HELP :-( —- I am exactly 7 days post op from having LINX procedure and hiatal hernia repair. I have nausea most of the day, and I am having to MAKE myself eat jello & yogurt, & I can only seem to tolerate warm beverages. Doctor prescribed me Zofran 8mg for nausea and it doesn’t help the nausea any. And let me just say my “honeymoon phase” lasted about
a DAY OR TWO....???My discharge papers said the dysphasia phase is at 3-8 weeks post op. I think I’m having that phase NOW at day 7! I cannot eat or drink without feeling nauseous. Am I jumping to conclusions since I am only 7 days out? Whenever I feel like I am hungry and able to eat, it just backfires because I feel like I can’t swallow my food and I get hiccups BAAAAD and my mouth salivates and I spit up what looks like just clear liquid, probably my saliva??? I’m soooooo miserable! I go into complete panic mode when I can’t get food to go down. My son constantly asks if he needs to call 911. Maybe he does!! Ha . All joking aside, SOMEBODY TELL ME , will this get better? Bc I am DYING over here! I go back to see my surgeon on next Thursday, 11-1-18 and I am so scared of him having to go back in..... we will see! Meanwhile I am writing down all I am feeling so that I will cover everything with him, and go from there....
This is NOT the way I want to lose weight. I feel like I need to go buy some Ensure because I am getting zero nutrition right now. I’m so concerned.....
Thanks for any help you could give!
Chad, I did read that your doctor had to go back in and dilate? I am freaking out for real.
*** I also wanted to mention to all of you considering this surgery, do not, I repeat, I DO NOT advise you to eat bread. I made that mistake, not thinking and took a bite of a cinnamon roll - and thought I was going to meet my maker afterwards. I highly advise to stay FAR, FAR AWAY from bread.
Thanks for listening everyone!!
