So I had my gastric band fitted yesterday afternoon, I was very scared as I have never had an op before but the staff were lovely and talked me through everything, had my general anestethic and woke up in recovery, was a little bit sore in the shoulder (presuming trapped gas from the op) but apart from that had no pain at all just tender where the wounds are.
Woke up at 4am this morning in pain with gas trapped in my shoulders and chest, been fighting with it all day and it is really painful.
What did everyone else do to relieve this? I have peppermint tea which gives a small relief and have been walking about a little bit but Hasnt worked too well so far.
I no I am very early in recovery but any advice would be much appreciated.
Iv been given soluble solpadol to take and blood thinner injections.
Not the greatest but hey ho
