I had my bypass on the 23rd of March this year and 3 weeks ago I managed to pick up a virus and couldn’t keep anything in me fluid/food and I was really ill, ended up at A/E on a drip for fluid and really bad pains in my tummy, seems that because I was not keeping anything in me I had a build up of stomach acid even though I had been taking my anti acid tablets, doctors advice was to keep eating to keep acid under control and just let the virus work it way through me. Where as before my bypass I would have been back to normal after a couple of days, this took a good 10 days to go and about another 10 days to get my strength back, I lost 14lbs in those two weeks and put 2 lbs back on as I think the body reacted to loosing all that weight so quickly, seems to have settled down again now.
Hope you are feeling better now.
