Anxiety 6 weeks gastric sleeve post op



Recommended Posts

I have had a difficult time with pain after eating yet felt like I was starving. The Protein Drinks were making me gag and I stopped drinking them. I knew I had to get Protein so I began drinking Fairlife and eating Oikos 15 gram protein yogurts as well as canned chicken. I eat very small amounts of food but I'm just wondering when will the pain go away? I feel most of the pain is at the stomach entry. I CHEW CHEW CHEW too. Even liquids hurt. I keep a lot of ice packs in the freezer because I need it on my stomach all day. Feeling anxious. Any advice is appreciated.

I'd let your clinic know. I would think by six weeks out you shouldn't be feeling pain. If nothing else, it'd be peace of mind.

Thank you. So it is unusual. I will make an appointment. Someone said Kaiser makes the entry more restricted to prevent filling smaller stomach, but I haven't seen much on web about it.

it could be that - or if this started fairly recently, it could be a stricture (overgrown scar tissue at the entry to your stomach). Strictures aren't very common with sleeve (much more common with bypass), but they're definitely not unheard of. If it's that, it should be an easy fix.

      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.
