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.

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.

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

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.
