I was sleeved on Apr. 23rd. It was done laparoscopically. I had elevated liver enzymes prior to the procedure was was given the ok for surgery.
The first few days of recovery were fine other than some gas pains. My overall pain level was minimal; I had no vomiting and did not take any pain meds after leaving the hospital. I was there for 24 hours after surgery.
Eight days post op I went back to work at a desk job but was more comfortable standing. I wore an undergarment that day that helped to hold in my bloated belly, but I was comfortable.
After a few hours at work I noticed that the action of sitting then standing caused a pain on the right side of my abdomen that felt similar to a sore muscle.
I also feel a cramping pain in what feels like my stomach several times a day. It isn’t every time I eat or drink, or when I move, it seems to be random.
Other than these symptoms, and fatigue, I have felt fine. No vomiting, no diarrhea, my protein intake hasn’t been great (30-50gms daily) and my water intake could also be better (about 30oz per day). But I do worry about a damaged liver and the random pain.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
