I also had the same pains and had a hiatal hernia repair too during surgery. The pain is a result from eating or drinking too fast and gas. The best way to get rid of it is to walk. Walking helps release the pressure built up inside you that is causing that pain under your breast. When I feel it I get on my treadmill and walk about 5 mins and it helps a ton. Also when I started eating slower I don't get it as much. Be sure to eat slow and chew very good.

I’m not a year but 9 months and have started having this. And it’s always after I eat. Once or twice during yoga but not strenuous exercise. As if the stretching irritates it. I do think I notice it from eating too fast but plan on checking with the dr when I have my follow up.

I had the same pain in that area for maybe three weeks post-op and it finally went away, if that helps.

I just had my follow up and they are having me start back on Prilosec then follow up in 3 weeks. They believe it could be acid lower in the digestive system or an ulcer.

So I think it can vary greatly depending on your history and when you had surgery.

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.

I've literally had this my whole life! I always tell people it feels like my lung is being punctured by my rib or something. I have no idea what it is. I assume it is just some kind of a muscle spasm.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
