    Hi Tiff, well the scope showed everything is normal, no ulcer, no stricture, nothing, which is good, but doesn't explain why I feel so full all the time. They did have to give me fluids through the IV because I was dehydrated. UGH! I always told myself I wouldn't let that happen.

    I now carry TUMS with me even though it is only gives me temporary relief. I have been conversing with some others and others have had problems with never feeling hungry either, so I guess it could be common. Some suggested that I chew on ice instead of just drinking water....think I might have to try that. I have gotten down about 20 ounces thus far this morning, so doing better than before.

    Hi Tiff, well now it is my turn....going to the surgeon tomorrow because I am unable to eat or drink without severe uncomfortable bloating and extensive feeling of fullness...even with just a sip of water. It's pretty bad and I can tell it is getting worse and fast. They said for me to be prepared to have a scope done. A nurse friend of mine said it sounds like an ulcer. Another friend of mine who had the surgery same day, same surgeon got an ulcer but she brought it on herself...she had some cigarettes with her friends. I have followed all the rules so if I got an ulcer that really sucks! I'll let you know what happens.

    Yes I had a couple of blockage's in my bowels & a hernia and ulcer most of the issues I had came from I was still smoking. I have had to 3 other surgeries since the gastric bypass to fix those things.... But it was my fault since I was still smoking..
