Anyone else experience zero pain after surgery?



Recommended Posts

I’m sitting in my hospital room right now (day after roux en y surgery) and I’ve had absolutely no pain since I came out of surgery. Just wondered if anyone else experienced this? All the reading I did said most people were in excruciating pain so I’m surprised by this. Not even much “discomfort” from incision sites or gas either. If I didn’t have holes in my stomach I wouldn’t have believed I had surgery.

My pain was minimal at best. I had some slight pain getting in and out of bed, but that pain was dulled by the pain meds in the IV. It grew a bit once I was removed from the IV, but by no means was it really anything more than mild.

Mine very minimal as well. I kept asking, "Are you sure you did anything?"

Minimal. I bounced back quickly from surgery.

I haven't had mine yet but that was how I felt after my hysterectomy. Once my catheter was out I was "jumping" out of bed, forgetting that I had the pain pump still attached! Surprised all the medical staff with how active I was

This was exactly me, too. Like, are you sure you removed part of my stomach??

When I was in the hospital they gave me "routine" Toradol through my IV even though I wasn't having any pain. I was there less than 24 hrs post op. Once I got home I have never taken any pain meds or nausea meds. I'm 4 weeks post op today and I couldn't have ask for a better recovery!

Almost 0 pain here. I had 6 hourly paracetamol (Tylenol) the first day but nothing after.
