Sharp pain in belly after I swallow, but disapates quickly



Recommended Posts

My surgery was 5 days ago and I am intermittently experiencing sharp pain after I swallow Water. I can feel the liquid descending in my body, sharp pain for a couple seconds and then it subsides very quickly. Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes it happens to me. 11 days out. I think it happens bc I swallow too much at a time. I find that if I space out smaller sips it doesn't happen.

Yes, when I take too big of a sip, I get the same pain.

Thanks all! Thought I was taking small sips, evidentially not small enough! Even smaller sips does the trick!

Yep, this happened to me beginning upon my very first sip of Water after surgery. It lasted at least two weeks for me if I remember correctly. It was very disconcerting but the doctor examined me before I left the hospital and said I was ok but to call him if there was any change. It was a horrible sharp pain. So I feel ya!!! It will get better!!!
