    IMHO the more you walk, the quicker it resolves. Also you can ask your doctor what he would recommend for the gas. I seem to remember people taking something. But yeah, it gets better by 2 weeks out. And it's very common in all abdominal surgeries, not just VGS
    [I]HW: 240 lbs SW: 199 lbs GW: 140 lbs

    1 MO = 167.0 2 MO = 156.4 3 MO = 148.4 4 MO = 140.6
    5 M) = 136.0 6 MO = 130.0
    1 YR = 122.0 2 YR = 140.00 2.5 YR = 139
    Happy with my weight; happy with my size; over-the-moon with my health!

    They say walking is the best cure for the gas pain. Are you at the mushy food stage? That's where I was at 3 weeks. It WILL get better. Plus you WILL lose an amazing amount of weight.

    Thank you for your answers, that makes me feel a bit better. Last night I was in true pain in my upper stomach with sharp pain. I’m so glad I’ll someday be better. At 3 weeks my nutritionist has me trying bits of eggs and fish like tuna chewed to liquid practically. I dream of taking a real bite of something instead of a pea size bite. Again thank you. So I won’t always be in pain.

    I, at almost 7 years out, dream of getting full sooner! Before it was automatic, now I have to be so careful of what I eat.

    Right? I find it is becoming quite frightening how much it takes to feel full now. Jesus, grant me some self control!

    The friend of mine has the same problem. The ebst way to solve the problem is to visit your doctor. there can be a lot of reasons why such thing happens to you.
