mona-camille Posted April 1, 2008 Report Share Posted April 1, 2008 I tried to graduate to creamy soup on Sunday ( 1 week post op) and after only 3 or 4 sips, I spent the next 3 hours retching! I have never in my life felt so horrible! I don't know what in the heck is wrong with me. This is the 3rd time now since being banded and I am really getting scared. Both other times, I was still in Mexico and went back to the center. First they thought I wasn't drinking enough. The 2nd time, they had no answers. Gave me IV meds and I felt better until Sunday when I tried the soup. I swear, if I would have been in Mexico I would have told them to take the thing out. That is how horrible I felt. It was all dry heaves, nothing came out except maybe 20 pounds of GAS along with a tiny bit of saliva. I couldn't stand up, for as soon as I tried, I started retching again. I tried walking, sipping water. Nothing, except time helped. My hsuband bought me some anti-nausau liquid at the drug store and that finally stopped it. But, then I had to lay down for another 3 hours until I felt better enough to stand up. I have been perfectly fine ever since. However, I am back on clear broth. I know I should call the center, but they didn't know what was going on when I was still there, so they aren't going to know now. It is so strange because it comes on so suddenly and leaves and then I feel perfect. One thing I can say is that after that episode, I finally seem to have ALL the gas out of me that was stuck. (I never got the shoulder gas, it all stayed in my stomach). And now, for the first time, I can feel my port. I never had any pain there either like other gals did. But, now if I move to the left too far, it stabs me. I don't think the band slipped, but if it did, would I know? No-one here will touch me anyway. Has this happened to anyone else? My surgery was March 24th and the first and second episode occurred 2 days after surgery and this 3rd episode was Sunday night - a week later. Could this possible be my body rejecting the lap band? I am so afraid to try creamy soups again now too. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
