2 weeks post op and in pain on day 13 and 14 whats going on!!



Recommended Posts

Hi all.

So glad i found this forum.. I had my sleeve done on the 22nd October 2 weeks today. My incisions have all healed up pretty well but i have this nagging dull pain under my left boob (Sorry TMI). I cant wear a bra as it makes the pain worst and it knocks me for 6. It seems to be 1 particular incision site thats causing the pain and its the largest incision site too.

I get out of breath from both pain and "little activity" ( have a 20month old so take that as you will lol)

Is this normal??

Not that I can relate to the boob thing but these incisions take a while to heal, From the outside they look healed but inside they are not. The left one is where the camera or light was put in so they most likely had to jiggle it around during surgery to light or see. The right one is where they pried up your liver to get to your stomach. I had issues with my right one since they used my rib to lift. Get a CBC cream that seemed to numb my sore spot for awhile. It will pass once they healing is done - took me about 7 weeks till they did not bother me. As for the 20 Month old good luck with that!

Yes. That's where the biggest equipment went and where they enter into your gut area. Mine was more sore than other places. But hard to tell if you are having unusually bad pain or if it's normal levels. If it continues and worries you, that's a phone call to your doc. They'll tell you if they need to see you. ((hugs))

My pain was in the same spot, just behind and below my left ribs. I called it a burning, tearing pain. I had it through week 4. One thing that helped was a heating pad to the area, not a lot of help, but it did make a difference. Welcome to the other side!

This makes sense if thats the case its a deep very sore area, the other incisions are not painful at all not even sore. Will keep an eye on this and contact my Dr again if its persistent and not getting any better. ❤

We had surgery the same day! I'm doing well, I think. The last 3 or 4 days though I've had headaches. I'm getting my 64 oz of Water easily and at least 60g of Protein daily so not sure what that's about. Anything to worry about?

Hi All

My surgery was October 14th and I’m still feeling a lot of abdominal pain.

I’m using heat pads and painkillers. Hopefully it’s just a healing time thing and will get better. I think I am ok with food intake- I’m on very soft squishy foods and liquid.
Hopefully you’re all doing okay too. Xx

      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

      2. ms.sss

        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)
