I am 3 weeks post op gastric bypass. I wanted to see if anyone else is still experiencing extreme soreness in their stomach after surgery. My whole abdomen is so sore almost as if I have been doing sit-ups and it hurts to turn over in bed at night. I had been doing 30 minutes of walking 1 week post op and it was fine. The only things that I have done differently lately was I recently started a soft diet and I also have started back to work. Also can anyone tell me how long it takes until your stomach actually feels normal again without pain?

I had extreme pain that felt like a really bad side stitch for about a month to a month and a half after surgery. I don't know if that's what you're experiencing, but the pain does get better I just had to be gentle with myself. If yours feels like it's getting worse or you notice any redness or swelling around your incisions, call your surgeon's office. Best wishes on healing!

Could be extra stitching put in there for re- enforcement. if it is, it will release at the time you're healed enough, not every surgeon does do that, but many do. Say it helps prevent any internal herniation!

It was about a month before i started to get full relief. Maybe if you noticed it was related to when you increased to soft food try going back a stage for a couple of days and see if that help.

I am 4 weeks post op and am still very sore. I just ordered a compression garment from Amazon after it was suggested on a post. I hope it gives me some relief.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
