stomach pain 2 weeks post op



Recommended Posts

Hi all, I had gastric sleeve on 23 September 2021. I have had stomach pain all day. It is a pretty sharp cramp. Called my doctor's office and they said just take the mylanta and famotadine and see if it settles. I had Beans last night, mashed in the food processor. could this be just bad gas pain? Mind you, I had plenty of gas last night from the beans, does this mean no more beans for me? that my stomach is rejecting this particular food. I have had canned refried beans and no pain, but yesterday I made a pot myself and put them in the food processor.

It could be gas pain, or it could be your nerves that were cut regenerating.

Also, I had MASSIVE pain from Beans once I was allowed whole ones, even chewed to a paste. Puréed with some of the bean broth? No problem. But I mean puréed puréed, not just chopped up. I felt every one of those freaking beans move the entire way through my digestive tract. It was horrifying.

Exactly, what the nurse said. I pureed those Beans in the food processor, so they were paste. I think it is gas also, but man, it's knocked me off my feet today! Thank you for your insight.

Yah... I actually added the bean broth (I make my own Beans, not canned) to make it more liquidous, like I would for enfrijoladas if I could eat tortillas. Were these canned beans? Somewhere on this site (recently!) I posted a recipe for "not-refried" beans that start from dry.

Not necessarily. food that you don't tolerate now may be tolerable in a few months (o longer).

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      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!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      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.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      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 🥲
