|Me and my mom|
So, I am three weeks post-op today from my band relocation. Is that what they call it? Who knows.
I have been struggling to eat and even drink most of the time. I saw the doctor on Monday morning and she thinks I should be taking the anti-nausea meds (Zofran) still (even though they make me nauseated) and have another upper GI if things don't get better.
Monday & yesterday were frustrating, so I reluctantly took the anti-nausea meds today and I, amazingly, actually feel pretty good. I had Taco Bell pintos & cheese for lunch with only one little bout of nausea as I was eating. It took about two hours after I took the meds to get there, but I have even been able to drink water pretty normally. I think I will even try to eat something for dinner tonight. I had been sticking to liquids at night.
I know it seems like, "duh, what the hell is wrong with you?" on the medication issue, but I legitimately thought that the problem was that my band was too tight for food, not that the nausea was the problem. But since today has been a pretty good day, I am reevaluating my position.
Have any of you ever taken Zofran? Do you think I should only take it when I am nauseated or should I take it every 12 hours as a preventative measure to avoid the nausea? I ask because the pharmacist said it works really well for a couple of weeks and then it doesn't work so well. I can't imagine I will still need it in a couple of weeks, but who knows.
