Woken up in the night with intense pain



Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I’m now 2.5 months out from Surgery. Recovery was straight forward. But last night I woke up with the most intense pain in my stomach. It felt like a 400lb sumo wrestler was sitting on my abdomen. It literally took my breath away. I got up and was gasping for breath, it eventually subsided after about 30 minutes. I’m far enough out I thought I wouldn’t have anything like this.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what this could have been?

Well, I don't want to go to the extreme, but I'm thinking maybe you have a really hard stool or bad gas moving through? Especially if it comes and goes. But gosh, it could also signal bad stuff too...just watch how you feel today. Maybe see about your #2 train track schedule? :) If you haven't had a big job lately, maybe it's time to call MOM? ;)

I love it when you talk discreetly! :lol:

@deargh I don't have any suggestions beyond what Fluffy said, but - YOUR PICTURES - Wow! You've already changed so much! Congrats!

I agree with the other two comments. You should definitely call your doctor if it happens again. Now, please share with us your stats!! What a difference in both pics :) How much weight have you lost?

You know what guys, I’m a 100% sure that’s it. I have severe problems with my BM’s (only going maybe once a week). @Kygirl I’ve lost 70 lbs there! I need to lose another 70 but I’m getting there! X

Thanks EQ! I had a read there, what I had didn’t really match up, I wasn’t exactly short of breath, it was that the pain was so intense I was gasping, This sleeve stuff is super complicated!

And they also could be pancreatitis, my symptoms were quite similar but they included dry heaving. Medical literature states the worst pain (save metastatic cancer which,is a Brand New Ballgame!) is Kidney Stone Colic, well pancreatic pain is 100th of a % point less.
I believe my REBIRTHDAY Bariatric. PostPain will be "a pleasant stroll on Sunday afternoon in the Park" in comparison,😜👍😜

I started taking Miralax every other day. It has helped me as I had the same issue.

I would watch the gallbladder too. I had mine out before my VSG but the pain was insane. It came in waves and would last an hour or two.

Thanks a million @Kygirl! Still a way to go! But we’ll get there 💪🏻. @TexasMommy I didn’t even think of gallbladder the pain is coming and going! I didn’t have my gallbladder. The pain has been coming and going in waves. And my bowels have seem to have gotten the message! I’ve been pooping everyday, in shock but in a happy way!

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
