Weird fluttering/seizing/twisting feeling in stomach after VSG



Recommended Posts

I'm 4 weeks post-op after VSG, and I noticed that when my stomach is empty, I get this weird fluttering/seizing/twisting feeling in it. It wouldn't describe it as painful, but it's definitely unpleasant.

I can feel the sensation about to come on for a few seconds, and then it happens for a few seconds, and then it's over. Sometimes it happens a few times per hour, and sometimes only 2-3 times per day.

Does anyone else experience this or know what it is? Are these just hunger pangs, and I'm so unfamiliar with them that I'm just not used to it?

If I haven’t eaten a lot for awhile I feel an empty scooped out tightening feeling. It’s almost like I am pulling in my stomach muscles to zip up tight pants. If I eat or drink it goes away. It happens rarely.

I am 6.5 months post-op and have had a cramping nausea feeling in my stomach since surgery. I'm not sure what it is caused by and am considering doing an endoscopy to find out if something is wrong. Like you, it doesn't last too long. Maybe 15 seconds. It comes and goes and is unpleasant.

Yes, I think you should have yourself checked out, sounds like spasming but I'm sure curious to see why it is happening. Please keep US updated.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
