So I have a few friends that did the sleeve (I'm 3 weeks out) and I've been telling them my left side hurts alot especially when getting up/moving. They both had the same pain apparently the largest incision where the stomach is pulled from.....1 friend 2 years later still has some pain the other 5 years out and is fine now. So my question is how long did it take ypu to be pain free if you had this same issue? TiA

I didn’t have any incision pain but I would think it would resolve after a few months at least. two years out if I still had pain I would be asking my dr to make sure that everything healed correctly (have they mentioned it at their followup visits?). I have been hanging out around here for over a year and I haven’t heard of anyone else mention pain that far out I don’t think. Maybe others will say differently but It can’t hurt to give a quick call and make sure that’s typical or at least mention at their next follow up.

It really should resolve shortly. I think for most people it’s more like a few weeks or a month. Of course I have seen some it lasted a little longer.

Right the outer incisions are good but it's inside that's causing pain. Hoping some others will share their experiences [emoji120]

I had it for a few months, eventually it would be only when I turned over on my side in bed. Then one day i noticed it was gone. Healing...

It took about two months to be rid of the pain. I had pain near one of my incision sites on the left side of my abdomen. I told my surgeon about it and he checked it out and said that I had a seroma. (Build up of water). Water clot? He said the pain/water would be dispersed and it would get better. Seromas are not uncommon after major surgery.

If you have pain please check back in with the surgeon.

I guess I am a lucky one then.....I had no incision pain and no problems or complications at all. That being said I "think" I am lactose intolerant now tho because if I drink milk or eat dairy I get really really sick. I had no issue with that before surgery but do now after surgery. But surgery itself no problems.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
