They said pain can be expected. If it's a pain on you left side under neath your ribs that doesn't go away and is accompanied by chills and fever I would alert your care team right away.

Drinking to fast can be upsetting, and it's a challenge for sure. If you're like me your bodies used to gulping. Just stay mindful and you'll pull through!

I was sleeved on the 12th also and I do have pains there also if I eat or drink too fast or too much at once. I also notice once I feel full that is where I feel it most.

Just take it slower and listen to your body telling you you’re full. Sounds weird but sometimes I stand up if I feel full because the area you are describing I will feel a “pull” or a tugging if I’m full. When I am sitting I might not feel as full as when I’m standing.

I had mine on the 12th too. I get a fairly severe pain in that area if I eat something that doesn't work or if I drink too fast. I also get a horrible left shoulder pain, which I think is likely referred from the diaphragm. If it's constant I would have more concern.

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

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
