Hi all, I’m 2 days post op (sleeve) and it’s really hurting much more than I thought. I know it’s been asked and answered before but I’m so at the end of my rope, I don’t think I can even summon the energy to do a search. I have been able to drink and no temp, BP a little high (probably from anxiety and pain). I just need some reassurance that this is normal.... anyone else have pain for days? PS I’ve taken OxyContin and it just takes the edge off. Thanks in advance

Call your surgeons office. None of us here are qualified to give medical advice.

I had horrific pain and they gave my percocet and hydrocodone. Maybe you should call them, even after hours, to see if they can do something to manage your pain.

Good luck!

Oh, and for some of us, the pain is terrible.

Thanks all. I’ve def been in touch w surgeons office... I guess I was just trying to get a gauge on others experiences. I think if I knew that others also had pain for several days, I would not feel so alone.

2 days post op as well. If your pain is upper chest, it could be the gasses they use from surgery... so walk as much as you can. I had some strongish pain this morning after I tried some jello.. and used GasX which helped.

You've got this!
