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.
