Stomach pain while sleeping



Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced stomach pain after their sleeve while sleeping? I’m three months out, every night I wake up in the middle of the night with this pain. It’s a dull aching pain that is relieved after I get up. I’ve had this since day one of surgery I thought maybe it’s phantom pains. ???

I don't recall stomach pains at 3 months; but I did have some early on, just from healing. Any specifics...like where is this dull pain located? Lower? Around the belly button? Upper? Right side? Left Side? or just a general all over?

Have you been checked for a hernia?

I did not have continuous aching in my stomach after my first 1 month. I would suggest reporting this to your surgeon or PCP for further testing.

Ouch, sounds yukky! ((hugs)) Hang in there and ask the doc. I had similar stuff but it was adhesions.

It’s my actual stomach pouch. Well that is were it feels like. I don’t hurt while I eat or anything like that. Only while sleeping. I’m due for my three month checkup but I have to go get my blood-work first.

To me it sounds as if it’s just pressure on your healing stomach. But if it’s continuing I’d definitely let your doc know.

Do you use a CPAP? I had the same thing, my pressure needed to be dropped because of the weight loss. The machine was blowing me up like a balloon. I would wake up blasting gas out of both ends and some day in agonizing pain because of it. They say your numbers can drop with just losing 10lbs. I lost 45 when I discovered what was causing my problems.

      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

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
