Just curious about this upper stomach pain. I am 2 on days post op and during the procedure I guess they found a hernia that they repaired while I was under and I am wondering if anyone else who had a hernia repaired has this pain. I am trying to drink my liquids and it just is painful trying to get fluids in. It feels like the top of my stomach is going to pop. It gets very painful with a stabbing pain. I have made myself burp and walked but I can't seem to get the liquids down without it acting up. Anyone else have this and have any tips? I also came home with a med pump that of course goes in where my bra would be so I even took that off thinking that was the problem but nope.

Thanks:) in advance

I am new to this site. Hello everyone! I just had a Gastric Sleeve on Tuesday, June 4. I am experiencing the exact same as Alwzia8. I have only been able to take in 22 oz Water and 1 1/3 Protein Drinks. I know that is normal but not nearly what I should be doing. Anyone have any good tips on how I can get on track better with what I should?

Well, I got mine done on Wednesday...no hernias. But I have had really bad acid reflux since then. It hurt s when I drink Water. But I've been able to get most of it down. Is it possible you're experiencing reflux? I get some antacids.

Thanks for your response stitches78! I think I was trying to take drinks that were too big. No pain really at all now. How are you feeling?

Sorry you're having that trouble. I was one of the lucky ones that had no trouble. But I do know how important it is that you stay hydrated, so keep sipping, sipping, sipping all day long.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
