Weird question about fat pain pre-op



Recommended Posts

I don’t know where else to ask this.
for some reason out of no where I am having a pain in my abdominal fat. I never had this before and am wondering if anyone else ever had this. It’s not the “I can feel my fat growing” pain but like a dull uncomfortable pain in the muffin top area on the right side. It doesn’t feel like an organ or muscle pain but a literal pain in the fat.
i have not had surgery.
anyone ever experience this?

I'm not going to speculate what or where your pain originates except to say there are no nocioceptors (pain recepters) in subcutaneous fat.. period.

Ok well thanks I guess. I’m not looking for a diagnosis, just wondered if anyone else ever had that pain. I don’t really understand your response. So...

you said it "feels" like fat pain and not muscle or organ pain, I'm explaining that is not a thing. So...

But why are you being mean about it?

he/she didn't sound mean to me at all. They were just explaining that the pain wouldn't be coming from fat. You're reading too much into it. Which can sometimes happen when people communicate in writing (texts, emails, etc).

My guess is hunger pains combined with food detox. Many of the foodstuffs we eat are highly addictive. If you've removed these from your diet you may be detoxing. Just a guess.

Elvira, I have definitely had fat pain in my abdominal area. It seems to happen after I have done a lot of exercise, and it occurs below my navel.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
