Feeling in stomach when I am upset



Recommended Posts

I am wondering if I am the only person that feels tightening in their stomach, since they have been sleeved.

It is extremely noticeable and almost feels like my whole stomach is constricted. I do not dare to eat until I calm down and feel my stomach to relax.

It is so strange. It will even happen if I am watching a show that is upsetting. Things that never made my stomach upset cause this feeling. I can not tell what will cause this to occur, but I am learning. I am just curious if anyone else has noticed this.

I know! That's the feeling my skinny friends were talking about! In my opinion my stomach was too big to notice anything. Now that it's a small delicate thing it has to be relaxed to get food in. I love this! Never before I had problems eating and I now love having them and saying that "I am too stressed to have lunch right now".

I actually dealt with this pre-op. My stomach would literally not allow me to eat anything of substance when I was overly stressed or upset.

After being sleeved, nothing has changed. My husband and I can have a huge blow-out argument, or be dealing with a high stress situation with his job, with our son, or with the pregnancy, and I end up only eating mushy food. It's not the comfort foods or junk food, but I really focus on eating yogurt, soft cheese, chili, or Soup just because I know that I'm not going to be able to really eat anything solid for a couple of hours.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
