Pain after gastric sleeve surgery
Pain control after gastric sleeve surgery
Different individuals respond differently to pain after gastric sleeve surgery based on their pain tolerance. You may feel no or mild pain on the first day of surgery.
During the first days after surgery, you may feel a general feeling of pain, burning, and irritation at the surgical sites. This feeling of pain can be stronger and more severe, especially in the place of the largest wound where the surgeon removed part of the stomach.
Patients often experience the greatest pain between the third and sixth day after gastric sleeve surgery because they usually become more active and have to get out of bed and walk according to the instructions given by the surgeon.
Pain is easier to control in its early stages. When the pain becomes severe, you will need more pain medication to control the pain. This is why it is recommended to start controlling pain in the early stages or even before you start feeling pain. Pain control after the operation is mainly done using painkillers via serum because they usually work faster than oral painkillers. So don’t wait until the pain becomes unbearable.
The pain should subside and subside each day. By the second month of recovery, patients should not feel much pain and the doctor will likely stop prescribing pain medications.
If you continue to suffer from pain, you should definitely consult your doctor.
