Went to work today for the first time day 6. Feel ache on left side like I did crunches only on that side. Does that sound normal?

I have had pains like that too. Sometimes my left sometimes my rt. Gas?

I am one week post-op today! Everything has gone really well, thank goodness.

My gas pain wasn't especially bad until the last 2 days (you would think it would get better). I have been living on gasx and the heating pad. Please tell me it subsides soon.

Down 12 lbs since my pre-op diet! Pretty darn excited about that!

Day 2 - The pain in my shoulder is killing me. I have walked laps around my house, swinging my left arm and beating on my chest trying to get it loose. Help with ideas please

I experienced the same thing with the gas. It wasn't so bad the first few days, but then it got rough! It did go away for me, but I am still carrying around the Gas-x strips in case I need them!

Congratulations on your progress! Keep up the good work!
