VGS scheduled for February - pain questions



Recommended Posts

Both of my sisters have had VGS surgery and both (1 year and 3 years out) have had amazing, life transforming results. My youngest sister however, had horrible pain coming out of surgery due to the gas used to fill the abdominal cavity. I know getting up and moving around is helpful, but does anyone know if surgeons release any of that gas once the surgery is complete? Just curious - and so excited for surgery!

I had no gas, and no pain after surgery. I assume they just let it out before gluing me up

My after surgery pain centered in my right shoulder joint. Besides what Superman said, I found some relief with a heating pad on my shoulder in the evenings. The pain was gone in about 48 hours.

Surgery pain...no, gas pain, yes! For about 3days. I would go to Walmart and Home Depot, etc., walk down every isle looking at stuff to help get rid of the gas pain. Doing great now! Weight is just falling off!

What did your surgeon use to inflate your abdomen during lap sx? I was under the impression that gas was always used to create a space for the sx to be completed...

I didn’t have much gas pain after my sleeve but definitely earlier last year when I had my appendix removed. Walking really helped, like a lot! I walked around the unit maybe 10 times in hrs 12-24 after surgery. And yes they release the gas but some does get trapped and some use heated and humidified gas as it helps to prevent the cellular death that causes the referred shoulder pain. If you’re worried about it, ask your doctor to go over step by step what will happen in your surgery including gas use.

That gas is in the plumbing the surgical gas is outside. But walking helps.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
