5 weeks post op: something doesn't feel quite right



Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I had a revision from band to sleeve on 3/26/21. I'm on stage 4 and had some ground up gyro meat for dinner last night that was a little dry, but I did OK with it. Today I feel "off". My head has a dull ache, I've had off and on dull ache in my stomach/chest, and when I took my swallow able Multivitamin, the underside of my jaw hurt a little.

What did I do? Is it just indigestion? Any ideas before I call my doc? Anyway, in the meantime I went back to just shakes to let my stomach calm down a bit. Thanks in advance for answering.

I think it's hard for us, non-medical professionals, or even if some people are medical professionals, to say what it might be. If something "doesn't feel right" I always find it's best to call your doctor, especially since you're just recovering from surgery. That's why they get paid the big bucks!

ABSOLUTELY call your surgeon. You never know what could be happening, and though I do not know your biological sex, women tend to feel heart conditions differently than men do (I don't mean to scare you) and literally anything from the nose down can signify something different for everyone. So far, this sounds like it may just be your esophagus or pouch is irritated or over-worked, but you don't want to take a chance at it being something more serious, or maybe even something easily remedied that lasts longer than it should for not calling your office. Wishing you the best!

Hope you're feeling better or at least spoke to the doc about possible issues.
