How did you know your sleeve was leaking.

Recent experience an attack and fell on my stomach. I am 33 days post op. I feel weak and have some uncomfortable soreness on the left side of my stomach. I can hold down water but vomited up puréed chicken 2 tsp. I think it's just cause my nerves but wondering if my sleeve could be leaking. I don't have a fever just feel weak.

a leak after wls will make you feel like you are dying. You will have fever snd be very ill. You will be going to the emergency room instead of posting on the internet.
