    Post op stomach spasms

    Roughly ever 4 hours.. I get the spasms almost every 2 hours after eating
  7. Hey everyone! I am 2 months post op, and I'm having random stomach spasms. They kind of feel like hunger pains... But I'm scared if I eat every time I get them I'm eating too much. They can take my breath away at times.. I've had them since I left the hospital, I just figured they would go away.... Anyone else having this issue?

    I need some advice.. How do you get past the head hunger and craving sweets?! I don't want to blow my success by eating something with sugar in it. I have a family reunion this weekend and I know it's going to hard around all the food... But I know I can do it, just wondering if someone can give me some advice to get through it. Thanks in advance:)

    It is normal... I was sleeved on 8-20 and the pain just went away on 8-30... If I did to much, it came back.. But for the most part it's gone:)

    I was sleeved on 8/20 and tried a piece of turkey yesterday... Just a small piece and chewed it a million times bc I know I'm not supposed to have it... But it was sooo good:-)

    OMG the spasms are horrible!!! I had tried to lay in bed the other night and had to get up because they made my chest sore!!!! I beginning to wonder if it's acid reflux. I have been taking a PPI but I think maybe I will try a tums and see if that helps. Glad to know I am not the only one. Angie, I have started using children's chewable Tylenol... Miracle workers on the spasms... I was actually able to sleep for 6 hours before waking up to a spasm:-)

    I too am having these pains. It wakes me up all hours of the night! Even when I try to nap, I'm lucky to sleep good for 2 hours before the spasms start!
