HELP! Unbearable gas pain in upper abdomen 😩



Recommended Posts

If you’d had the gastric sleeve, what did you do to help with gas pain?! What worked for you? Or what have you heard/read about that worked for other people? (Besides walking of course)

I had the rouen-y and my first day was so painful. The only thing to ease the pain was morphine. After that the suggestion to walk around should be embedded in your brain. That will help move the gas and jumpstart your digestive system. FYI- I also had to learn to let the gas go, as embarrassing as that may be. More room out than in!

I am almost 4 week post gastric sleeve. I had the worst gas pain all around my big incision, and had not gone to the bathroom for 6 days post surgery. I purchase Myralax, taking that along with Gas-X, and the next day I started to "go" and the gas pains subsided.

I don't know about you but I was advised not to take any gas relievers. My surgery was in Dec. and even now I still have gas, not painful though. Walking did do wonders for me! I pray your journey and your recovery continue to progress very well.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      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 congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      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.
