Good morning!
I was reading people's posts about carrying anti nausea meds with them and I was wondering what those were? That by far is my worst symptom; have some of the typical GERD symptoms this time around (burning in chest and throat, acid in throat, etc) but the nausea...just feel like I want to throw up, get hot and sweaty, feel like I'm going to pass out. I had thought it was relate to diet (fats) but it now just happens (haven't figured out the trigger foods yet). So, I am eating raisin bran, wheat thins, sometimes power bars, and lots of yogurt (which feels like it helps), not really eating meals but sort of "grazing" but...the nausea is awful. I WISH I could throw up as it feels like it would help.

No pain where my GB is, and seem to get the nausea whether or not I've eaten.

My doc does not listen much to me either so am considering the mayo as I wanted to ask about the gastric emptying issue I've been reading about.

But in the meantime, I was wondering about those anti nausea drugs....

thanks for any advice!!

Lila

I had the nissen fund done on 3/1/10 and my Doctor gave me these to take. I find that every morning I am nauseated and I am really tired of it. I can throw up thinking about it, a smell or just because.
I am figuring out from all the other posters that this is common after this surgery, I pray it does go away!!

I got that bad!! Mine was just an effect from the acid coming up. I found chewing gum really helped because the saliva neutralizes acid and keeps you swallowing. I had a bad episode in a store and thought I was going to pass out. I had to sit on the floor. You can talk to your dr about meds. I have 3 different ones. Reglan, Zofran, and Phenergan. I think the Zofran works the best as long as they are the dissolvable tablets and I don't have any side effects from it. Reglan gives me mood swings and anxiety. Phenergan makes me really drowsy. There are OTC antinausea meds too. I have Nauzene which works ok too.

Thank you!!
Will try the zofran.
I have the phenergan suppositories but don't know about the drowsiness, as I took them after the EGD (which as a side note, my doc did with versed only, DO NOT RECOMMEND) so I was pretty drowsy anyway.

will definitely ask about the zofran tho as this sucks. Can TOTALLY relate to having to sit down in a store (walmart) so I didn't pass out.

I like Zofran too.  I chew it to get it to work faster.
 
Beware of Reglan.  It's noted for causing "extrapyramidal effects" - twitches.  I got that after taking it for a couple of months and it took several weeks for them to go away.
 
Actually all of these drugs can cause this type of side effect, especially if taken along with prescription opioid pain meds.  But if you are aware of the side effects you can stop taking them before you have a serious problem.

Hi Michelle, I just sent you a mail mentioning my problem and felt to reply to your post too. I am having exact same problem and I chew gum the whole day to prevent the reflexes. Multiple Doctors have told me that these are just reflexes but the medication hasnt' helped me much, I am feeling thiese strong reflexes for almost a decade now, can you tell me more about what you are doing to stop it ? I am going through all your posts too to understand your medical history and to gain more knowledge

Thanks in advance
