Burning Sensation At Incision



Recommended Posts

Was sleeved on Nov. 18. Here I am, 5 days out and on the left incision, I get a burning sensation every time I move. I've limited my walking because if this. I find myself leaning forward to help relieve that pain which in turn ends up causing my back to hurt. Anyone else had this same feeling?

I have the same feeling except mine is one of the incisions to the right. I also removed bandages today of course strips are left on. I'm worried though. Btw we had our surgery same day.

I was sleeved on the 13th and mine burned and pulled for many days. There is a nasty internal stitch there that has to dissolve. That is where your stomach was removed and there is extra trauma there. Mine still lets me know it is there if I move just right and when I sleep.

Don't let it hinder your walking. Take your meds and then walk.

Good luck to you both!

Let's work through this together! I didn't have bandages. Just derma tape. I'm afraid to touch anything. I have my husband check my incisions everyday to see if they are ok.

Thanks for that. I needed to know I wasn't the only one and to kind of get an idea of how long to expect this.

Ok. Good to hear. Let me ask you a question. I am a school teacher and will not be going back until Dec. 2. My classroom is upstairs. Do you think I will feel this?

I am now 9 weeks out but had the burning sensation from about weeks 2-4. I was told by my surgeon it's all the muscles & nerves healing. The pain was around my largest incision where they removed my stomach from. I had trouble driving comfortably and bending over, but it does go away! Your body has gone through a lot lately & is still healing. Also, just FYI, hold your stomach with a pillow when sneezing, that hurt the worst!

I had revision surgery on 6/15/2020. I have lost a total of only 8 lbs in a month an 1/2. Burning at my incision site. My Dr. Don't repair my lengthened limb. I'm so depressed. When I had my first surgery, I lost 65 lbs. In 2 months! I don't know what's wrong! Anybody else had this experience?
