I had the sleeve done in January 2014. It was successful when you consider why I had it. Which was to be able to get pregnant along with some other health concerns. I didn't lose as much weight as one would think but again it wasn't my intention anyway. I just wanted to get to a healthier weight. My highest was 311 and the lowest I got to post sleeve was 206. I loved the way I felt and looked at that weight. After having a baby and falling into some bad old habits but more importantly suffering from severe acid.reflux and being dependent on antacids I decided to look into revision surgery. On Sept 17th I weighed 286 as of today I weigh 254. Things are for the most part going well and I no longer rely on antacids. That being said I am suffering on a daily basis from pain shooting from abdomen to back. It is below breast bones in center. I am most certain it is gas so I've been taking a lot of gas-x. I suffer from chronic pain from a previous injury so I take pain medication daily. I eat when I am hungry but throw up almost every time which happen the first time while I was training my mind and body until I learned the hard way what not to have. So I've just switched to Protein Drinks and Water. But the pain is almost unbearable and I'm wondering if anyone else had this happen to them?

Wow! So sorry you’re having to deal with this pain. When you say revision, did you have the gastric bypass or did they just tighten your sleeve? Also, do you still have your gallbladder?

If you had the RNY then you shouldn’t be throwing up. That’s something you need to tell your surgeon about. Also, the shooting pain from your stomach could definitely be your gallbladder or may just be gas. I had gas pain so bad after my surgery that I couldn’t taya deep breath for 2 weeks. My doctor put me on muscle relaxers to help and it did.

Heres one last thing I can think of.....you may have some milk intolerance that is causing the gas and pain. I found out I have it bad and the only Protein that doesn’t bother me is collagen protein. I hope this helps, but I would definitely call your doctor!
