Ok so it's the morning after and it's been pretty horrible for me had a great deal of pain in my cuts abdomen and shoulder and chest pain I had morphine which helped but seemed to make me unable to urinate for ages which was really uncomfortable I have a question

I've been able to burp a lot I've found after drink I'll burp as if I'm going to have reflux but nothing comes up is it normal to be burping this much ? Will it settle ?

Ps just managed some porridge and a cuppa tea and some apple juice all went down fine but the pain is ridiculous and the morphine is fixing one problem to cause another

welcome to the wrapped club!

What you are experiencing is normal. I know it feels weird and can sometimes feel like a stuck burp too. If you can burp at all that is a plus. More people are able to burp now a days since they started doing what is called a floppy wrap.

Walking is the best thing to help with the pain and to also help getting all those body functions going again.

Take care,

I've been burping a lot it's as if the reflux reflex is still there and I burp and where I'd burp before that's when I'd bring up all the reflux now it's just a burp which is a lot better hoping the burping calms down when my body readjusts i was burping and refluxi g for 6 months straight about 80 times a day most days so I'm thi king the burping is almost like a habit to my body now as the burping is still not very nice after every meal and drink

The first day back from being in the hospital I was shocked at how painful/miserable/nauseous I felt.

Trust me, it will get better.

Easier said than done, I know, but baby yourself, pretty much literally.

Have someone pick you up some of that grape-flavored baby tylenol in liquid form. Not only will it ease the pain, but it is also delicious, and it is not a pill (pills I remember hurting).

You will get better. Not today. But probably a little tiny bit tomorrow, and then a little tiny bit the next day, etc. It is a slow recovery, but just remember what you did it for. You had problems enough to have the surgery -- and it's clear from your description of your symptoms that you did -- then IT IS WORTH IT.

With your misery now you are defeating that miserable feeling you've had for far too long. It is a slow recovery, but YOU WILL fully recover, and you will feel better than you have ever felt before.

Stay tough! Recover now. Make yourself relax. This recovery is a test of your character and your resolve. As miserable as you may currently feel, YOU ARE LUCKY you were able to get this surgery. Relax your body and your mind. You can do it!!!!

My dr. gave me lortab liquid, which is a combination of tylenol and hydrocordone. Good stuff.

I didn't have major pain after the 2nd day except when I got these trapped gas bubble things, yikes. I have found orut that if I feel one coming on, I try my darndest to burp, even if it seems I can't, and it will bleed some of the pressure off. Boy I'm glad I found out I could do that.

When I was in the hospital overnight, my pain was mostly in the abdomen when I stood up straight to walk around.

I didn't have a bowel movement till yesterday (day 6).. I'd recommend some prune juice early on, and if you don't have anything after 4-5 days I'd consider a laxative (which I used) called Senna. It comes in a little fibrous pill that doesn't taste all that bad when chewed up. It certainly got things moving within about 6 hours for me.
