Abdominal Pain !! this is what I am facing since last week. I am worried about pouch ulcer. As pain is constant and even if I eat, its pain. Going to see Dr ( family DR) tomorrow. And then sonography. But till then I will be in delima about abdominal pain.

Pain just started last week. ( No new food introduce, no oily or sugary food taken) Still wonder why I have pain.

What could be the reason???

I am 9 month post op...MGB.

Any Idea? Any one had such constant abdominal pain??

Ulcer, gallbladder, constipation.. there are several common causes of abdominal pain that could be related to the surgery.

Hope it's a simple fix!

Thanks Berry78.

So I removed my gallbladder after 5 months of surgery and I do not have constipation. So next is Ulcer I guess :(

It is important to know where the pain is emanating from. Is it the left side of your stomach or the right? Upper stomach or lower. There is a lot of research out there about stomach pains. I was starting to suffer with bouts of constipation, and was getting pains on the right side by my belly button. I knew it was either that or the gall bladder, but once I started consuming more veggies, it went away and never returned.

Anyway, google 'stomach pain by location'. You can possibly narrow it down, but none of that can take the place of having your doctor run tests to find out the exact cause of the problem. I see that you have an appointment tomorrow, so I'm sure that you will get the answer that you seek shortly.

Good Luck!

Any update? And are you taking a PPI (e.g. Omeprazole/Prilosec), or consuming anything that could lead to an ulcer like NSAIDs (aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Celebrex, etc), coffee, alcohol, smoking? I hope you figure this out and feel better soon!

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
