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 loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
