  1. When I had an ulcer it hurt the entireee time I ate. It did not go away. Every sip/swallow felt like FIRE. I feel like if it was an ulcer, it wouldn't just hurt for the first bite or two. Mine definitely hurt the entire time I ate or drank anything... the entire time.... to the point I stopped eating and drinking entirely. When my gallbladder went to hell it hurt briefly and I vomited a lot. Maybe have an ultrasound of your gallbladder. But even my ultrasound didn't look so terrible... he went in and took it anyways and when he was in there he said it was disgusting and inflamed and terrible, lol.
    Wooooooow thats crazy, well im definitely going to make an appointment to get that checked. I'm so sorry you had to suffer through that

  2. Girl, YES!! I was close to 400pds when I had the surgery, the weight was falling off. Every time I went to a follow up I got worried due to being less than 20+ pounds each time. LOL Good for you!!
    Whew, ok thank you because, I was worried af. I heard the faster you loose the weight the more loose skin you will have as well. Im happy im loosing again because i was stalling for a while but im definitely not looking forward to loose ass skin tbh. U made me feel less worried tho thanks sus.

  3. If you still have your gallbladder, a large percentage of people that have gastric bypass surgery end up with gallbladder problems due to rapid weight loss. I had lost a lot of weight before and I’m pretty certain that’s what did my gallbladder in. It wasn’t until I had RNY and they took my gallbladder out that they found it was chronic inflammation.
    I knew I had an ulcer but no one really believed me until I had the endoscopy, but I still question - how do they know if there are ulcers in the remnant stomach. I had them there prior to surgery. And my gut tells me there’s more to this pain. The hard part is keeping after your doctor until you get answers.

    The first bite i take causes my stomach to hurt for like 30 seconds and then it goes away. This happen at least once or twice a day.

  6. Wait, what? You're only drinking 50 mls of Water a day? I would say 2000 ml is a conservative minimum. Maybe I misunderstood your post. I don't think you're necessarily doing anything wrong except you need more water. Just keep working the program and keep your eyes on the prize. Everyone goes through stalls, and I mean everyone!.

  7. How far post op are you? I just posted a question because I’m 9 months out and having massive stomach pain - just came on suddenly. I was thinking maybe an ulcer but who knows! :(
    The same thing happened to me. This crap came out of nowhere and it hurts like hell. It even brought me to my knees. I thought i was going to pass out. When the pain comes it hurts like hell but then it goes away. Almost like contractions. Does your stomach hurt when you eat or drink?

  8. If you are still having pain, then this was just the first step in tracking it down - abdominal pain is not necessarily from an ulcer. There can also be an ulcer in the remnant stomach which won't show in a normal endoscopy (though the "typical" place for one in a bypass is at the anastomosis between the pouch and intestine,)
    Pain is not normal and is telling you something. Be a squeaky wheel (and a pain to the docs) until they figure it out.
    Good luck....
    Wow thanks for that. Also you .might be right because this pain is still here. He says their is nothing there but i know it has to be something because im the one experiencing the pain.

  9. Sooooooo, i assumed i had a "stomach ulcer" due to the pain i was experiencing. Once i described the problem, my doctor's assistant prescribed me medication. A month later the medicine does nothing. I went back still complaining aboutmy stomach so my doctor requested a Endoscopy. I had the procedure done yesterday (7/19/19) and the doctors said i dont have a Ulcer. (WTF)? In fact he said my stomach looks great. No signs of complications, I didn't stretch my stomach out or anything. He said i look perfectly fine. What the hell..???

  13. Take measurements. i take them once a month: breast, chest (just under the boobs), waist, hips, both thighs, both calves, both upper arms, neck.
    Several times in months I lost less, I lost more inches and vice versa. Its weird, but it helps to know I'm still on the right track.
    Congradulation on lost. Keep up the great work. We are doing so well
