Hi,
Welcome to Ja and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually, after a gastric sleeve procedure, you MAY experience symptoms of this sort for the first week to ten days however sometimes the symptoms may persist for longer, up to a month or so. If however, you develop vomiting which is not subsiding or if you start to throw up blood OR if you develop severe abdominal pain then you will have to go back into the doctor's office or even the ER in that situation. Right now if you are on drugs like omeprazole then take an extra dose of 20 mg, if you are not on these drugs then start using OTC Prilosec at a dose of 20 mg once daily which should help with the symptoms.

But these symptoms are TO BE EXPECTED after a gastric sleeve procedure, only if you develop the above symptoms would you need to go back to the doctor's office or the ER.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
