I would be very grateful for anyone's thoughts on what the problem could be, or to hear from anyone else who has a similiar problem.

Every morning, my stomach begings to hurt while I am eating breakfast, and continues to hurt for about an hour afterwards. It happens whatever I eat for breakfast, and whatever time I have it. I have tried different things, from cereal to dry crackers, and tried not drinking tea with it but nothing seems to make a difference.

I had a gastric bypass 2 years ago, I dont know if this is relevant as the stomach pain has only been happenning for the last few months.

Has anyone got any thoughts?

  • I would go to your doctor and explain what happens. It could be related to your gastric bypass, although it seems unusual that it only occurs while eating breakfast. Your doctor might recommend getting a upperendoscopy done to make sure that it is not gastric bypass related. It also could be that you have a build up of acid in your stomach from sleeping during the night. It might be helpful to go on an OTC heartburn medication like Prilosec.

  • Thanks for your reply. I have been meaning to go to my gp but havnt made an appt yet as I hate going! But I will make sure I go soon! It is a bit bizarre that it just happens after breakfast isnt it? I wonder if anyone else has the same problem, and what caused it?
