I had my surgery on February 26 and ever since I have been nauseas, no matter if I have eaten or not it's to the point I have been put on Zofran ODT every 8 hours.

I'm wondering if anybody else had this problem and if so what helps I am sick and tired of throwing up!

What does your doctor think is making you so nauseous?  What might help depends on what's causing the problem.

I had the surgery in Mexico so I don't have any contact with the surgeon the doctor I saw out here just said that I had surgery and that it's normal to be sick after surgery but I don't think this is normal.

Does the doctor that told you its normal have much experience with RNY patients?  Because I don't think it is normal.  I'd seek another opinion, either from a bariatric surgeon or a gastrenterologist.  Who is supposed to be doing your follow up in the states?

I was constantly naseous the first 3 months after surgery.  The doctor kept changing my meds but it finally just went away on it's own.  If you are throwing up constantly, then you do need to see a doctor.

Hello!

I had my RNY on February 25th and I was really nauseous when I would walk around too much, wake up in the morning, and pretty much do anything. My surgeon and nurses said that it is normal and not uncommon with RNY. I read a post on here from someone who had it too and they said it magically went away after a few weeks and as of last week, mine is gone! Hang in there. Drink TONS of water 64oz / day and get your protein in and some other foods to help with energy, I think this really helped my nausea go away. 

I also started making it a point to sit down in the morning when I first woke up and NOT brush my teeth but rather slowly sip water and just take deep breaths. This seemed to help at least the morning vomiting.
