Hello everyone, i just had my first dr visit with my surgeon and we went over the procedure and the risks. Now i have been a little nervous about the possible gas pains after surgery. I heard it horrible and its the main thing i am concerned about. I asked the dr if the pain meds he prescibes helps with the pain. He said it will relieve it a little and that i would need to take gax x. i really wanna know what you guys have tried that relieved your pains? and Does the pain meds actually help with gas?

Had no pain, maybe a little discomfort. Walking around the ward helps a lot. No Worries!

Only had bad gas pains for a couple of hours the day after surgery. Just keep moving for it to work itself out.

I'm not gonna lie, gas pains for me were terrible. Every time I would take a drink of anything my chest would get so tight and I'd start freaking out but after a few minutes I'd burp and be fine. My doc let me take prilosec for gas and I walked all the time to try and get rid of it. Everyone's different though, hopefully it won't be so bad for you.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
