So this may be obvious since I’m just shy of 3 weeks post up after the sleeve but want to make sure it’s nothing more. I’m having some muscle pains as I reach and move certain ways where my largest incision is. I want to say it’s just the muscle because I’m able and comfortable doing more and maybe I did to much too soon. Anyone have any experiences with this? I’ve done super well the past week so this feeling is kind of new. I have been taken some ibuprofen to take some of the pain away but it’s not unbearable.

Thanks in advance!

I would say that’s normal. I had some muscle pain when reaching up. I would think your body needs time to heal as a whole!! however just let your surgeon know. Just to make sure all is well!!

I’m having this too, muscle pain just near my largest incision site. It’s the only place that’s really still sore at 10 days out. Then think I tried to turn in my sleep or something last night and made it worse. Argh!

I am 14 days out and am feeling pain in several incisional sites but mostly where the biggest one is? It wasn’t bothering me before until 10 days post op? Is this normal? I am about to run out of pain medication and am feeling really concerned? Could I have over worked things?

I too am shy of 3 weeks and am experiencing pain in incisional sites and it also feels like I have been kicked in the gut or had the wind knocked out of me. I ran out of pain medication yesterday and wasn’t able to sleep much last night per pain. I also have an incisional hernia at my belly button area that will not be fixed till later that hurts. I am too wondering if this is normal or if I overworked my body in some way? I wish I could take ibuprofen but this is not an option. :(
