Hello

I had my revision to gastric bypass March 20th, 2024. The pain is minimal when moving or sitting. I’ve been able to stop pain meds. What I do feel has me so worried even though I’m pretty sure it’s not anything terrible. Whenever I drink fluids I get a pain in my lower abdomen. Not terrible but I feel it and when I do I get nervous. I have my post op appt next Friday. Should I wait to see if it subsides or do I call the surgeon Monday?

TIA for your answers.

I wish I could help you. I had sleeve and did not have much pain at all. Mh abs were sore like I did crunches. As I am reading this though I am thinking my post op if I do decide to do conversion to SADI is going to be extra confusing because I won’t really have many people to ask if I have a concern like yours. And I am a super anxious person with medical stuff to begin with so that’s not going to be a good combo . I may Just ask them to keep me an extra day so I know what pain is okay before I go.

Right after my surgery, I found cold or cool liquids borderline painful to ingest, so I took in liquids that were either warm or room temperature. Have you tried changing that variable?

If it feels like it’s not right to you it couldn’t hurt to call and run it past the surgeon. I know alot of us don’t want to be annoying or a bother but they are getting paid and awful lot for the surgery and post op care is part of that service you are paying for. They should be able to tell you what to watch for.

My surgery gastric bypass surgery was on March 19th. Taking in liquids is still a little difficult but better than the 1st 2 days.

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
