Pain in left shoulder area



Recommended Posts

I had surgery January 16th for hiatel hernia closure and at same time my gastric sleeve surgery was converted to the bypass cause my stomach kept getting lodged in the hernia. I have the symptoms of an anastomotic leakage, pain in left shoulder area off and on while eating and have to stop eating rare back in seat until it stops. For last 3 days it's done this while eating. So I googled that question and it said an anastomotic leakage is what this symptom comes from.

Have you spoken to your surgeon?

When do you follow up with your surgeon? I would call the doctor.

Go to emergency at the hospital where you had your surgery. It’s better to be safe then sorry!

I don't mean to alarm you, but I had a leak after my surgery and did experience the left shoulder pain you are talking about. (I was still in the hospital when they found the leak.) The good news is that the leak was fixed quickly and easily and I did very well after that.

Yes - A leak is a serious complication! If you’re having symptoms of a leak, you should go to the ER immediately for evaluation.

      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.
