I had gastric bypass surgery about 15 months ago. Two weeks after surgery I had my gall bladder removed and spent a week in the hospital with dehydration and pancreatitis. I have had that same stomach pain a couple other times since pancreatitis. Last week as I live by myself I had to call an ambulance as the pain in stomach was so severe. They did blood work and said my pancreais enzymes were elevated a little. Gave me pain pills and sent me home.

My sister underwent gastric bypass in December 2009 and died a month later. Immediately after surgery, she began having stomach pains and regurgitating. She would even throw up after consuming 1/2 ounces of liquid. Once readmitted she never got a chance to leave the hospital. They ran several tests but to no avail. Her condition deteriorated day by day. They punctured several holes around her abdomen to drain pus from the abscesses that formed.
I can't say I have low energy because that is what I majorly regained after surgery, however I as well have severe stomach pains which become so painful at times I won't eat... yes I know bad choice however I do not want to increase the pain. At times carafate, stretching or areobics ease the pain a bit. I also experience extreme nasuea, no appetite, and other matters including MAJOR insomnia .

I think medication becomes less and less gradually in case of persons improving steadily after bypass surgery. Ultimately no medication may be necessary after a particular point of time. Am I right?
This is to help chronic stomach pain sufferers I had Gastric bypass rRNY IN SEPT 1997, I have experienced on an off stabbing stomach pains ever since. The one thing that does work is 1 TBSP RAW APPLECIDER vinegar( must be raw and not processed) with about 4 oz of water drink and it quickly and it goes away instantly. Sometimes u have to repeat it several times a day but it has kept me able to work and live after surgery, I keep a mixture in a water bottle with me at all times.
hello, i am hoping that you can help me. I had gastric bypass RNY surgery 4 years ago and am often still vomiting even after all these years. The problem is that I have been having pain in the bottom right side of my stomach and it just does not feel quite right. The next appointment I have with my doctor is January 21st. I have searched the internet but I do not think that this is my appendix.
I am in the same boat. I am at the point of having my stomach removed or gastic bypass. However there is not enough info on it so my surgeon won't do the surgery. If you get any answers will you please contact me.
It doesn't just remove the weight or the fats in you but it only helps you lose them. With gastric bypass surgery or lap band surgery, you still have to control your food intake and there are also food restrictions. So to be able to succeed with weight loss surgery, one must really be prepared for a change his/her lifestyle.
I am so glad to have found this site since I thought I was going insane! I have the same thing as most of you have described - to me, it feels like a small object (snake, butterfly, etc.) moving back and forth and even flipping around in my left stomach/side area... I am 35 years old, single, on birth control, abstinent (no sex - CANNOT be pregnant).
Is it normal to have mild pains after a heart attack or stent? If so, do they typically go away after some healing time?
I just experienced the symptoms you described yesterday. After having lunch at a spicy/greasy chinese restaurant, I had a severe stomach cramp 1st, then felt dizzy and passed out in a grocery. I remembered I went in a nice dream for very short time then became concious again. I went to the bathroom and had soft stool. My blood pressure was so low that ambulance came and sent me to ER. After waiting for a doctor for more than 1 hour without anyone showing up, I decided to be discharged.
I have had health issues since my surgery that was 8 months ago. (2 months after giving birth to my 3rd child) Anyway... I wish you the best and if you ever want to talk let me know. I have been looking for someone else who has had BOTH surgerys to kind of compare to. Best wishes!
I never knew that it would be so crucial to get the right amount of calcium after my TT. I would have never had gastric bypass if I had known all the negative things that I know now 6 years later. I really makes absorption of medication tricky.....
I don't do the operation myself but I'm very familiar with it, and without doubt if I were going to have weight loss surgery, or refer someone for it, I'd choose lap band over bypass, for every possible reason: it's much safer, by far. The weight loss is not as rapid, but over time it's the same; in fact, there's more chance of long-term weight gain with bypass than with banding. It's adjustable; it's easily removeable, should that be necessary. It's cheaper.
I seriously think that after my weight loss I'm going to have to consider if I want a breast lift or a tummy tuck. My stomach after having a 9lb, 8 1/2lb, then a 10lb baby all within 3 1/2 years has really made a flab of my tummy.
emergency surfery to repair the severed artery in the muscle that the surgeon caused when he put in the scope to fix his first mess up........after surgery i went through several months of watery stool that was mostly stomach bile......then several months of constipation.....mother of three....all natural birth...no medicine.....well short story hurt worse to releive myself than to give birth. severe indigestion......gas....and heartburn has been my fate since....lost lots of wieght on purpose..
However, my bleeding became more and more heavier after seeing her. Just within 3 days later, my stomach is getting more and more painful till I visited the hospital and the Dr say there is nothing inside the womb any more. Why the gynae say there is nothing wrong to the baby but its gone after 3 days? The bloods continue to bleed after the m/c...and is non stopping.
bec, I'm sorry you're struggling with this. Your question is confusing, though. It sounds like you are in the early process of miscarrying. If you are, likely your cramps will get stronger until you actually miscarry. It doesn't sound like you have done that yet. Then, the cramping will stop almost completely but the bleeding will go on for awhile - likely as long as a long heavy period. Best wishes.
After every bowel movement she becomes hungry and she has about 9-10 bowel movements a day or more and looses 4-5 pounds a day.

At the age of 17 I was told by my endo that I at PCOS. I was put on Metform but after my gastric bypass I stoped it because my doctor no longer thought I needed it. Well to make a long story short. I lost my first child last Aug at 7 months. I didn't get a period until December. Then out of the blue again in March. March my period was NOT NORMAL. It was more like spotting not a period. But this is what happen..... 3 days spotting, 3.
That is an unbelievably irresponsible post from Erik. Clearly he doesn't know anything about which he posts. Gastric bypass surgery requires at least a 6 month period of time for preparation and to determine if the patient will be a good candidate. The surgery itself is extremely difficult both in the immediate post-op period and in the long term. It comes with multiple possible complications, and if someone can avoid it and achieve weight loss with other conservative approaches they should.
I posted a question about two years ago about my wife she is 37 y/o now that had total hysterectomy in 2007 and Gastric bypass in 2005.It was about pain she had under her navel that radiated to her back and come to find out it was adhesions from her prior surgeries and they were removed and she was better.

I have had a gastric bypass. Normally my nutritional levels are fine and are checked regularly by my IM physician. I have had problems with extremely low ferritin levels, though my Hgb and Hct are normal (low, but normal). A while back I had an enormous ovarian cyst that required a transfusion of blood and platelets. I'm not sure I quite ever recovered from that, hemodynamically. That would be my only guess as to the chronic anemia. I don't tolerate iron supplements very well.
