Left shoulder pain, gas x doesnt help!



Recommended Posts

7 days post OP from the sleeve. Had shoulder pain on day 1, then not again until yesterday- it came one time. Gas x helped yesterday but today it hasn't helped at all. I have had this shoulder pain most of the day. It goes away briefly but that's all. Up until yesterday, I was still getting sternum discomfort but that's gone. Is it really normal to have left shoulder pain show up on day 7 and not leave with gas x???? PLEASE ANSWER, as my mind is going to the worst. I DID NOT HAVE A HERNIA REPAIR. I can kind of feel it in my neck too right above shoulder

I've had shoulder pain on and off since my surgery and a lot of it is because the dimensions of my neck/shoulders have changed and my body hasn't adjusted to my "new" shape in terms of how I position myself when I sleep (I was one of those people that didn't really have a neck before and now I do, and I don't think my body's muscle memory knows that yet.)

      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 🥲

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
