Morning sickness syndrome after weight loss surgery
by Olga M
The doctor said that morning sickness syndrome after weight loss surgery was very rare, but I have been in the hospital twice with it and am still suffering from the nausea and vomiting.
I have no appetite whatsoever and haven't had since the surgery. I am still unable to drink enough water or protein to feel better and am nowhere near getting enough food to sustain me.
I have lost over 80 pounds since October 4, 2011. I feel so disappointed as the doctors can find no reason for me going through this. They gave me the above name for this, but I can't find any research for it.
I am further disappointed as the doctor who did the surgery is in another city but has an office here, but just literally would not do anything except tell me to go back to Dallas to his hospital so they could handle it. I was in no condition to drive six hours to get to a hospital that wasn't accepted by my insurance.
I was able to find a doctor here that has helped and am very grateful to him.
I feel so disappointed as the surgery that I thought would allow me the energy to feel better has made me so sick instead.
