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?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
