Sleeve pain after ingesting fluids & Meds



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was recently sleeved on July 30th, 2020 (1 week post-op). This was my first surgery in my life. The main issue I'm experiencing right now is anytime I ingest anything (full liquid diet) it is super uncomfortable enter my sleeve. It makes it difficult to get my required fluids in everyday because that feeling is so uncomfortable. Please tell me if anyone has experienced this. I'm freaking myself out because I don't want to be sick or become malnourished or something. And it absolutely does not matter what temperature it is. I usually always do warm or room temp and it's the same feeling. I'm just scared and feeling like maybe I messed up getting this surgery.

I was very uncomfortable for the first couple of days, but that has "loosened up". I find that standing will help with that feeling and make sure that you are sipping, sipping, sipping. I was sleeved on 7/29, BTW.

I am 10 weeks postop and mine has finally started to subside some. I still get gas bubbles, even when I drink Water. It is totally annoying.

Congrats on your surgery.

It’s likely swelling from the surgery. I had terrible trouble swallowing anything for the first few days. My surgeon told me that was the cause & it would pass. It did.

Sip & wait before your next sip. I also used a straw to begin with so I wasn’t tempted to gulp large mouthfuls. Don’t stress about not getting all your fluids in to begin as the stress could tighten everything as well.

Of course, if it persists or gets worse contact your surgeon.

Hi I was sleeved 7/29, I find that watering down everything helps, walking a lot, and using gas x has helped me be able to drink more full liquids

And I think acid reflux, although it could be anything, really bad all day.. i can't even drink Water or take my medication without being in pain.. idk whats going on. Does anyone have any suggestions?
