My doctor has suggested that I have gastric bypass surgery. I cannot afford the procedure in the United States. My doctor has suggested I go to India for the procedure. Can anyone give me information on doctors and hospitals in Dehli? I also need to know about the hotels in Dehli so I can pick an appropriate lodging for after the surgery. There are organizations here that help to arrange the whole trip but it is sometimes difficult to know who is trustworthy. I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

What does it feel like after the Orbera is placed?

We'd love to hear what to expect from the recovery.
How bad is the initial nausea?
Could you feel it in your stomach?

Please share your helpful info or tips below. And don't forget to write a review about your experience.

Please share your journey with me. I have my procedure scheduled in the next two months and very nervous about the vomiting and Orbera not working for some people. What has worked for you ? And if you have completed the 6 months with the balloon how has it been thereafter? Thank you.

Hi, I'm on day 10 post orbera and to be honest it has been HARD. I can't keep anything down still but I do see improvement because it's taking longer for me to vomit after consuming something. I'm really just doing liquid because the times where I've tried a tiny amount of soft food it's ended up coming back up. I've also lost ten pounds so far, obviously because I'm not getting any food in my system. The nausea for the first week was hell on earth. I wish someone would have prepared me for it cause I was told I could return to work the next day. NOT! I missed an entire week of work! I was so sick, so be prepared for that. Do I regret it tho? Not at all. As crazy as it sounds I love the way this thing works. It makes me not even want to eat because I know the vomiting afterwards is not worth it. I've just been doing smoothies for now and even with those I have to drink then very slowly or they will come back up. Next week I'll introduce more solids. I even have to pace myself with water. I feel like whatever I consume sits on top of the balloon until hours later or until I vomit. I'm optimistic that it'll get better tho, as it has been better each day. I think at this rate I'll be down fifty pounds in no time!! So all in all, just be prepared to have to push through that first week. I don't see how it wouldn't work tho. I guess if your doctor doesn't fill it up all the way? Good luck, I think you'll be fine.

Is anyone still having nausea and vomiting after 2 weeks? I'm now on week 3 and I still can't keep anything down. I don't know what to do at this point. I am not getting anything in my system. I've had to get an IV due to dehydration because water doesnt even stay down. I vomit at least twice a day and barely eat ANYTHING. Down 18 pounds in 17 days but I am exhausted. Any tips?

I'm 7 weeks post and I finally feel normal. I had to use the scopolamine patch in order to feel human up until a few days ago. I realized I felt so much better using it by accident. I brought it to my drs attention and he wrote me a script for it. I was changing it every 3 days. It allowed me to not feel nauseous and I could eat my high protein diet meals as well as my cooked meals. That might be an option for you?

JANUARY 15 - Balloon placement. I felt great coming out of surgery, and was home within an hour of waking up. That's when the cramps started though. They feel like the kind of cramps you get when you're hungry, only a lot worse. Mild nausea all day, but I only threw up once in the evening, some water. Couldn't walk more than 20-30 seconds before being doubled over in pain. Felt sort of hungry, but didn't want to aggravate the nausea, since I'm normally very prone to nausea. (I was using the ear patch, a pill for nausea, and a pill for cramping) Later in the day, I drank 4 ounces of banana milk and 2 ounces of protein shake, as well as eating a cup of yogurt. None of those are clear liquids, but I felt hungry and had no problem keeping them down. August 16 - Didn't sleep well due to the cramps. The cramps felt a little bit better while eating, and worse on an empty stomach. Rough night. Then during the day I still couldn't walk more than 20 seconds so I mostly stayed in bed. Lying on my left side helped the most. Every time I sat up or rolled onto my other side, I could feel the balloon move, like it was sloshing, and punching me in the stomach from the inside. Starting to regret the procedure. However, I successfully kept down another cup of yogurt, and 12 ounces of protein drink, and a small (very small, hard) cookie that I chewed finely (mostly out of curiosity). No nausea and no increase in cramps after eating, so the full-week liquid diet thing doesn't seem necessary at all, and I noticed online that some doctors only require liquids for 2-3 days. Still, enough cramping and feeling of weakness to make me regret the balloon. January 17 - Slept much better, but in the morning, the cramps quickly came back. Again, couldn't walk much. Made the mistake of walking to a store three blocks away and back, and was starting to feel like I would faint from eating only 200 calories or so, and being a little dehydrated. One of my medications (perhaps the ear patch) also makes me a little dizzy and blurs my visions slightly. Nothing too terrible, I can do work if I keep my eyes fixed on the screen and don't look around too fast. I spend the day working from home, still had cramps and couldn't walk far, but not much nausea. During the day I drank some protein shake, and for dinner I had four (half) deviled eggs at a bar where my friends and I hang out every Thursday. Ate the deviled eggs slowly over a period of an hour, but no apparent adverse results. Cramping remained steady, no nausea anymore. January 18 - Day three post-op, and I've weighed myself. I'm down 6.5 lbs, presumably mostly water weight. Slight increase in cramping in the morning. I had to clean the house and that was rough. Five minutes cleaning, ten minutes resting and waiting for stomach pain to subside. Rinse and repeat. By afternoon I was feeling pretty normal, at least as long as I'm not on my feet for more than 10 minutes straight. Had a protein shake with frozen blueberries blended in, and then decided to be more adventurous and have a slice of avocado toast for dinner. (One small slice of toast, very thinly sliced layer of cheese, and then a quarter of an avocado on top with some salt and pepper) I feel a lot better having actual food in my stomach. That was an hour ago, and no increase in cramping thus far (though mild cramping has continued steadily all day) and no nausea. I feel sort of full, but I could possible manage another slice of toast. Tomorrow I'll try scrambled eggs on toast. I hope the balloon will actually work for me. I'm still only eating 200-400 calories a day, but I don't feel especially full anymore now that my stomach is getting used to the balloon, and I seem to be able to eat lots of things, when I'm supposed to still be on liquids. Side note: Why didn't anyone tell me beforehand that you can't really have pasta with Orbera? :'(
