Hello! I had gastric sleeve Monday March 1st. Recovery seems a bit rough at this point. Having trouble keeping things down so my Dr. made me switch back to Clear Liquids, waters and SF Gatorade only. I keep getting these horrible horrible gas/air pains in my stomach and chest. Any tips and tricks to a smoother recovery?

I am sorry that you are having a rough time with your recovery so far. The most important thing you can do is just absolutely 100% follow everything your doctor tells you that you are supposed to do. I know some of it can seem stupid or pointless but they tell you to do it for a reason. The clear liquid diet part is rough to do; I'm sorry you have to go back to that.

I think the best thing you can do for your gas/air pains is to be active. I don't mean you need to go out and start playing basketball or training for a marathon. Just make sure you are getting up and walking around often enough. The movement of your body helps to get all that air out of you quicker.

Anyway, congratulations on having your surgery! Even though you are a little miserable now, I promise you that it is worth it. Stick with it and welcome to this community!! Good luck! You got this! 😁

I had gas pains after as well. Moving helps eliminate this. Walk around the house etc.
def do small sips. Follow your Dr orders always helps. Good luck and welcome to the club
