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.

      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.
