Hey everyone! I had my gastric bypass on 8/4/2020 and I am having a lot of pain on my right side it feels like I pulled a muscle, but I only hurt when standing up, sitting down, or bending. Does anyone know how long this will last? It started three days post op and makes it difficult to take care of personal care. It feels like a burning pain with movement, but I’m able to walk with no pain.

I had a small amount of pain from the largest laparoscopic incision. This is because they have to cut muscle and needed a large hole to extract the gallbladder. It felt much better after a week. I actually had two laparoscopic surgeries (same incisions) in a period of 4 days. I recovered really well from the first surgery after two days with very little pain. The second surgery (SADI-S) took a bit longer to recover from.

I had my surgery on the same day as you! And I actually called the hospital in the middle of the night the other day because of intense pain on the right side of my belly button. The doctor said it’s normal that once you get home and are doing more and are in less pain meds, that the pain get worse for a bit. Have you incorporated any Protein Drinks yet? I just started on Protein2O the other day, and Premier Protein yesterday. I feel like it’s speeding up the healing process already. Feel better soon!

I have been slacking on the Protein. I am having a difficult time getting fluids down. I haven’t had a hunger queue since surgery, and hours will pass before I realize that I may need to at least drink something. Hopefully this pain leaves quickly. I have noticed that hot Water from the shower allows me to move a bit more. Thank you for responding and I hope you are feeling better.

Hi Steph5333,
Same here, I am 4 days postop and was discharged 2 days after surgery. Once at home, pain from ny belly button and my right side increased. My doc tells me the first two weeks this is normal. Who knows. Keep me posted and I hope we both get a speedy recovery. I just want to be able to sleep and walk without any pain.

I’m on my 9th date post op and my pain and gas pains just got better yesterday. I thought it would never go away. The pain was keeping in up all night . Hope you feel better soon . My incisions still hurt but they are bearable .

Fortunately I didn’t have any pain as far as drinking and eating. My pain came from pulling the muscle they put the stitch in.

Hi All, I’m 2 days post op. Still feeling lots of pain and bloating. I was able to drink half a Protein Shake and bottle of Water. But the gas is treacherous. Any suggestions?

My surgeon said chewable gas x was ok try asking surgeon
