I had my gastric sleeve done on April 16, 2019. I’m currently in my full liquids stage. When I drink Water or eat Jello or just consume anything within the rules so to say, I can’t tell if my stomach hurts because I’m full or gassy. I’ve been burping a lot after surgery but past two days I have been having a lot of gas (TMI, sorry). Anyone feel the same?

Hey rosekay!

I actually had my VSG on April 17, 2019, so I’m still on my Clear Liquids. Anyways, I have the exact same feeling after I drink anything. Whether I take the tiniest of sips or just a normal little sip, hot or cold, i always get some terrible gas pains after a couple sips. I’ve read a few things that it’s normal for up to a week, and that it’s just your new stomach adjusting still. But I too have the same gas, stuck in my stomach feeling.

Hi Jon!

Yeah, it feels very weird. That’s why it confuses me on whether it’s gas or pain from being full. However, I measure everything just to be safe.

Also, look out for the dumping syndrome. I freaked out but when I called my nurse, she said it’s normal and it’s supposed to happen.

Congratulations on your VSG and best of luck ツ

I had my sleeve performed on April 17th as well and I am experiencing similar symptoms. For some reason the pain is worse with chicken broth. It tends to come and go. Have either of you started planning for the next stage?

My doc recommended chewable GasX. It was a lifesaver! I’m 8 days post op. Surgery- 4/15/19.

I took max amount daily for first 5 days.  Now just when discomfort hits!  I’d love to hear more from y’all.  I’m on full liquids now.

I am so ready! All of the liquids and Proteins are sweet or chicken broth. I so need savory in my life. I am hoping to purée some squash, carrots, deviled eggs- minus a few ingredients- next week.

How are y’all doing otherwise? I have one incision and spot that is still quite sore. Otherwise no pain. A little tired, but doing well and weight loss has been good so far.

My pain has been very minimum. I never took any pain medication, in fact I refused the script for narcotics. I’m still gassy at times but it comes and goes. I go back to the surgeon tomorrow and hopefully will start the purées stage. I’m trying to find things to eat that won’t gross me out in this texture. I’m glad your doing well. I know I’m losing weight because my pants fell down to my ankles yesterday when I was walking in the garage. It might be time for a belt.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
