Feeling terrible!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I have been taking the tablets for 3 weeks and until now have felt fine with no side effects. :o

I have been so good and haven't eaten anything to my knowledge that has been really high in fat. (except the cherry bakewell in week 1!!)

However yesterday and today i have been feeling awful. I've had constant stomach pains and been feeling sick. This morn had my first accident luckily at home but still feel rough! :oops:

Im wondering whether to leave them off for a day or so??? my belly feels swollen too. I have lost 8lbs which is gr8 but im now soo scared incase this happens again. :cry:

The only new thing i have eaten is salmon, i had it with roasted veg which i thought was ok??? :?

Gotta go to a tapas bar for my friends 30th tomorrow eve and at work at 0615 the following day at altitude where i have an assesment flight!!! Do you think i would be wise to leave the blueys off??

Please help

    I've found that salmon is fine as long as I don't have anything with just granary bread.... I've never had an accident but knew I'd had if you know what I mean. :oops:

    It can be very easy to blame the tablets for any unusual feelings so if your certain you've not had anything wrong it may be that you've picked up a bit of a tummy bug sad

    I would have thought it unlikely to be a side effect of the tablets after this long but if you've any concerns contact your GP.

    As for the assesment flight I think if it were me I leave thetablets for the day just to be sure and start again afterwards... the last thing you need is to worrying about the loo! :shock:

    Hey Kaz,

    How big was your portion of salmon?

    Salmon is high in Good Fat but as you know the tabs can't tell the difference between good and bad fat :!: The guy from Xenical MAP said a portion of salmon should fit in the palm of your hand :!: So maybe you over did the portion without realising or it could be as Twinkly said and you've just got a bit of an upset tum.

    Either way, I think it's good advice to leave off tabs for the day of your assessment. Good Luck :!: :D

    TTFN kal :wink:

    Hi Kaz :lol:

    Definately stay away from the salmon (especially if its a monster lol) Xenical folk told me to make it 'half' the size of your palm as its full of good fat but the tabs cant distinguish!!

    Its all trial & error girls :lol:

    I would definitely lay off the blueys for the tapas - tapas kill my stomach even without them!! Good luck on your assessment flight!
