Had vsg this past Tuesday still in severe pain. Anyone else?



Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals,

I have my vsg this past Tuesday. I’ve been in severe pain (8 on a 10) since surgery. If it’s not the gas pains still killing me (walking helps, but it’s still there) than the incisions (7 made) and muscle soreness are doing it. The doctor gave me oxycodone at home, which is helping minimal. Did anyone else vomit blood the night after surgery? I did, but my doctor said it was not unusual. Anyone else feel this amount of pain? If you did, when did it go away? Any other tips? Thank you

Hello, I feel your pain and yes I had RNY Sept 4th and was in terrible pain after surgery, but the good news it will get better. I promise you if you can keep it together for the next 30 days you will feel 100% better. Goodluck dear.

Thanks... I’m glad to know I’m not alone!! Rny must be more intense healing than sleeve...

Had revision surgery on 11/19 ,and the pain has some good days and some bad days. I take tylenol every 6 hours and rest as much as possible. One day at a time.

I also had my VSG surgery Tuesday and am in a lot more pain than I was in the hospital.
Gas pains are slowly tapering off but the incisions and muscle pain are awful, particularly upon getting out of bed.
I opted for no pain meds and am totally regretting that now. Although, I'm having a hard enough time swallowing the other medications I take.
I'm sorry it's not getting better yet but I'm hoping in a few days this will be a distant memory for both of us!
