1 year post op and odd gut pains



Recommended Posts

So off and on I have extreme pain in gut, in the center below the breasts bone. I am ok when I am sitting or laying down. When I stand or move I have a sharp pain. I was having diarrhea off and on, which i got from a trip to Mexico, at least that’s what I thought. Have you had something similar? what was it? anything I can do, I can’t get to doctor for a while.

Is it relieved with tums or pepto bismol? I had pain in the same spot that would come randomly and be severe and it turned out it was a hernia. (Pre wls) I wonder if it could be an ulcer?

the pain doesn’t feel like a stomach pain it feels like in my intestines, pepto will give you an ulcer and it doesn’t feel like heart burn or gas, i bet it is a hernia, is there anything I can do I am having a hard time working on my feet

Glad you finally got things straightened out! The fact they all live in the same area is no real excuse for faulty diagnostic skills!

So so true, one of my apps says "Your gut knows things your Brain has not yet comprehended" Your body has a wisdom if you but listen . Look at me , I fought with my Bariatric clinic, they kept telling me I had pist- operat8ve swelling and I was expecting too much too soon. I was right, my body knew, I had a bad stricture in my RNY pouch, ulcers there and I'm my jejunem. I had l8ved in this body for many years, I knew innately something was very wrong.
Stay well, stay healthy and have a Wonderful Day!

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
