Gastric sleeve and lower Back Pain



Recommended Posts

I had Gastric sleeve surgery since about 3 years ago. I also have recurrent abdominal and back pain. I've been having this pain for years now. They did some testing and MRI's and found disc herniations. But don't those go away on their own? Has anyone here had any experience with lower back pain with the sleeve? Any thoughts? Ideas?

I don't see the two as having any relationship to the other. Disc herniations don't just go away. Are you seeking chiropractic or other care for your back? Take care.

I did have a herniation in my C6. I had an MRI and co sult with a surgeon. he gave me 3 choices.

Wait

Shots

Surgery

I waited and it eventually subsided. I no longer had the numbing and tingling in my fingers. That was 12 years ago.

I do have 4 bulging discs in my lower back and have chronic pain. I've lost almost 60 lbs and it has not made a difference. My back is a mess. I'm not sure what my future holds with the pain, but I've been in pain for years.
