Post op gastric bypass Pain



Recommended Posts

It’s been a week after gastric bypass surgery and I’m on thick liquids not taking pain meds much anymore but every time I drink or have my Soups my stomach hurts a lot. Protein Shakes are really sweet and hurt my stomach even Water and popsicles. Plus I’m lactose intolerant and sensitive to corn ingredients so I stay away from those so I know that’s not where the pain is coming from. Anyone else have pain after eating or drinking post op?

Warm drinks are often more soothing in general. Try room temp Water & even warming your shakes a little too. Anything too cold would make my tummy sort of clench - can be a lot for our healing tummy to cope with.

But if the pain persists or you think it’s more pain than you should have, have a chat with your surgeon.

Our taste & sometimes smell can become more sensitive to certain things. I didn’t enjoy the shakes either. Had one a day & then ate Soups (broths, consommés, etc.) for other ‘meals’.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
