Stomach pain 9 months post op



Recommended Posts

I’m about 9 months post VSG surgery and I just started getting massive sharp pain in my stomach. It came on quite suddenly and hurts whether I’m standing, sitting or lying down. Any idea what this could be? Has this happened to anyone else? Prior to today I had been doing and feeling great! Thanks for reading!!

Sorry to hear that. Should you give a call to your surgeon just to ask?

Any changes should be reported immediately to your Team/Surgeon/Primary

So super important

Good Luck 💜

Do you still have your gallbladder? Just a thought

appendix? Complication from your surgery? You need to call your doctor and maybe get it checked out in the ER.

Worth calling the DR. If you had a hernia repair that could also be a cause. I had some pains, but they were sharp and short in duration and usually when being active, the theory at the time was scar tissue from the hernia repair and it eventually went away (but I did go see the DR)

Thanks for all the replies! I think it was just gas pains! It hurt just as much as it did right after surgery. I had something to eat and the pain went away and it hasn't come back! Thanks again!

      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.
