    Yes, more heartburn than before surgery. Nausea getting better each day. Started getting better at month 4, now month 6 and even better. Faith is strong. Amitriptyline and Ativan at bed. Prayers to you.

    You may have bile reflux. Maybe ask the doctor if they can prescribe cholestyramine? That would help if that is what is happening. Vomiting every morning is definitely not normal. Do you have any other pain? Yellow eyes? Dark urine?

    Sounds like bile reflux. I would ask doc for the bile sequestrant. Or, try teaspoon of psylium husk powder in water at least 15 minutes before eating. If cholestyramine provides relief, then its definitely bile reflux.

      Good grief. I know it takes a while to get in with these docs at times. I had an appointment in March and am in so much pain too. I called and asked if they had any cancellations and they did and were able to get me in much quicker. Maybe try that too. Will pray for you.

      I called for a cancelation and just started taking pepcid for the reflux and has helped a little but i still have the chills and anxiety and just feel so fatigued all day. Hopefully i can get in sooner.

    Hello, I had my surgery on November 10th. since then, i have had nausea, abdominal pain, chest pain, anxiety, dizziness, bathroom issues and no appetite. essentially, the same symptoms as before the surgery, but not as severe. I went to the surgeon on Wednesday and he wants me to have an endoscopy to see if I have stones blocking a duct, tumors or ulcers. my pain isn't enough to need opioide painkillers, but the other symptoms are worrying. at the moment, I'm having trouble breathing, I'm nauseous and I'm having random pains on both sides of my abdomen. I have a doctor's note excusing me from work for three weeks. I do take medication for anxiety, depression and sleep issues.
