Hi all! So I am 20 days post op and wanted some people to chat with that are in my same boat. For the past 4 days my left side has seemed to be getting worse! This has been the only pain I was really having since after week 1 and I was starting to feel better but all the sudden it has gotten worse. I did just read that at day 14 you reach your peak of "most swollen stomach" time. Has anyone had the pain get worse around this time? And if so, when did yours go away? Besides that I am doing pretty good. I am a little constipated which is hard for me bc I used to go to the bathroom at least twice a day! I have only had trouble swallowing about
a handful of times and lets just say the first time was scary! & it is pretty painful so I just have to keep reminding myself to pay attention and chew chew chew! Lets just say Im so sick of chewing!
I have lost 13lbs though so thats nice! I have been able to eat most things as long as I CHEW for a long time. Still no breads, steaks, burgers, spicy foods, raw veggies, and other things I was told not to try yet. But best thing is I have NOT had any REFLUX!
So that is super exciting. I still am taking 1 40mg Omeprazole a day because of my Barrets Esophagus. Oh and the weirdest side effect I am having is with my teeth!!! Not sure why but its freaking me out because I have always had such nice and easy to take care of teeth! They have always been sensitive to cold and hot but since surgery it has been PAINFUL to brush them
I mean the tooth paste burns my teeth so bad that I now have to stand in the shower to brush my teeth with the water on and spraying into my mouth while brushing. Also syrup felt worse then the toothpaste! I am the only one with this crazy weird side effect?
Well I look forward to hearing from people!
