Which Pain Kilkers?



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had bruised ribs , and had agonising pain? I was given anti biotics for something , and they made me very sick and gave me terrible diarreoh. I was trying to vomit for 2 days and 2 nights on an empty stomach . The doctor told me I’d now got bruised ribs . I am 5 months post op and whenI left hospital after a bypass, I was told that I could only take Paracetamol . The pain is so intense that I can’t talk , or do anything when it comes, and the tablets often don’t last 4 hours .At 5 months out, dies anyone know if we can take anything stronger ?Tried to talk the bariactric team , but can’t get anyone .

Thank you in advance for reading this 🙂

I think the only things we're NOT supposed to take are NSAIDs and extended-release things....

Bruised ribs are very painful and there's nothing they can do about it. You'll just have to stick it out. I've never taken any pain medication for anything.

Try ice or heat as well. It may only help a little but could make the pain more tolerable.

I’ve had bruised ribs. They can give you a mild pain pill. Make sure to tell your dr you had the surgery and you can’t have steroids or any inflammation drugs.

Thank you Rthomas. I found out today that they found ecoli in my urine too, so I guess maybe some of the pain could’ve been that ? I don’t know really . In the last 3 weeks , so many doctors have told me so many conflicting things, I’m just overwhelmed by it all now. I was feeling so good after my surgery , then I got a stomach bug, and haven’t felt will since .

That drives me crazy when you get different information from different doctors. I hope you feel better. I hope they help you soon. I know the pain isn’t good for you especially after surgery.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
