My surgery was 3/10/17, and since December I have had 5 occurrences in which I experience severe gas pain, or so I hope it's gas..This pain is so intense that it takes my breath away and nothing helps it, not walking, sitting, laying, trying to pass gas, gas x strips, nothing, I just have to wait for it to pass. Typically it lasts about 3-4 minutes. The first 2 times it happened it was after I tried drinking a beer, yes, I know, I am not supposed to drink it, so I have sworn off beer forever now.. Last week and today it happened again, after I drank my Premier Protein, which I have been drinking about 4-5 times a week since surgery. Has anyone else had this happen? The pain is localized to right around my ribs...Am I drinking too fast?

I’d get it checked out by your surgeon - it’s possible it’s the start of your gallbladder giving you issues, particularly if it’s more localised to the right side. (Not meaning to worry you)

Thanks for the reply, but they removed my gallbladder when I had the sleeve surgery. I have my follow up on 2/27, hopefully they can help. I just didn't know if anyone else had this issue.

It sounds like a bout of diverticulitis, no joke go get checked out, can be very serious, please have that rules out with simple CT scan. I hope I’m wrong

Any chance youve become lactose intolerant ?

Heavy gas from the Protein Shake + the smaller stomach and it makes a lot of sense why youd be so uncomfortable.

Beer would cause the same issues from carbonation

I would think its something simple like this as theyre often the most likely

And it would be pretty easy to tell if youre lactose intolerant...
