Good Evening,

I am new to this site so firstly hello. Secondly I just had Gastric Sleeve surgery in March 25,2021. The pain has become fairly minimal, but sometimes I have a random stomach cramp. Sometimes it will feel like it’s a hunger pain and somethings it’s a quick sharp pain. Since I’m barely a week passed is this still normal ? I don’t want to check the internet anymore and make myself worried about a leak when I don’t have any other symptoms. I would appreciate any help. I’m the only person I know who’s had this type of surgery so this community is all I have for knowledge. Thank you for anyone whom can assist me. 😊

I had surgery on the 30th I also have that same feeling.. sometimes I think it’s gas.. but really I don’t know. Maybe it’s just our body getting use to it.

I tell myself the same thing it’s just my stomach adjusting to the change. Thank you for that. It’s nice to know I am not alone. 😊

I had my surgery 11/26/2020. The first couple weeks I had so many spasms it felt like I a Alien Child was growing/ kicking inside me... lol. It does get better once your stomach gets adjusted to the change.

I had a few random pains and spasms during the first couple of weeks after surgery. They didn't stick around and it wasn't constant or accompanied by vomiting/uncontrolled nausea.

There are a lot of potential reasons for discomfort in those first couple weeks that are (typically) not serious: incision healing, stomach acid, gas, constipation, a stitch getting tugged, tummy inflammation, drinking too fast...and probably more that I'm not think of.

All that said...If you are worried contact your program. I called my program nurse twice in the first couple weeks to get reassurance that my discomfort wasn't an indication of something serious and it was great to get reassurance from a professional.

Hang in there! It gets a lot easier after the first couple weeks.

Spot on. I had my sleeve 3-29-2021 and it's just shy of a week and each day is a bit better. But man, everything you mentioned in the second paragraph is spot on.

Getting used to not having energy and being patient because of no energy is challenging as I had started to light jog and do pretty intense lifting right before surgery. Gotta build all that endurance back up after healing.

Looking forward to living healthier.
