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?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
