I was told by my surgeon that I wouldn't be able to burp or vomit as I had a full wrap. That said, I've done both. The burping started in the hospital--small burps that let themselves out.
The vomiting happened when I had bug, and without a bit of notice, I vomited. I didn't know until then if I'd be able to. I was told that it would work it's way out the back door if necessary. Also, I was warned that if I were to get food poisoning I should go to the ER to have my stomach pumped.
I was told (by my fine friends at this forum) to be sure to get anti-nausea script
s right away when I had my surgery, and to bring them with me always. That I do. The only reason I threw up was that I had no warning at all. Once I did, I took anti-nausea meds to stop further episodes.Hi Halloweenbaby,
I'm glad to hear you're getting wrapped. There's no need to go on living with the kind of pain and discomfort you're experiencing.
