shoulder pain after eating/drinking



Recommended Posts

I was having horrible reflux and had all the Fluid removed from my band. Today I went for a barium swallow, still waiting on the results. Dr. didn't see anything at the time, but will review the images. The past couple weeks I have had shoulder pain when I eat or drink. It isn't right away, but within 10 minutes of eating/drinking. Has anyone experienced this? What was the outcome? Thank you for your time 😁

I too am having this pain. How did it work out for you. I have no other signs of leak. Just wanted to know how you were now.

I had the band removed, I no longer have the pain. Other then gaining a few pounds I am feeling sooo much better. Good luck, I hope you feel relief soon, nothing worse then having that pain!

This is similar to what happened to me. The pain would travel from my abdomen to my right shoulder and arm. It was triggered after eating and when I would lay down. I just had an upper GI and a prolapse was found. Recommendation is to have the band removed.

I had the sleeve, not the band, but the pain eventually subsided. It’s been a few months now and I don’t remember when I last had it. I’m very glad it’s over because it had me very worried.
my doc won’t even perform lap band anymore. He says they cause way too many complications. He’s very much pro sleeve sayin that he's seen so much success with the sleeve in his patients.
at our information meeting he talked a woman out of getting the band because he said weight loss was not significant enough and most people end up having it removed in the end and regain all the weight.
If you do remove your band, consider the sleeve. I highly recommend it.
good luck in your journey.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
