Are you off all medication now - or could it be a side effect of something you are taking?

Nausea is my main GERD symptom and I control it with chewable licorice and by taking my ppi at night.

I'm sure the experienced members of the wrap club will be along to help too!

I found papaya enzyme helpful for the nausea. You'll probably have to crush the tablets and take with a spoonful of applesauce. May help and I hope this doesn't go on much longer for you.

Hi Baza,
Have you recently increased your diet challenges.  Often at about the time people get off liquid/soft diets and begin to progress toward normal foods, they begin to get some nausea and stomach discomfort.  If that's the case, just back off a bit and baby your stomach until things settle down.
 
Hang in there...7 weeks is still very early in your recovery.  Try to be patient...
It will get better!
 
Best wishes,
Denise

Thankyou Peggy and Denise for your advice! Very much appreciated! I think its eating too much as i have got my appetite back and trying to eat the way i did before.Portion size is hard to guage as it takes a while for my stomach to realize its full.Food is still slow to go through the wrap site as i took a ginger capsule yesterday and within seconds i could feel the ginger hot and burning at the wrap for about 5 minutes.Food can problably get stuck there i think aswell which could maybe cause nausea. Early days yet i think! Barry

Hi Barry,
Sounds like a plan.  Remember that the majority of healing takes 6 months, and healing continues throughout the first year.  I found improvements into the second year.  Hang in there!

Hey Barry, ginger lozenges can help nausea....research has found it to work very much like Reglan. an rx. nausea med. sounds like a volume issue, you are stimulating a nerve tract that goes right to the nausea center of the brain when you over eat and cause high pressures. peace
thankyou,
Bob

Hi Barry,
Once you've had more time to heal, you'll gain all that weight back.  There's really no way to avoid weight loss after this surgery.  You just can't eat enough to maintain or gain weight without discomfort. 
 
Hang in there...if you listen to your stomach you'll heal faster, and it'll be that much sooner you'll be powering down food and gaining that weight right back!
 
Happy healing!
Denise
