Has anyone experienced any stomach contractions/spasms after their surgery? I’m 3 weeks post op DS and experiencing some spasms.

I’m less than a week from my SADI and I get stomach spasms when I have certain things. Water and broth is fine, liquid Tylenol and Jello though both trigger it. It only lasts maybe 5-10 seconds then subsides.

I just assumed that I’m still healing and that it will go away.

Mine actually last for hours through out the night, Not sure what triggers it though because I’ve eaten and drank the same stuff and on some days it won’t happen. I appreciate your reply!

Hours! Oh goodness I’m sorry to hear that. Did your surgeon have anything to say about it?

I’m actually in the ER right now because my eyes have turned yellow and my skin.

Hope everything is okay! The yellowing sounds like your liver. Prayers and healing thoughts sent your way!

Thank you so much! I’m feeling much better now. My doctor said the yellowing of the eyes is due to some trauma to my liver from the surgery and it’ll go away eventually. I was pretty dehydrated as well so they gave me some potassium and fluids through an IV.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
