Okay I had my surgery July 9th. (I think I am the slowest loser ever!) I have lost 40 pounds, but most of that was before the surgery! People are really noticing it and I have had to get rid of my whole wardrobe! So it mudt be working!! I had no pain with my surgery and never threw up, and other than no energy, I breezed through it. Yesterday I had my first problem! I had a pain in my stomach all day! Right above my belly button! I couldn't eat much all day! I wasn't sure if I was constipated or it could be the gas pain so many of you talk about. I took meds for the constipation and took an extra Pepcid and a Tum last night! Today the pain is gone , but I have zero energy!!! I have no appetite at all and having a hard time getting my Water down! I can't hardly force myself to eat today! Anybody have any helpful ideas? What do u do when u just can't get food down?

Dehydration possibly?

O.o 40lbs in a months a slow loser? Don't say that too loud, there are plenty of people here that would have loved to have done that. Heck, I'm a guy and my 1st mont was 37lbs.

As far as the pain, there are so many variables,

What are you eating?

Are you chewing thoroughly?

What meds are you taking?

Can you describe the pain?

Also, you may already be aware of this, but, don't get in the habit of taking Tums(or any other Calcium based antacid). They are great for immediate temporary relief, but even though they neutralize acid right now, the way they do it sends signals to the body to produce more.

At 1 month out I wouldn't hesitate to call your doctor. If you can't eat or drink like you should, he needs to know.
