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.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.
