Good luck in your recovery.

Best for me when I was dealing with gas from surgery, was walking. Unfortunately the "surgery gas" pain are horrible and beside some pain meds, nothing can be done to help them. Unfortunately it ,at take some time for the body to absorb the gas.

The abdominal gas pain - the gas trapped inside our intestines, we eventually get it out (farting or burping lol) but the gas they used during surgery to be able to see inside us, is trapped in our body, outside of the intestines, and that gas can travel even to our shoulders (mine did) causing horrible pain.

First 24 hours were the worse, but depends how fast your body can deal with that, it may take fro 1-3 days.

Thank you so much for this info H.A.L.A B. I've just begun to fart! I had strange pain in my shoulders, too. I've been stiff getting around today. I have a walker that's been helping me walk up and down the hallways in my building. I really appreciate this info. Take care and be well x0x0x

Be well and happyKami

Thank you so much, Tidgel. I have a question you've probably answered million times. Is it normal to have a lot of pain on my right side?

Be well and happyKami

Hi TattooDoll-I didn't have the Sleeve procedure so I am not sure if that is common or not but with my RNY, I had gas buildup that caused pain but it dissipated after a few days. Hope you are feeling better!

Hi Dusty,

I'm feeling better than last week. I've been trying to do several laps around my hallways in my building every day. Some days have been better than others. My wounds still hurt, especially on my right side near my breast. I've lost a few pounds! THank you for the good vibes

Be well and happyKami
