I had gastric bypass about a year ago and lost about 120 pounds. But I am always having stomach pains. Always when I wake up in the morning. Usually throughout the day, but I can't seem to find any food pattern. Sometimes I have stomach pains that are so bad it hurts my back and chest. It kind of feels like gas pains but it lasts for days and I've tried every OTC medicine I could think of. I was thinking about trying align or something else prophylacticly. I tried taking pepcid every morning and it seemed to work a little, but not really. These pains seem to be getting worse. Its supposed to get easier, but I'm just at my one year and i have pains every day after eating almost anythingView Thread
Every morning, every single morning, I get diarrhea. It doesn't matter what I eat or even if I ate yet. I tried not eating late at night, not eating dairy in the morning, I tried waiting an hour after I wake up to eat.
I don't understand it. At first I thought it was because I had gastric bypass two years ago. But that doesnt make sense because I can eat the same foods at different parts of the day and Im fine.
Lately its been lasting for hours! It happens about 4 times a morning, even at work. It used to only be once.
