nauseated every night
I had RNY last month. Every night around 7:30. I get nauseated and have the dry heaves. It last for about 2 1/2 hours. I have tried everything from eating, not eating, drinking something with sugar, drinking water etc. Nothing helps. I even take something for nausea before 7:30 to try to prevent it from happening. It doesn't help. I am starting to regret having the surgery. HELP!!!! — ndgirl1 (posted on June 25, 2012)

Unfortunately I don't have an answer, I had RNY on 06/06/12 and am also starting to regret the decision. I feel nauseated every morning no matter what time I wake up and the feeling always concludes with dry heaves. I just had to post on your question because I too, am looking for some advice or tips on avoiding/dealing with this.

Hello, I am 18 months post op RNY I TOO had nausea all the time for the first 6 months still do from time to time it is normal. Your body is going thru massive changes. Ask your doctor fir some nausea pills. They help a lot . Keep up the fight it is so worth it. I am down over 200 lbs now and have been keeping it off now for over 6 months I try never to break the rules and if I do it's ok we are human just start new on the next meal. Three rules to live by: Journal food Water,water,water Protein first Ohh and never drink while eating this is SO VERY IMPORTANT TO YOUR SUCCESS LONGTERM

I am not near as far out as you - but I have nausea almost non stop. I have found that Reeds Ginger Candy chews ( I just suck on them) help greatly. My son uses ginger for nausea he has for motion sickness - he told me it helped him alot - so I tried them. They are 25 calories each - so I break them in half. One half settles my tummy so I can sleep. Hope this helps.

I had my surgery on June 25, 2012. I have been feeling the same way every evening, I am fine during the day but night I feel sick? It has been every night since my surgery, I am hoping that it goes away pretty soon! Good luck on your journey!

hi, had my surgery on june 11,2012. came thru fine. went back to work, etc.. about a month after the surgery. nauseated hit me. bad. I have been out of work from July 23 thur Sept. 1. Had 2 endoscopes, no problems. finally got 2 different pills. helped alot . AM is bad, wake with bad taste in my mouth, dry heaves. but it is better. I heard 6 months with this. i am trying to eat, vitamins,etc. 60 lbs down and i feel like i cant really enjoy it, because i have been so out of it. ask about meds. I have asked 'why did i do this" , my hubby said, 'why did you do this"... it has been very very hard. i hope and pray we all get past this. amen@@@ mb

Thanks for the advice everyone. Through the process of elimination I found out it was my restless leg medicine making me sick. I had it switched to another one and I am a different person who can eat just about anything with no problems. I hope all of you come out of this bad situation like I did because the surgery is so worth it. Good luck!!!
