Hello Anonymus, I had the same surgery 3 months ago, and I´m still with a leak in my stomach. been fed by a nose tube for 9 weeks, but this did nt solve much of the problem. A stent is one of the options to fix this, but not the smartest, according to a couple of doctos i have talked to, it is easy to put it on, but a real pain to remove it from the stomach, but i think it is easier in the states than in my country. I have to fly to another country to have it fixed :(. but there is one thing i dont understand in your post, your daughter is with the leak for 15 months???????

See my comments of February 11th above regarding belching! Domperidone or Domerid works very well.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question but this is something that you would need to ask your doctor. The answer will be based on other medications you are on and your general heath status.

Good luck!

In regards to that 'RIPPING-SENSATION FELT WHILE BENDING ETC" I am currently experiencing that 6 weeks after having the gastric sleeve surgery here in Auckland New Zealand. I have lost about 12 kgs since being discharged from hospital.I was so worried about the ripping pain I was experiencing I went to my G.P and asked for anti-biotics which I am taking now. But since reading that its due to weakened stitches I'm so happy and relieved and suppose will have to bear it and wait it out, have been taking panadol and tramadol for pain relief etc..This is a great forum!!thankyou all.

Hello all,
I had the surgery done two weeks ago, and everything was going OK until yesterday. I've had unbelievable gas pain, and I have tried everything buy nothing seems to work, if someone out there can share a solution I would greatly appreciate it. I have taken Beno, Gas-X, Maalox, they all seem to work for a couple of hours but then the pain comes back with a vengeance.

Never had that, but try some activated charcoal from the pharmacy. Might help. Are you a 'swallower' in that you swallow air with your food? Try to become conscious of that and exclude any air in your mouth before you swallow. Avoid gas producing foods one need hardly say! Stay off the beans and legumes for a bit until things settle for you. Domperidone or Domerid will help if you take it about half an hour before you eat, it will make you belch, and don't be afraid to encourage that and belch away until you feel a bit less bloated. DO NOT do any activity after a meal for at least half an hour until your food settles and you have belched away! Then maybe a short walk to encourage belching and flatulence as well. It will help. Good luck with it!!

I am so grateful to find this thread on the sleeve gastrectomy surgery. I am leaning towards this option and trying to find all the information I can about it. Thank you to everyone for submitting their experiences!
