It still hurts to eat and drink



Recommended Posts

I'm 2 days post gastric sleeve bypass. Eating/drinking hurt so much that I had to stay in the hospital an extra day. Today is better with very small sips, but if I forget and take a "normal" sip it still hurts. I'm assuming this will stop, but you are 12 days and still feeling it. Have you talked with your Dr. about it?

I was in pain the first 16 days after surgery. You shouldn't be eating anything at this stage, and you should try drinking warm liquids. I found that helped A LOT.

Not all surgeons require the same regime. I was given the choice of Soup or custard in the hospital the day after surgery. I wasn't able to manage it but the lady in the next room did

food varies for everyone. I would try 1oz of liquid and drink 15 minutes apart... time yourself if you need to. And like @SleeveDiva2022said try warm liquids. Also a heating pad on and off every 20 minutes may help by shooting any inflammation you have going on. Sorry your going through this!

Yea. I was told that if I had issues at any stage it may be helpful to return to the previous stage. Maybe you still have a lot of inflammation and should just stick to liquids for now.

I had a miserable time the first day (had to stay over in hospital a second night) and a hard time the second day, but then it got much better. My feeling, if this isn't going away by tomorrow, call your Dr.

You lost 16# in one week?? That's amazing. Losing weight is non-linear, you should expect some ups and downs.

Yes it happens all the time. Trust the process, do what your team says and stay off the scales. Easier said than done i know. Read the back pages on here of the 3 week stall

You'll get told again and again that weightloss is up and down. The ups suck but the great thing about the surgery is the downs are coming back!
