Muscle pain/nausea after activities post op



Recommended Posts

I’m two weeks post op. Any time I do anything )like shower, pick stuff off the ground, excessive walking, etc) I get abdominal cramping and nausea. The cramping is like doing a million crunches with zero muscle mass. I realize that I’m healing and stuff like that takes time but I can barely make it through my shower without getting shaky and nauseous. Haven’t shaved my legs in over two weeks. I feel gross. What are some things we can do to help lessen that discomfort and how long did it last for you?

It will pass - i went thru hell for 20 -30 days = You can try using the baby meds for Air, But only time will heal the wound, Make sure at this point you are getting the protien, The body needs good protien to heal. I will tell you shortly you will be out of that phase and it will be forgotten, it was a b***h but the payoff will be well worth it. As for shaving your legs get someone else to do it for you, You earned the right!

When I was in your position someone suggested a heating pad on and off my stomach throughout the day and it really helped!

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
