Gastric pain after drinking Pepsi

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I did my Mini gastric bypass in 28th of may last year it's been a 1 year and 5 month free of junk food and carbonated drinks.

BUT last night i was craving for Pepsi so i drank a small can but now I'm having gastric pain in my lower stomach is it normal or should i tell my doctor???

I hate to tell him that cause he's a total meanie

What to do is there anyone had the same thing with carbonated drinks???

I had the sleeve gastrectomy in April of this year and if I have a small drink of anything carbonated, I feel nauseous until I let out a huge burp. I've actually had to get my hubby to pat me on the back like burping a baby.

I can drink carbonated, no issues (thankfully because I hate the taste of still water!)

My mate with a bypass can’t even have 50ml without pain, nausea. She is 4 years out.

Looks like you might be in her camp! But no great loss I reckon - nothing in soda or diet soda that is good for our journey!

I don’t drink carbonated beverages post-MGB. Almost 2 years post-op I don’t feel that great when I try to drink them. But it’s fine because I never had a soda habit before surgery so I’m not missing or craving them. They’re not healthy in general so I say good riddance.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
