    May 2022 surgery?

    Milk of magnesia works well for me when I get constipated. I recommend the cherry flavor. I hear the original does NOT taste good.
  2. Hi all. My surgery was on May 16th, the 1st week was going okay, no vomiting no pain, just a lot of gas that would only come out as a belch. I was having bowel movements so the Dr said to give it more time. By Monday May 30 I was back in the hospital. I was vomiting, couldn't keep anything other than liquids down. Turns out part of my intestines was pinched shut. A full week here in the hospital, but finally feeling better after a second surgery to correct the blockage. All the posts I see people are doing great after surgery with no problems. Anyone else here have any complications?

    May Surgery Buddies

    May 16th surgery. Sadly things have not been going smoothly. Been back in the hospital since Monday May 30th. There is a blockage where my small intestines were reconnected to each other. They cant tell me how the blockage occured. Might be scar tissue or something else. Currently sitting in my hospital room with a tube down my nose to drain the stomach to prep for surgery #2. Anyone else been going through something similar?
  4. Hi everyone! I am currently 10 days post op and am having a lot of issues with burping... ALL DAY LONG. And the burps smell. I am back at work and it is very embarrassing. Any one else have this problem? I am drinking small sips, eating slow, but even when I am not eating or drinking I am belching.

    May 2022 surgery?

    I just had my 1st post op appointment 5/24/22 and the nurse told me to try and avoid the scale at all costs. She said that my metabolism will be doing all kinds of crazy things to adjust after the surgery. She promised to just follow the dieticians plan and get in some walking and weight will continue to fall off.
