I know shoulder pain is associated with the band (gas in the stomach) when can I expect this to go away? I am day 5 post op. Seems to be worse when my tummy growls.

Taking the gasX. And walking. Any other help or suggestions?

Mine took close to a week to go away. I suddenly realized the pain was gone! It would come and go and was pretty severe at times. I took tylenol but don't know if it really helped or not. It did seem to be associated with eating or drinking. Sorry, no words of wisdom.

Hi i am 14 day post up. I experience the same concern u have. At my 7 day post off, I was in more pain this day then i was the day i had surgery. My Dr. Told me it wàs normal and everyone heal at different pace. I can tell u now I feel no pain, not even gas pain. Heating pad helped me a lot. I also did a little more walking that helped.

I wish you all the best...I know you will do exceedingly ànd above all that u can ask 4 for

I had left shoulder pain for a good two weeks; maybe more. The best thing you can do is walk around, but it just has to run its course....however long that is. Even now, more than two years post op, I'll get left shoulder pain if I eat too much, too fast.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
