    Does this mean a lack of something? I had my sleeve 8 days ago and am eating yoghurt, broth, thin soups, having as much water as I can.

    It’s really painful.

    Is it painful and is the area red? I don’t want to alarm you but I know that cramping calves and if it is red and painful could be an indicator of a blood clot. Especially concerning since your only a few days out from surgery, maybe worth ringing your GP x

    Best to get it checked out @Georgie80 !

    It might be something simple but you need that confirming xx

    Exactly what @Laaux and @Mazza said! I had a DVT after having my twins and initially thought it was just a pulled muscle. It very well may be, or you're lacking something, but best to get it checked and be safe rather than sorry.

    I had this about 5-7 weeks post op it’s lack of sodium in diet. When you start on food it will get better. I could not walk up the stairs it was not nice!
