Gallstones? I'm currently worried I may have one; woke up with exactly that kind of pain. Had that exact feeling I couldn't stand up. I'll follow the responses here.

I am having similar pain (stomach and back) that comes and lasts for hours then eventually goes away. I saw the surgeon and when he pressed on my gallbladder it hurt. I’m getting an ultrasound Tuesday to check for stones.

Definitely ask your surgeon about the pain!

Have you contacted your team. I don’t think new pain that is so severe you can’t stand up at 13 weeks out is very common. They should have someone after hours to advise you.

I read about this before my surgery back in November 2021. Gallstone formation is a known complication due to fast weight loss.

Sending you lots of healing energy. Let us know if you are doing the cholecystectomy.

I will have my 3 mo follow-up soon and I will discuss this cos you can take something to prevent the gallstone formation.

It's called Actigall (urisodiol - I might not have the right spellings). I was prescribed this right after my surgery to take for 6 months. I haven't had gallbladder issues so far, knock on wood!

Don’t wait for your appointment. Call their office today. If they don’t respond and the pain is terribly bad go to the ER.

If I were You I would go to the ER. I am not a doctor but that just doesn’t sound right.

As in you are a student? If you miss a class, can’t you make it up? You won’t be able to focus and pay attention anyways if you are in that much pain.

Yes I’m a student. It takes hours in the ER and the pain isn’t as bad right now but I’m going to get my mom to take me later

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
