Sorry you went through that. Good thing you went, I can see where you felt it was gyn related. Hope your recovery goes well. This is a complication we all need to watch for it can happen to anyone, not just WLS peeps, that has had abdominal surgery.

Oh my goodness! What a horrible time you have had. Prayers of healing and good medical care for you!!
HW333--SW 289--GW of 160 5' 11" woman. I only know the way I know & when you ask for input/advice, you'll get the way I've been successful through my surgeon & nutritionist. Please consult your surgeon & nutritionist for how to do it their way. Biggest regret? Not doing this 10 years ago! Every day is better than the day before...and it was a pretty great day!
I've been there too-- at 6 months out I had symptoms of vomiting/pain off and on. Then it wouldn't stop. I called my surgeon, who on the basis of the symptoms, sent me to the ER where I met a different surgeon. At midnight, I had surgery. Turns out that our surgery allows the bowel and intestines to push up into the area where they reroute the intestines to meet the new pouch. According to my surgeon, I was minutes from losing large pieces of my intestines. I had the hernia repair, bowel surgery on August 30 at midnight. Doing fine now and find that I have no nausea or vomiting! Apparently being constipated can accelerate the formation of the hernia, so watch that you drink enough water. I add benefiber to my coffee and make sure I eat at least one fiberful vegetable or fruit a day. This is a real problem and can reoccur. Be healthy. And make sure you take it easy for the next weeks and months so you can heal.
