back in to ER with complication in for another 3 days. Was sooooo dehydrated, nothing worked, couldnt eat, wanted to die.
sound familiar??? lost 25 lbs in the first 2 weeks.
Surgeon said some get sick but it will go. Plan to go back to work at 3 weeks - plan shot.
It's now 4 weeks. so for me it went nauseated everyday for 2 weeks, then 2 good days, then 3 bad, then another two good, day is the 4th good day. I am praying that this trend stays.
Now down 30 lbs.
I think I understand what is now making me nauseous, I tried to eat something hard ( chewed it to death- 1 strip of ginger beef) - sick. It is interesting because the surgeon just told me your stomach is slow to tell you you are full or something was not appropriate yet. He said sometimes it will be uncomfortable or you may start feeling sick if you eat too much (that might mean a teaspoon too much). Well this explains why after a good day, I ate and was sick again in an hour.
One person on the forum called this 'buyers remorse" I thought that was amusing.
as for drinking I lived on tiny sips of half flat icy ginger ale and now on perrier. I am still not hydrated properly but getting there.
I feel for you the nausea was the worst I have every had and nothing helped. Some idiot on the forum had all the answers, but I think time will resolve this, stay strong. The time you are at 14 days and on soft food it will be easier. i am living on goat cheese on ritz, only 2 every 3 hours, soggy cheerios and baked beans.
good luck hang in there!!!!!!
