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...

       Anyone else eat and drink at the same time? 
      After a couple of months with my new stomach I tried eating and drinking at the same time- nothing bad happened. Keep in mind I only eat 3-5 bites of anything to make sure I save room for water/beer/ wine during my meal. Does anyone else do this? I end up with a total of 1,200-1,500 calories a day including 2 beers or a glass of chardonnay. I have surpassed my goal weight of 135- now I'm 130.02 and continue to lose a pound a week. I eat 5-6 times a day, stick to healthy options and exercise / play sports multiple times a week. Curious to know if anyone else eats and drinks at the same time?

      Well, as of today I am 3.5 weeks out from my gastric bypass surgery. I have had a few high points, but also some lows.  Lowest moments lately are watching people that can have Starbucks Frappaucinos with no issues, and driving by the MN State Fair. The State Fair was always my annual feed fest - tons of eating some of the best tasting items ever! I am skipping this year and it hurts. I am trying to work through my giving up eating the way I used to and I have moments that I question why I did this in the first place. My moods are all over the place and I am trying to find other things that make me happy.  
      I had hit a weight loss stall, but I just went to pureed food on Monday and suddenly I lost another 4 pounds, so that is good. I've only had one time I almost got sick and that was because I ate too much, too fast.  I am praying I don't have any other problems as I add more foods.  I am scheduled to move to solid food on August 27th.
      That's all for now... Megan

        I think most of us have the same grieving feelings that you're having. Even if we normally ate pretty well, there were occasions that we just loved a good pig-out. It's just not the same as saying we can still have small portions of those foods. Sometimes we just want EXCESS! State Fair is an excellent example.

        Maybe try to find related things to celebrate. Like next year, you'll be able to go to the state fair, walk around all day without hurting and ride any ride you want without worrying if you'll fit! You won't have to worry about how strong the folding chairs are at the shows. You may even run into an old friend who will be flabbergasted at how amazing you look ;)
