discomfort and pain 15 months later



Recommended Posts

So for the last few days I have had some real discomfort. I can eat and drink but fill up sooner (not so terrible). I have some real tenderness on the upper left abdomen and feel bloated. Not constipated. I am seeing my doc later in the week but wondering if anyone has any ideas?

For me it was a worst case scenario. At around the same time PO, I had that kind of discomfort/pain and it ended up being in internal hernia that opened up and my gut had come through it and twisted so I had a partial obstruction. Hope they figure it out quickly!

What have you been eating? I get bloaty and feel like I'm going to get the foamies if I eat fried food or something my stomach still won't tolerate (bread, tortillas, Pasta, potatoes).

nothing to do with food. have been eating really well and nothing in my diet changed. definitely something mechanical methinks, especially with the tenderness.

I have the same discomfort to the left of my pouch and under my left ribs. I have my 3 month follow up today and I plan to ask about it! Hope you hear back from your doc and we can compare notes later.

Edit* I just noticed that my appointment is on the 19th, so not today.

i'm 16 months out and LITERALLY going through the same thing. The bloating makes me have a hard time breathing, like i need to take a deep breath to catch up several times. Did you experience that, too?

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
