So many chest pains



Recommended Posts

I’ve been sleeved since 9/24/2019. To date I’ve lost about 107lbs. I never seemed to have any issues with food or anything for a while but lately for the pas few months I’ve been having bouts of severe chest pains. So bad I can hardly move. Often they are accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Can’t say that it’s what I eat because often times it comes after eating foods I’ve eaten the entire time since being sleeved like eggs avocado and I usually have no issues. This morning for example I woke up like this. I have had an endoscopy done which found no problems. Today I’ve tried taking an antacid and a gas pill and I’m finding a really no relief. I’ve been laying here in bed all morning with a heating pad trying to get it to pass. Doctors really have nothing to tell me. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

No experience with this but if it were me I would make a visit to the cardiologist, keep us posted

I assume they've ruled out gall bladder?

They haven’t even mentioned my gallbladder but they’ve done X-rays and MRIs and haven’t found anything concerning

An ultrasound is the best way to diagnose gallstones, but an MRI should have shown them as well if that were the cause of your pain. I hope they find an answer for you soon.

I would bet money that is your gallbladder. Ask for an abdominal ultrasound. That is almost identical to the symptoms I had.

I agree. This really sounds like your gallbladder. You need to insist on an ultrasound. Severe attacks can feel like a heart attack. Try to stay low fat on what you are eating until you can get tested,

goid luck and please keep us posted!

did your Dr also give you a script for omeprozole? ts could be heartburn from your surgery in the first 6 months you are more prone to that so you should have been given that rx right off the bat. i would insist you Drs check for the and gall bladder. fast weightloss like yours can def affect your gallbladder and kidneys and liver...

Hey everyone! A urgent care doctor finally said he believes I have biliary colic which I guess is a fancy term for gallstones but yet not a full blown gallbladder infection yet. Regardless he said it probably needs to come out.. and I have an ultrasound appointment Tuesday to confirm. Of course I tell my co worker and she says in gonna gain weight after I have it out. Who knows if there’s truth to that 🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

I continued to lose weight after having my gallbladder out. Tell her to butt out if she can't be supportive!

Just got my ultrasound results back. Multiple Stones. Thank you to everyone who suggested my gallbladder! 3+ trips to the ER and not one of those high paid doctors thought of it even though my chart said I was a Bariatric patient! Thank you all so much! Holding off to have it removed Jan 23.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
