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.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
