Trixiemom, I have been waiting on an update from you. So glad to hear from you.
I also did wonderful on day 1 and 2, but started vomiting on day 3. It was terrible. I could not sleep laying down and had to stand up every 20 minutes or so because my intestines were so swollen and full of stomach bile that my stomach contents would come up. It was 4 days of constant nausea and vomiting, but when my stoma started having output, I filled bag after bag. It was several liters that must of been stuck inside of my intestines because when it started moving out, I started feeling better. My doctor didn't even mention an ng tube until day 5, and when he mentioned this, I never threw up again.
I was terrified of the ng tube.
Wow, they never stuck a tube into my stoma.
Did this help you with the vomiting?
Just hang in there and go very slow as they advance your diet. I was in the hospital for 7 days and was not allowed anything until day 6 and that was broth and juice, only clear liquids. When my stoma started producing, I improved rapidly.
Call me if you feel up to it. I am off work all week for Thanksgiving. YIPPEE
