    I have had constipation from the start. Definitely ask your Doctor what he/she would prefer you to take. Mine said to use a stool softener and if I go 2 days without BM to use a mild laxative. If I miss a second day I take the softener and mild laxative. I am one month out and I have about 4 BMs a week. About 2 are... difficult. I was told in time, after I start eating more regular, that may resolve.
    Best of luck.

    Mickeygmg got a reaction from Colorado Cowgirl in Nervous surgery Monday   
    My nerves didn't set off until we were in the car. On our way, I told my husband, "If we hit traffic for any reason, we are going out to a nice Breakfast instead ". It was smooth sailing the whole way. Then in the elevator in the parking garage, the back wall was glass, looking out over a court yard. There was a huge flag flying the said, "Let's get Healthy together." I almost cried. I was searching for a negative sign all morning and the universe threw a positive sign at me.
    Nerve are normal, I'd be more afraid if a person didnt get a little nervous before a surgery.
    Relax, take a deep breath and remind yourself why you are doing this. And. Let's get healthy together. 😊
    The best of luck, and health.

    Mickeygmg got a reaction from Bianca S. in Vitamins!!   
    For immediate post surgery I was told to take the gummies, not the pills. That was for the first month. Be sure to ask you doctor about it. The gummies have a small amount of sugar, have less values and dont offer Iron. I took one and a half dose daily till my bottle was gone, then switched to pills. Which now, at 7 weeks post op, are still a little hard to take.

    I had the gastric sleeve done a month ago. I have been a scale slave. I lost about 10 pounds asap!!! Then over a week of nothing. Then the next week 4 pounds. I am 24 pounds down since the surgery. And it's been the same pattern with every pound. My advice to both of us, follow the instructions, take Vitamins, get required protien, and stay off the scale! 😋

    I am a month out. I have experienced the brain fog a couple times my first week. Are you keeping track of your food and liquid intake?? If so, review it, if not, start. I was low on calories, protien and very low on liquids. Once I made it a point to never go to bed lower than 500 calories, 60 protien or 36 ounces of Water (still not enough water) i have yet to get brain fog again.
    Best of luck.
