Pain after advancing to soft food stage VSG



Recommended Posts

I did fantastic on full liquids, had sleeve May 1st. Advanced to soft foods last Friday, measured 1/2 c food. Developed severe pain center several inches above belly button and under right rib. Tender to the touch, very painful to move. No pain while eating or drinking. Went to dr Tuesday he thought it was muscular. Yesterday only drank fair life or cab master milk- only minor pain all day (still had some pain with movement). Today ate 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese (took lactaid with it because I think I may be developing lactose intolerance). Ate slow, no pain while eating but when I stood up I had that severe sharp pain again in same place and it was super painful to touch. Pain didn’t last as long but maybe because I ate 1/2 as much as before? I put a note into the dr but thought I would ask you guys too. Absolutely no pain without movement other than being sometimes still sore to touch but only after food. No nausea, vomiting, fever and labs are normal. He did say if it continues he will check gallbladder even though it doesn’t sound like gallbladder. Anyone else experience this?

Only after food? I would have said it was the incision site in the muscle if you hadn't mentioned it happens when you eat.

I thought incision site too but it’s screaming in pain by the end of the night (after eating all day) and was definitely worse right after eating today. The pain after eating and standing up was instantaneous

Time to give your surgeon a call I think

I saw him Tuesday and sent a message today. Sometimes it’s good to here from people who have BTDT
