One year post op health issue



Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

I had GS one year ago, absolutely no complications and no side conditions, this year has been amazing, I look and I feel great.

3 weeks ago I started feeling very bloated, with headaches and general weakness... I did a covid test then my blood test as well as salmonella, e coli and parasites, everything came clean. I take Probiotics and digestive enzymes, yet my stomach issues are still persisting. I get stomach ache after I eat, I get bloated, and my tummy started making some weird loud noises. I have to mention that fact that one month ago I did, out of curiosity (never had any issues with any foods), the food intolerances tests and I came out quite intolerant to wheat, lactose, eggs and chocolate. I eliminated all of them for 2 days now, but I still don't feel well.

Have you had anything similar? Due to covid I am working from home in a very small town with limited access to specialized doctors, I am just wondering if I should go and see a doctor in a proper health center...

Thank you and stay safe and in good spirits!

I would say yes go find a doctor something is goofy. I have became intolerant to a few foods also - chicken for me is a no Go

I find myself bloated if I eat carbs or carbonated diet soft drinks, so I have all but eliminated them from my diet. Does it happen when you eat certain types of foods?

I, like any others, developed both lactose intolerance AND gluten intolerance post op. Both presented themselves at different times at about 12 and 18 months post op.

Once I made dietary changes the symptoms went away. Don't give up and don't accept a brush off diagnosis until you've had it ALL worked up. I'm a Nurse Practitioner and I'll tell you that undiagnosed food allergies are very real and very harsh for many.
