I'm 10 days post op and I feel sharp pain in upper left abdomen right at the incision that took my stomach out. Has anyone experienced this? Normal? I'm applying a heating pad. The pain comes and goes every 30 seconds. TIA

I am 4 days out and have pain around the same place when I drink and eat It is almost like a cross between gas pains and hunger pains. When the pain hits it is followed by some belching. It goes away immediately. I also had a hiatal hernia repair. The Dr. Discovered it during my surgery and went ahead and fixed it. The nurse who called for a follow up assured me it will go away but might take a couple of weeks. I am just wondering if this pain is related more to the hiatal hernia than it is the sleeve?

I also had a hiatal hernia repaired at the time of my sleeve and have the same pain on the upper left side under my chest. It gurst to take a deep breath but just try and push through it. It gets a little better everyday. I am 4 days post op.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
