Repaired Hernias, GAS, what a pain!



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery Aug. 9 and was discharged Wed evening.

I had done my homework, bought the right liquid foods & Vitamins.....but NOBODY told me how painful a repaired hernia would be on top of sleeve recovery. There are times when I try to sip Water (yea, just water) or even take a deep breath and CLINCH, my chest feels like it is in a death grip.:o

Then there have been nights when the gas pain in both stomach and lower intestines was unbearable. It hurt to cry....I think I had good prep on how life will be.....but not for the first week or so after surgery.

Anyone have tips to relieve pain?

I use a heating pad, Gas X chewables, Chamomille tea....

P.S. Stay away from the little laughing cow cheese.....who knew 1 small wedge of soft cheese could create a 24 hr. torture? He got the last laugh on that one.dry.gif

Sorry to hear that your repaired hernia is painful. I had a hiatal hernia too but not as painful as yours. I did get slight discomfort with gas but what really helped me is children suppository. I had gas and well it hurt to push so I used my baby's suppository and whala...The pain dissipated. I hope this helps and you have a quick recovery.

Every food plan is different, mine allowed me to have soft reduced-fat cheese, refried Beans and cottage cheese at day 4 . . . but I've seen others on clears for 10 days.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
