We're all here cheering you on - I'm sorry it's taking so long, but you mustn't translate your slow recovery into an assumption that you've made a mistake. You have a new hill to climb, but this one has an end - you will get there!
If you think about
it, if you'd had a hysterectomy you'd expect to feel weak for about
6 weeks and then you only have an empty space to recover from - your stomach has to heal whilst still doing it's daily job of digesting - not an easy task!
This may be about
as much use as a chocolate teapot to someone who's feeling as poorly as you - but I mention it just in case it helps. Morning nausea has always been a big feature of my GERD and is the symptom that drove me to the meds. It got much better once I started taking my ppi about
2 hours before bed. Occasionally I still wake up feeling a bit sick (possibly, I think, if I've slept on my stomach) - I find chewing some DGL knocks it on the head. Have you tried things like ginger tea or peppermint tea - you could keep some in a flask by the bed, ready for the morning (if it is the sort of thing that helps).
Are you still sleeping with the head of the bed raised? (Presume you are, but sometimes the obvious gets overlooked when we're feeling overwhelmed!).
Lastly - can you (or have you) get checked for anaemia? Anaemia slows down healing and makes you feel terribly tired and weary.
Oh - also zinc helps wound healing (some good science around to support that). Maybe you could search for some liquid zinc, or crush a zinc tablet and mix it with a small amount of liquid?
I'm probably not helping......... but I'm trying !!
