I'm just wondering if anyone with fibromyalgia has had gastric sleeve surgery. My biggest concern is the amount of pain after surgery.

Just anecdotal, so please take this within context and not a promise:

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, pretty classic symptoms and all. Regardless of the label, I dealt with a lot of unexplained pain and low pain tolerance levels. Whatever it is.

After my surgery, there was a TON of pain. I whined on here, I got through it...and now, I'm doing TONS better. It changes, like some days due to body changes, my muscles will hurt super bad. The more I get my nutrients back through the stages, and the better I feel. One of my worst fibro symptoms was a lack of balance and dizziness-which has drastically improved.

The surgery is basically going to kick your body's butt and almost force it to reprogram and change.

I'm glad I got it and I'm seeing some severe symptoms changing for me.

Hope that helps.
