New pain and bloating 3 weeks post op VSG



Recommended Posts

I’m 2 and a half weeks post op from my vsg and everything’s been going well. I didn’t have any pain or other complications but today is my 2nd day of purée. I only managed to get some eggs down but didn’t have any issues. A few hours later I started noticing tenderness around the right side of my stomach and now it’s actually starting to hurt even if I barely touch it. I also notice it’s starting to look swollen just on that side. I don’t want to panic but has anyone else had this or should I go to the ER if it continues?

What did it turn out to be? I’m 3 weeks post op and having new pain and soreness that I didn’t have before. I’m on 5th day of soft foods.

Luckily it was nothing. All my labs were normal and I haven’t had any issues since then!! I hope your pain and soreness goes away soon as well😊

Yes, it resolved in about 4 days and I'm feeling great now. I talked to the nurse practitioner from my clinic and she said it was an internal popped stitch. It can be common if you do too much too soon.

How did they know is was a popped stitch??? Did you get some kind of study done to determine it was exactly that? Just curious, and also very happy it has been resolved.

No study done, In the largest incision, there was a pucker that it now gone. The NP determined this based on the location of my pain and when the pain increased. This was all done over the phone. I did have a follow up appt with her a week after we spoke on the phone and by then the pain was gone.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
