Left abdomen pain 4 weeks out



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I had my RNY bypass on December 8th and I am feeling great and have lost almost 30lbs already [emoji15]. I was just curious if anyone else is or had experienced soreness on their left side near their large entry point for surgery. I know that this was going to be the longest to heal but I just wanted to see when it might go away. Sometimes the soreness goes to my back directly behind where it is sore on the front. It’s weird. Thanks for any responses.

I am 4 weeks out today and am having pain. It had totally resolved and I was feeling great until last week and now I am having a stabbing, tearing pain on the left side near the large incision site. I can barely stand up straight. I had something similar when I was sleeved and was told it was a stitch. I called my Dr. yesterday and he said it could be the same thing again. If not better by Friday, I have to let him know.

The knot under the main incision site is the last to heal. I am almost 5 years out now and it is completely gone. Even after a couple years, I was wondering if it would ever go away.

Hopefully they figure it out. Mine is just a sore ache not a sharp pain. Best of luck

Thanks for the info. It’s more of a nuisance than anything.

I had this. My pain had pretty well resolved and then around the four week mark this started. I did some research online and it seemed a lot of ppl experienced similar pain that could be related to muscles/nerves. It was a burning and tearing pain deep under my largest incision, for me on the right. This lasted about ten days and is now resolved thank goodness.

      Had my gastric sleeve surgury on 12/28. I have lost about 15 pounds since surgery but have hit a stall. It is soooo frustrating! Any advice is greatly appreciated

        Just be patient. It sounds like a pat answer, but it is literally the only thing you can do to crush the dreaded 3 week stall!

        We have the same surgery day and the same problem. I’ve lost about 20, then stopped. I’m hardly eating anything, logging everything, getting my water and proteins. I don’t know what’s wrong. It’s so frustrating.

      I'm doing so well on the new plant-based way of eating! It's been 1 month since my final diet visit, where I found out I had gained about four pounds since my previous visit in November. That meant I had only lost 3 pounds overall from March-December 2017. Ugh, sad trombone. However, in the last 3 weeks of eating a plant-based diet I've lost 13 pounds from my December visit weight! And that includes Christmas and a vacation! So definitely not a "perfect" month by any means. I'm really hoping this way of eating will support my goal of reaching and maintaining 100% of excess weight lost.

        Hey whatever works! I've had a few friends go plant-based and drop a lot of weight naturally.
