3rd Week Post Op, lower belly cramping



Recommended Posts

Morning all,

I'm having my first taste of cramping post op. I just hit my 3rd week today (8/15 Surgery Day). After I had a BM today and did have to slightly push, I'm having alot of lower belly cramping. Is that normal? I haven't experienced this before and its making me nervous, have I pulled something loose in my small intestine. I go for my first post op appointment tomorrow, Ill ask then. But scared today.

Sounds pretty normal. Your brand new stomach trying to figure itself out. But definitely ask so you'll feel better.

As long as they used staples,sutures, etc.; it would be really hard to do any damage. I'm over 11 years out and have never had an issue. In fact, I don't believe I've ever heard of an issue like that. So try not to worry.

My doctors office called they think Im constipated and when I pushed I strained the muscle cause discomfort. They want me to take a stool softener

My Dr put me on stool softener day after surgery. I take 2 a day and I have to say they helped. You do not want to strain. My first BM after surgery was a killer, but once I started with the stool softener it became better. (TMI) sorry

Sounds like a good idea.

Crystal I noticed you are from NC and I live in Raleigh NC and considering DS. I would love to keep up with your experiences and how it goes. I am new at this forum so I'm not sure how this all works. Bev

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
