I had bypass on Wednesday. Yay! I'm struggling with gas pains. I keep walking, taking small sips, and using gas-x strips. I can't pass any gas. Anyone have some more ideas for me? My helpful hubby said I should just put a pin in my stomach to see if I'll just take off like a balloon. Lol

I had surgery Monday and was struggling with the gas pains but most people said it lasts about 3-5 days and the pressure started to go away yesterday and it made a world of a difference today. I tried the remedies you did but I think it's a matter of running it's course.

Oh I struggled with that too. Just walk and GasX, but once the problem started relieving itself (if you know what I mean!), Well I was getting dirty looks from the cat!!! Oh but it felt so good! Good Luck to you!

Hi LosinToWin. I love your user name! Great way to remember your goals. As for the gas pains, you are doing the right thing. If I would have known how awful the gas pains were going to be after surgery I would not have had the surgery. That is not really true but that's how I felt at the time. The nurses convinced me to walk, walk, walk as much as I could. It actually helped! Hoping you are also benefiting from the Walk. Keep me posted.

I am walking a lot. The gas is getting better. There are times of day though that I feel like the Pillsbury dough boy or the girl that turned into a blueberry in "Charlie and the chocolate Factory". Lol I've decided that with many things in life, if we truly knew how hard it would be, we probably wouldn't do it. My weight has been my safety blanket to not do things and truly live life. I know it's the best decision for me, but had I known how I would feel and for how long, my fears and anxiety would get in the way and I wouldn't have gone through it. I'm glad I didn't know until it was too late and I was wondering why time machines don't yet exist. [emoji16][emoji23] Hope your journey is going well for you!

I am 10 days out from my revision from sleeve surgery to RNY. I was doing wonderful until yesterday when I now have lower back, right sided pain with every breath I take. I was doing my incentive spirometry (breathing apparatus) and was up to 2000 (baseline) until yesterday. With this sharp pain I can only get to 750. I am passing lots of gas :), but that is not relieving this pain. I have transitioned a few days ago to full liquids. My surgeon is very conservative on advancing diet. Any thoughts? Good news is I am down 17 lbs. in 10 days.

Are you pushing too much activity and need to rest more? I noticed when I was walking and "pushing through the pain" that I started having more back pain.

My gas pains are up in my shoulders & other than fart, fart, fart, hubby has been walking with me, and thus far it's not helping, but my Lord I hope something helps soon!

I can't take a deep breath, and it hurts to roll over when I'm sleeping, other than my stomach which is a given.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
