Deciding to have a procedure like gastric sleeve surgery takes a certain level of blind faith.
You are not guaranteed that you’re going to lose all of the weight you want.
You are not guaranteed that you’re going to feel great every day.
You are not guaranteed that there won’t be difficulties along the way.
Despite all of that, deciding to have gastric sleeve surgery was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It has changed my life mentally, physically, and emotionally.
However, the experiences after the procedure are going to show you what you’re made of.
Can you handle the dietary restrictions?
Can you drink at least 64oz of water a day?
Can you be consistent in taking your daily vitamins?
Can you push yourself to exercise?
Can you resist eating chips, cake, and ice cream daily?
Can you handle occasional stomach upset?
There are people who have gastric sleeve surgery and experience little difficulties or issues afterward. Their weight quickly falls off and they’re examples of success.
And there’s the rest of us.
The ones who struggle with drinking their water, dread taking their vitamins, and occasionally battle with acid reflux and nausea.
And that’s okay. Just. don’t. give. up.
It will get better.
But I have to tell you, of all the symptoms I experienced after gastric sleeve surgery, the one I hated the most was nausea. I didn’t experience it frequently but when I did, it was epic.
Thanks to my food diary and trial and error, I quickly learned what was causing nausea (and vomiting) so I was able to remedy it. If you’ve had (or will be having) gastric sleeve surgery, please know that your experience may be different than mine.
But, if you’re the kind of person that likes to be prepared and believes that knowledge is power, watch my video. In this clip, I discuss things that can cause nausea after gastric sleeve surgery and what you can do about it.
I hope this video helps at least one of you out there.
