  • I had Gastric Sleeve surgery about 9 weeks ago, and I am still struggling to eat more than 3 or 4 bites of anything.  Liquids make me feel nauseaus.  I have no energy from the lack of nutrition.  I am waiting to get in for a barium swallow test, so they can figure out the problem. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and what if anything was done for it?
