5 months pregnant and upper abdominal pain



Recommended Posts

Hello...I'm 2 yrs post gastric bypass and 5 months pregnant and have been having some bad upper abdominal pain that starts right under the center if my breasts and radiates on both sides...I've been to ER twice and both times they found nothing ....the last time he gave me Maalox and said possible Gerd or ulcer ....I have an appt with ob tomorrow. ..I mentioned it at my last appt because it had happened one time prior and she said everything looked good not to worry but now it's happened at least 7 times and it gets bad but then goes away ...any ideas???

Hello:

Have you had your gallbladder checked? I hope whatever it is that it goes away. Please let us know what the doctor says.

Good luck!

I am not pregnant but have had those terrible pains as well. It's gas. Gas some how makes it back up to your pouch but for some reason gets stuck. For me I could drink but the pain was still there. So what I have realized is that the more you move around the less often it happens. Both times it happened to me I had been sitting a lot that day. Alot of the foods we eat after surgery ate Protein and with protein comes gas... I use the strip that dissolve in you mouth, and drink Water with them. Maalox works the fastest for relief, and the chewable tablets are good to eat after you know you've eaten something that had a lot of protein in it, mainly dairy based. Hope this was helpful. :)

I have seen people as early as 1 month out after surgery and preg and ok preg but sometimes it could just be too early to see if your looking for baby you need to see the yolk and sac first

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

        You're not going to believe the difference. It's just so amazing to not be hungry all freakin' day long!

        Best of luck!

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL
