Even though a gastric balloon is not a surgical procedure, you do need to be very careful in the first couple of weeks following balloon insertion.
  1. For the first day or two you may experience nausea but this will pass.
  2. Some unfortunate people may feel queasy for slightly longer than this.
  3. Do persevere - as a Healthier Weight patient you are encouraged to call us at any time for advice and always have the 24 hour emergency helpline number for reassurance out of hours.
  4. You will be give clear instructions on what to eat and drink in the first two weeks.
  5. You will be encouraged to attend the Healthier Weight 8 week weight loss programme to learn new lifestyle tips to maintain your weight loss once the balloon is taken out.
