Pain Under left Boob ?



Recommended Posts

Is that normal? To have a random sharp pain under my left boob / left side of my chest? I'm 2 weeks out and over the last few days I randomly get this pain. Sometimes when I eat and sometimes even when I'm just sipping fluids. Has anyone else felt this? I am so freaked out over leaks, could this be a sign? I don't have a temperature, so what is everyone's opinions? I'm gonna call my surgeon in the AM but was looking to see what you all think.

Or maybe it is because of my hiatal hernia that was repaired when I had my VSG?

OMG I'm just about 9 months out and get the same pain under my left breast a bit towards the center of my chest (but under the breast). I just don't know what that pain is. My dad said it might be gas I just had it a few minutes ago and it comes and goes. Please let me know what you doctor says...I had a hiatal hernia repair when I had my sleeve surgery.

Will do as soon as I talk to her. I googled it and it comes up as gas, or acid reflux. But being that I just had surgery I don't want to just assume something lol!

If it hurts when you breathe in I'd call your dr and just ask about a blood clot to be on the safe side .

wow... me too. Its not deep pain but its not on the surface (skin) either. Its almost like a sore mucscle.... like I have been working out only the area under my left boob. Is that what you guys have?

I am also two weeks out, and I have the same pain. I called the dr. and he said that I probably have done too much activity and pulled an internal stitch which is located in the abdominal wall. He said to take some pain meds, lay in the fetal position as often as possible to take the pressure off the abdominal wall. I talked to his P.A. today, and she said to keep up the walking and meds. It is common after 2 weeks post opt. hope this helps

I am 5 days post op and I am having stabbing pain in my right breast...not underneath but it feels like it is actually in my breast. I don't think it is gas pain...did anyone speak with their dr about what else it could be? I am thinking of going in for an x-ray to see if a staple came loose...has anyone ever heard of that happening...help

I had gas pains there in the begining! I haven't had any in a while though. My full feeling hits me right between my breast at the bottom of my sternum. Good Luck I hope it goes away soon and it's nothing serious!

I was also experiencing this Saturday. Sunday I took it easy but still folded laundry and then bent over to pick up something and boooom, pain again. I don't work on Mondays and my husband said not to do anything so the only thing I did was go to the mall and walk the upper and lower level for my excerise (it is soo cold here in AL) and he has done everything else. No pain today....I guess I felt good that I forgot that I am on restrictions for a reason. Hopefully if you rest it will get better otherwise call your doctor.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
