Does anyone else have a super gross taste in their mouth and feel like their breath stinks after VSG ? I got sleeved on August 7 and I have to brush my teeth so often because I hate the taste in my mouth and it gives me nausea

That sounds awful!  I had a metallic taste in my mouth after surgery, but I believe it was from the anesthesia.  It wore off within a couple of days.  I wonder what could be causing this since you had surgery a month or so ago?

I’d didn’t have that issue Kattt100, but some people who have weight-loss surgery experience a good amount of reflux afterwards.  Could that be it?  Have you had a follow-up appointment yet?

Yeah, that happened to me and I figured it was due to my mouth being dry all the time.  It took a few weeks before things turned back to normal.  I used ACT Total Care Dry Mouth Mouthwash to make things more bearable.  If it persists I’d check with your doctor just in case there’s something serious going on.
