Yep, I have it if I move too much. It really hurts! I think it's just part of the healing process. My surgery was 12/1 so I'm only a week out. Right now I am being careful and doing all I can to avoid that feeling! I'm sure it will go away soon for both of us!

Ya my Dr emailed me and said that it was part of the healing and try not to move alot or twist and said to use warm towels or heating pad.
Congrats on your sleeve, im feeling pretty good other then that just seem to get full on my liquids fast, like if I take 1 more sip I can feel it coming back up like I am totally filled up
Do you do that??

No, I haven't felt hungry or full at all. If I take a big swallow of something, it hurts a little, but that's about all I feel in there at all. I keep forgetting to drink stuff, so I'll go all day without much of anything then have to cram it all in before I go to bed. I'm pretty sleepy, probably because I'm not eating enough. I'm working on it more today, and I have told my Mom and husband to nag me. I know the weight will come off, but it's discouraging to be the same weight after a week. But we're going to do it! You and I will be thin one day!

I have a feeling like my liquids are going down an hour glass. I take some sips and then it seems to "get stuck" then frees up. I have asked the nurse about it and they don't seem to give me any response. My sleeve was done 11/30 and from my pre-op weight I am down 22 lbs in just 2 weeks. I am scared that I am losing too fast! I can't wait to get some real foods in me as my stomach growls all the time!! Just can't seem to get enough liquids in during the day though.

I think it's great you're down 22 pounds! I lost 16 on the liver shrinking diet, and have not lost any more since surgery on December 1. It's a little discouraging, but I'm hanging in there. My stomach gurgles and growls all the time, too, but I am definitely not hungry. Trying very hard to drink enough water - only about 24 ounces a day and I know I'm supposed to drink twice that. Let's stay in touch - it's nice to talk to someone who had surgery almost the same day I did!

I also had Surgery 11/30 and have left side pain. It seems the more I walk the better it is . Since surgery I have lost 13 pounds . I think it has alot to do with how much you have to loss to start with . My main post op problems have been migraine headache and gas pains . I have lost 13 pounds since surgery. It took me 6 months to loss 14 pounds pre-op and I loss 13 in 8 days boy am I loving my sleeve.
