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 can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
