my daughter has had an operation for gastric sleeve, which has turned into more operations. she has had to have a full gastric bypass. She hasn't been able to keep food down or water. she is constantly dehydrated and in an out of the hospital. The doctor doesn't know what is wrong. What can we do? Her life is over, she is in the house sick, in pain and is about to give up on trying to find out what is wrong. She has become very depressed. I am very worried. The hospital has treated her badly, the doctor is always gone and there is usually his helper who doesn't know what to do. She is always waiting for the doctor to help her. Please if you know anything that can help her, she is giving up. She says she is going to die.

I am having the gastric sleeve surgery tomorrow around 10:30 am. I had a lot to get done before prepping for surgery and my friend gave me a vyvanse which I took yesterday at about 8am not even thinking it could affect my surgery. will it? and if so how can I tell the anesthesiologist without drawing attention and everyone knowing especially my insurance company?

Hi, my husband had a gastric sleeve operation 6-10 months ago. He s had no problems until last week, when he started experiencing pain (on a scale of 1-10, a 7). The pain is in the belly button area . The pain is constant, like a toothache he says. It lessens when he lies down, and when he doesn t eat. Pain comes back upon sitting or standing, and after eating anything. He s gotten an upper GI, and nothing so far. He s getting a CT scan next week of his abdomen and pelvic area. What could this be?

Hi. My 18 year old daughter had gastric sleeve surgery on June 28th this year and has had complications where there was a pouch formation that caused nausea and vomiting. She had a gastroscopy where the surgeon opened the stomach with a balloon, but 2 - 3 weeks down the track she s still not eating much at all and not losing any weight after the initial loss at the start. She is now in the process of having bariatric rehab but in the meantime, my daughter is depressed and thinking that life is not worth living anymore and my husband and I are depressed, wondering whether this will improve for her. Can you tell me if you know that her situation will eventually improve. I feel that we are sitting her waiting and waiting. Thank you. Rosie
