  1. Hellooo! So I got sleeved March 30, 2017 and im about 1 month post op. Surgery went well, no complications! Recovery was easier than I expected. No nausea, no vomiting, I was out and about in 1 week. Transitioning to each food stage was easy for me. However, exactly when I hit my one month mark (April 30th)....I started to get real sick. I started to throw up everything I ate or drank. I couldn't hold anything down. I called my surgeon and usually I dont talk to him directly...i talk to his nurse, and they prescribed me some Zofran (which is what I was drinking while recovering). Then I started to puke those as well...let me remind you I had gone back to clear liquids and was taking my liquids in. I then went to the ER since I started to get some chest pain and I was probably on the verge of dehydration. It came to the conclusion I have Pneumonia. Now, the ER doctors prescribed another type of nausea meds called "promethazine" and some antibiotics. The promethazine went in and out (threw them up) and also the levofloxacin (antibiotics). I called my surgeon again since I was really worried about my health and they prescribed me "Promethazine" Suppository which goes in the other end. I still couldn't hold down the antibiotics. I am physically and mentally drained of puking every single thing I eat or drink. I am exhausted and I just want to get better. My surgeon hasn't asked me to go see him or anything. Can someone please give me some advice. I dont know what to do anymore. Im even too tired to think. I dont even know how i got the energy to write this long post. What can i do to hold down the antibiotics????? Anything else to make my nausea better??? Just some general advice??? Please and thank you.

    Sleeve date 3/30/2017

    Thank You so much!!!!! Wonderful advice!!!!! Congrats on your proggresss!!!! And happy Surgversary!
  6. I finally have my surgery date for 3/30/17!!!!!!!!! I am getting the Gastric Sleeve and I am actually excited to get it done. I was leaning towards the Gastric Bypass but I found out I was anemic so it automatically disqualifies me for the gastric bypass. My surgeon then said that the gastric sleeve was the better option for me. Has anyone else has had this problem or similar to it? It would be awesome to get advice of how to have a speedy, manageable recovery, protein shakes..etc. Just in general . Thank you .

    Can someone please tell me reasons why insurance (TriCare) could deny my surgery??? I am cleared both from Psych and Dietitian, since protocols changed I am not required to do the 6 months surpervised diet. There's one thing probably why....I don't have documented weight loss attempts (such as weight watchers...jenny craig...) ...even though I did make several of them! Don't want to lose hope! Super Nervous!!
