samballina :  looking around it looks like it could be dehydration or vit deficiency, ask your GP to run your bloods xx

I had gastric bypass with no complications, but I know of people that have had issues.

What does you surgeon say?  Obviously, something is not right, and I would not let the doctor disregard your concerns.

Are you able to keep liquids down so you can get your protein through shakes until they figure it out?  Without protein, your body will have a hard time healing.

You might have a stricture which needs to be dilated. 

Good luck and keep us posted.

I had a gastric sleeve, which is the first part of the bypass. (The stomach cutting part) my mum also had this done and she kept having to go back to liquids/thin purée. She was on that for about 10 weeks. You may just have to keep going back to that. I had no issues with mine and I stayed on liquids for 4 weeks and went on to chunky things. Speak with your surgeon and dietician and go very slow. Good luck! It’s been the best thing I have ever done, I’ve lost around 52kg, which is 114lbs

samballina :  My friend had this done 4 months ago. I will say she drabk a lot of protien shakes only because thats was the only way to get protien in her body.  Are your portions small? How is your water intake?

My mom went through this surgery recently and in the information paper it says that you have to be 2 weeks in liquid diet but some patients may need to be on it for 3 weeks . And then start the puree diet , try some foods and if you throw up , try again in 24-48 hours ,  you have to be very strict in the diet they gave and only eat the brand, food and preparations they tell you . And is very important to drink i believe 1 l or 2 l of liquid every day by small amounts . My suggestion are only feom my experience , the most important will be to consult whit the clinic where you got the sugery , and also find a support group in your city for people with this surgery , my mom has her surgery done in mexico ( we live in canada) and the support group has help her alot .
