Upper abdominal cramps/twinges



Recommended Posts

Sleeved 12-26. Had some issues day 2-4 with sipping/drinking and upper abdominal cramping ... passed quickly but somewhat painful. That has gotten a bit better but Started noticing that that it does it randomly throughout the day and especially night. Allmoat like a hunger pain that turns into a cramp or spasm. Lasts about 10-15 sec but wake me from sleep. Is this normal from swelling and healing? Will it subside or Gould I be concerned ? Called surgeon office by no return call yet. 2 week Post op appt 1-9.

I get pain or cramping when eating or drinking too fast. I also notice that when I take my time to eat when the food is moving down my stomach needs to "make room" to get down. The entire time I'm eating my sleeve talks to me. When the gas is moving around it does get painful but subsides shortly. I'm 3.5 weeks out (12/12/17) and it has been getting better/easier. Either that or I'm just used to it now.

12-28. I am also having those weird abdominal pains. Mine hit every two hours and are painful but don’t hurt as much if I drink some Water. But they definitely keep me up at night! It doesn’t matter if I’ve eaten or not. I tried Prevacid today and that actually helped. I took another at 8 and am hoping that helps throughout the night.

      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.
