I am falling apart. Started having some extreme stomach pain about 6 weeks ago... kept trying to ignore it thinking it would go away. Everytime i eat... i feel sick.. but i cant throw up. sharp pain when i eat. constant burning pain whether i eat or not. finally going to see the doctor tomorrow.... I dont know what i have done. lil bit scared. this all started after i drank a lil too much wine with friends one night and got very sick... been hurting ever since.... 6 weeks!!!! Anybody else had this happen? any ideas what could be going on??? my best friend who had bypass 5 years ago thinks that i have depleted all the good bacteria from my stomach and that is what is causing it.. but i dont know. I am just miserable right now. Sad

and btw still no clue on those dizzy spells and blackouts... I AM FALLING APART at the seams lately. HELP!

I haven't heard of anyone having these issues. I am so sorry you're going thru this. Please let us know what your doc says. I'm curious of course and I hope they can get to the bottom of it. Please tell your doc that you have checked in with this group and that we all have different surgeons and no one else suffers from this. That should give them something to consider.

Best of luck!!! Let us know how it goes.. I am particularly interested as I , too have a hernia.. well, let me revise that... I have a hernia that became an abdominal rupture.. my whole stomach wall split, the muscles have spread and I am waiting til November before I can have my surgery 1 year past Gastric Bypass)... I dont know anyone else who has had this happen to them, Ive been living with the hernia for about a year and a half and the rupture since Feb. Good luck!!!!!

good luck hon, hope you get better soon, I was having the same problem and it went on for about 2 or whatever months and when I got to the doc he ran all kinds of tests trying to find out if it was a hernia or ulcer or if it was something else, well it wasnt a hernia nor an ulcer it was my gallbladder that was acting up which is normal for people who have GBS. so a wk later they removed it. I still get problems but not like that thank heavens. your in my prayers hon.

thanks. Well we know it isnt my gallbladder... had that taken out about 4 years ago. Sooo nervous about tomorrow. Hoping he can find the problem. He said he wont know for sure if it is a hernia or not until he gets in there. Having exploratory surgery... and if they find the problem he will repair it. Thanks for all the well wishes.... i could use all the prayers and good thoughts i can get. I will update as soon as i can.
