For the last few nights ive been woken by the worst pain ive ever felt, a really intense labour likr pain around the base of my breast bone but inside behind it if makes sense.. no pain killers seem to help last night i tried co-codamol 30/500mg x2, tramadol 100x2 and diazipam 4mg but 4 hours after was still in amazing pain. Im 3 months post op and have had no other real issues since, ive been careful with what i eat and drink i did have some sparkling spring Water the last couple of days but was only very light bubbles. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated, i dont want to waste a docs appointment if i dont need one..

Try to stay away from the carbonated liquids. It could be aculminated gas from the carbonation. I hope you are feeling better.

Hi and sorry for your pain. It would help if you fill out your profile so we even know what kind of surgery you had or are going to have and when your surgery was or will be, etc...

It sounds to me like this is a phone call to your doc for evaluation type of pain but I'm just a shmo on the internet and not a doc or nurse!

I had a gastric sleeve, i thought as id posted in the gastric sleeve section of the forum it would show that..

Could it be a gallbladder attack? Six weeks after my surgery I had that type of pain you are describing and it ended up being a gallbladder attack (which was brought on by my weight loss). Never had one before but went to the emergency department and they removed my gallbladder the next day.

It’s probably best to see your doctor because it sounds like it needs to be looked into further, but I hope you feel better soon!

Under your name on the left hand side it shows a lot of information for most of us. And then in our signatures, many of us have additional information. Under your name it only shows "pre-op" and "4posts" and doesn't show what your surgery date was, how tall, your weight goal, surgery weight, etc...

And any of us can post to any forum. Some even post the same question in multiple forums. I'm not telling you this to show you are doing anything wrong, only explaining that it's really hard to give our opinions with blind info, hon!

Hope you get help from your doc.

I'd run it by my surgeon for sure. It may just be reflux - but it could be something else. I'd run it by - if nothing else, for peace of mind.

re: carbonation - I don't know how long ago you had surgery, but you're healing the first few months post-op, and carbonated beverages can irritate that. So try giving up on that and see if it helps - at least until you're fully healed. Some surgeons say to stay away from carbonated beverages forever, some say during the first few months. If after you're healed the carbonation doesn't bother your stomach, then you're probably fine to drink it. But for some people, the carbonation is *always* irritating - so they're better off staying away from permanently.

but I would call my surgeon's office this week just to let them know what's going on in case it's more than that.

My first thought was gallbladder. When my gallbladder decided to act up, I also had pain in the area you are describing. Location was a little atypical, but it was definitely gallbladder.

Another suggested possible reflux, which is also a reasonable possibility.

Advice: call your doctor's office and have it evaluated. And I would certainly cut out the carbonated beverages. #1, they aren't helping and #2, they're contraindicated at this point in your journey.

You might need to make a phone call to your doctor. I never experienced this and it doesn't sound routine or normal. Like others said, maybe too much carbonation, but you're better off getting checked and being better safe than sorry

IMHO

Waste an appointment with your Doctor, better safe than sorry.

Get Well Soon 💜

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
