1 year post op still have occasional random discomfort



Recommended Posts

I am 1 year post op bypass. A few times a week I will get a twinge often to the right of my belly button, sometimes in other places like higher up towards the stomach. It is not immediately after eating. I wouldn't say it is pain just a fairly quick ache or twinge. I am thinking it's maybe gas or part of the digestion process. I can't find that its related to a certain food or activity. I think I am still at the mind set where I am physically reminded of my surgery and maybe it's just something I pay attention to.

Has anyone had this? I don't think it's a medical issue it's been ever since surgery so nothing new. Does anyone else feel anything on a weekly basis. I don't remember ever feeling digestive little cramps or discomfort before surgery unless I was ill.

Right quadrant = most likely gallbladder sludge

I’ve had mine out years ago. I never had these twinges after that surgery, only after the bypass.

I'm almost exactly a year out and get the random twinges you mention. I think it's partly because I pay much more attention to anything going on in my digestive tract than I did before. In addition, I seem to have much more frequent gas pains at this point than I did perhaps six months ago--not sure why.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
