Gas a year and a half out. . .

Recommended Posts

Morning!! So I had my RNY in May 2020. Every thing has went as expected!! But now all of a sudden about 2 weeks ago I develop gas - horrible horrible painful gas with ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING I EAT OR DRINK!!!! Water I get gas, yogurt I get gas, cottage cheese I get gas, diet Snapple I get gas, tator tot hotdish = gas, so on and so forth. I literally started the journal but everything was causing it!!! Anyone else had this problem and what did you do?

Maybe you have a tummy bug? Probably best to see a dr though. Probiotics might help too

I haven't heard of this. It may or may not be related to your surgery. I'd contact your PCP. Looks like it could be due to any number of things:

It doesn't seem like it would be related to your bariatric surgery this far after. Maybe you should see your gastroenterologist for an endoscopy to see what's going on. Have you tried Gas-X or anything?

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
