I had my bypass on 03.17.21. The pain has been intense. It was manageable the first couple weeks home but seems to be worse now. It is getting to the point that walking to the bathroom or making something to drink is painful. I feel like I am being stabbed. I am still on pureed foods for another couple weeks. I have been very careful and would have thought the pain would be less. Very frustrating since I am the type of person who is always on the go. Anyone else have this issue? Should I be worried and contact the NP?

I would probably call the NP - if nothing else, for peace of mind.

Contact your medical team. If anything seems odd or wrong for you, is causing pain or has prolonged symptoms always call your doctor. Your pain should not be worsening.

I am finally pain free!! My NP told me it is normal to have this much pain due to the suture they do with your stomach muscle. She said once it is dissolved the pain will go away instantly. Next day no pain. I am starting to feel like myself once again. Down 31 lbs and counting.
