Hi everyone. Well I'm about 20 days out from my wrap and am doing much better so far! I had to go back on my nexium though. Found out being off it was adding to the bloating and burning pain and right now I don't need any of that

I'm mostly on a regular diet now with my drs ok. Just have to take it slow

I do still get some pain in weird areas on my belly. Sometimes it feels like something is "stretching" and other times there's a feeling something is stuck on my wrap and then my back and shoulder pain will come back a little. It eventually subsides

Any ideas on the weird stomach pains? Can the pressure on my wrap change at times? I can still burp some. Of course no real reflux but I did have to go back on nexium for now so.....

Hi Nancy,
20 days ago you had major surgery on your stomach.  Your outsides have healed nicely, but your insides have a long way to go.  Just remember that your stomach was stretched, then wrapped around your esophagus and stitched there.  You'll have lots of strange feelings and pains as you heal and your upper GI tract adjusts to the changes that were made.
 
I'm glad to hear that things are going better.  I think you're wise to go back on the PPIs until your healing is further along. 
 
Glad to hear you've been cleared to try lots of different foods.  Just remember to stick with foods that can be chewed to a liquid. Take small bites and chew, chew, chew!
 
Happy eating,
Denise
