What's this squeezing feeling?

6 posts in this topic

3 days post op and I am having a squeezing feeling come and go in the middle of my chest under the breastbone.  Is this gas or what ?

When does it occur? When drinking or eating? When lying down. Any time? You're still very swollen, so things may feel very different/new when you eat or drink for sure.

To me, that was my "full" feeling.  I felt chest pain.  That gets better though.  Just take your time drinking (if this is happening when you are drinking).

@Gretta @TammyP this happens anytime.  Like this morning when I woke up, I had not gotten out of bed yet and it did it. Thought maybe gas but I don't know

You're so early out, I'm thinking swelling. It could be acid reflux. Try to sleep sitting up as much as possible.

I find trapped air will give me that squeezing feeling. Hopefully it will dissipate quickly for you.
