Burning Feeling/pain After Gastric Sleeve Surgery ?

Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve done on November 22nd.

I am doing pretty good with eating. However, my pain is more of a burning pain. Is this normal?

Also, is anyone having trouble sticking with the new eating plan. I can tolerate soft foods, however, to eat the amount required is a little tough.

Everyone has a different full signal. This pain MAY be yours. Are you taking an acid reducer? If not, try one and see if that helps.

Also, it's very hard when you are newly post-op to get in all the requirements (64 oz of Water and 70 g of protein) daily. Work on the liquid first. It's way more important in the first few weeks than the Protein.

Good luck!! :)

It is VERY tough to eat what you are supposed to right after surgery. Hell I am going to be 4 months out tomorrow and I still have trouble some days...just make sure once you are used to getting all of your liquids you really focus on protien!! I can't emphasize it enough....I have been having Hair loss thank God I have thick hair so it isn't that noticable.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
