Stomach spasms, newly sleeved



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve surgery on April 26, 2019. Today is the 30th. Everything has been great since surgery except for one thing!! Periodically I have spasms/cramps in my stomach. It's not my incisions but inside. They only happen for a few seconds and then they go away. Sometimes they come back every few minutes. And other times it will be a few hours. Why do I feel these pains? They are getting really annoying!! Any advice would be awesome!

Try warmer liquids. I couldn't do sugar free popsicles or cold drinks as they caused spasms. Good luck.

I have tried warmer liquids. Maybe I should write everything down and see if something is triggering it. When did the spasms finally go away?

The spasms stopped as soon as I stopped drinking really cold stuff. I drink cool stuff fine now. But have a severe stricture and ulcers, so thats a whole other story!@

I have a problem with my stomach. I went to see the PA Nd she said it sounded like stomach spasms. It's hard to explain it. It is not constant. It's a deep ache and feeling nauseous. it only lasts about 5 seconds and goes away.

I'm not sure if your sounds like mine.

If I still have it in e more weeks they will do an endoscopy to take a look. Btw I'm 9 weeks out.

I hope we both figure out what is going on!

That's how long mine last! Except I haven't been nauseous at all. I'm not sure what it is. I see my surgeon Monday so I'll ask him about it! I hope we get it figured out! I'm not miserable but it's definitely a little painful and annoying!

I had my surgery March 11 my first week I had the spasms also and vomited but they went away after the first week just make sure to drink slow and when you start purée foods start off timing each bite by five minutes

Thanks for the tip! I still have a ways to go until the puree stage! I feel better knowing that they will go away! Lol! Thank you!

Update!! I called my drs office and asked about it. A nurse called me back. She told me it could be a sign of me getting constipated. I took milk of magnesia and I was able to go to the bathroom and haven't had any "spasms" since!
