Pain on left side stomach and back



Recommended Posts

It could be something as simple as gas (colic) or a strained muscle. Try a heat pad & see if it helps. Any associated temperature, vomiting, nausea or tenderness in the area? If so a visit to a medical centre may be best. Same if the pain persists or isn’t alleviated by the heat pad.

Hello everyone! I got my surgery 11/23 and I’m getting pain on my left side by my stomach radiates to my back. The pain does come and go, is this normal?

I am having similar but mine is in my left shoulder. I was not aware that gas could settle there so i have been paying attention to when it comes and goes, i am pretty sure mine is gas pains. Once i am able to pass the gas, i notice the pain goes away but then comes back when i consume my liquids if i am not sure to slow waaaay down on the consumption rate. If you feel uncomfortable about what it is i would definitely contact the Dr and see what they recommend.

I used to have that left side pain and a burning sensation, my team explained that the bigger incision since its deeper it is stitched using a muscle and that some movements cause that pain. After that made sense to me, I do not even feel it.

Do ask your team to make sure and track any other changes to be safe.

No other symptoms, it does go away with gas relief medication, I see my doctor tomorrow and see what they say!

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
