30 months p/o - painful gas

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

A little history - I am 30 months post op/sleeve. I have had great success, but recently put back on 20 pounds. That isn't such a big deal to me as I still surpassed my surgeon's goal, but I am working to get it off.

My question is, has anyone at this stage experience painful gas and bloating? It's every time I eat, and sometimes just out of the blue. I am also on protonix, which helped initially about 6 mos-1 year after surgery. I've actually experience these problems for sometime, I just thought it was normal - but now its gotten so much worse. It doesn't seem anything will help...tums or rolaids might help a little, but not for long.

I haven't contacted my surgeon's office yet - he is actually now out of network with my insurance. I may ask my PCP to schedule an endoscopy.

Advice please????

I am 7 months behind you and every time I eat I belch constantly and my throat makes weird noises and there is nothing I can do about it. So I rarely eat out because of it. Mine started after I got scoped and never went away, it could of been coincidence that it started at that time for me. Hope you get some relief.

      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.

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