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.

      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....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
