Got sleeved yesterday. So jealous of you folks that didn't get gas pains. As soon as I woke up in recovery I had then. worst pain I have ever had in my life. I was regretting my decision to have this surgery until this morning. Still some discomfort but better. Haven't drank anything for 40 hours so sure would like to do that. Could care less about eating or sipping broth.< /p>

I had mine on Monday, gas pains still have them. Remember to only sip 2 oz at a time when you start..try to space it out every 15 -20 min. That pain of over full by one extra spoonful of liquid is terrible.

Hi all i, m having my sleeve op on Monday 19th aug too, really scared but excited too, I have been on a 10 day milk and yoghurt pre op diet, its tough but only 2 days left and i, ve lost 10 lb in 8 days!! I will never eat jelly/ Jello again lol, I was advised by my cousin who had the sleeve 2 yrs ago to take windeze tablets to take after the op and to walk as this will ease it. She has lost 9 stone in 2 yrs I have 8 stone to lose after this pre op diet, want to wish everyone having it the same day goodluck from here in the uk :-D

I was sleeved on the 14th. Same issue as you. I even got a muscle spasm from the abdominal wall where they stitched internally. So between that & gas pain I was screaming less than 24 hrs post op. Thankfully the MD knew exactly what was wrong & started me in muscle relaxer. Now I'm just trying to work out the gas pains. Trying to figure out all the fluids too is mind boggling. I'm taking it 1 day at a time!!

Very similar experience and sleeved on the same day. All I can say is walk, walk, walk, sip slow. I still get gas pain in my chest but not as bad as it once was. Thought I was having a heart attack when I woke up in the recovery room.

I saw where some people take gas-x.... Has anyone tried this and does it help?

I used the strips in the hospital... It helped me. My gas pains were not that terrible -- like bad menstrual cramps that went away (mostly) after 2.5 days.

I had surgery thursday and oh boy i was sooo bad yesterday, i guess it was a combination of buyer's remorse, gas pains, hunger, and the anesthesia effect but i was not a happy camper. Today thats another story, i slept all night, had my Protein Shake in the morning and some liquids as well,i also found energy to shower! Im soo much better not in a lot of pain and also im more comfortable with my decision of having the sleeve done. My mom has been a great help with my boys but my husband has been a little too distant and busy outside of the home, i guess he cant deal with seeing myself in pain but i resent his decision of going to work instead of staying with me :( o well I'm sure its just my emotions that are all over the place!

I had surgery on Wednesday and I had the worst dry heaves I had ever had last all day, and oh so nauseous, thought I did something to my sleeve. it all got better on Friday after I told them I did not want the anti nauseous medicine don't know if that was it or not but as soon as they stopped giving it to me I felt a lot better. Now I just pain up under my left breast. Very hard getting in and out if bed at home might sleep in a recliner tonight.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
