New to the forum, had surgery Monday



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I’m new to this forum.  I just had RNY on Monday, and I’m having terrible gas pains.  I did pass gas inthe hospital eventually, but now I’m home and it feels like it’s building up a lot.  

Hopefully this is someone normal and I don’t need to be as worried as I am yet.  


I’m happy to have found this community and I’m looking forward to learning and sharing experiences with everyone.

I was surprised by where I felt that gas pains, and how it came back on day 4 or 5 after being fine on day 3! It was in my right shoulder and HOLY MOLY it hurt! I actually ended up taking a pain pill and going to bed early. It was gone the next day, so phew! This too shall pass...congratulations!!

I had my VSG last week and, as someone who never had gas before, the gas I now get caught in my chest is rough. I have been taking Pepto and Prilosec OTC which gives me pain relief but the gas is still there. I shared this with my doctor and they said it shouldn't be a forever thing but just momentary. I'm exactly 8 days out and still have the gas bubble in my chest.

Bless your heart I can imagine. I deal with a bad rotator cuff aleady. I am waiting on Insurance approval for my bypass so hoping for sometime in November.

I'm so happy for you. I'm having RNY hopefully in November, still waiting on insurance approval. I hope you are feeling better.
