Feeling Pregnant



Recommended Posts

I feel sooo bloated! Is this gas? I have taken Malox and Gas X and doesn't seem to do much. I have also walked (alot due to shopping), and it only seems to get more intense. I was banded 12/15/05 and have been feeling extremely pregnant (like 12 months) since I have came home on Friday. I am otherwise feeling good. I have lost 13 lbs, and am unable to eat more than 1 to 2 oz. without feeling 15 months pregnant. Also, I have not had a BM since surgery. Not sure if that's normal or not but the nurse didn't seem overly concerned. I am scared to take a laxative because I don't want to start something I cant' stop. Any advise out there? Thanks so much.

I think that the no BM could definately make you feel bloated. Maybe start with colace or some metamucil......you are still just recovering though. I think that if you don't eat much, you can't go much but if it goes over a week I think you should call the Dr back. Welcome to band land!

Thank you all for your replies. I did call the nurse and she said I could take pretty much any kind of stool softner or laxative. So, of couse I got what was on sale, the Maximum Streanth Ex lax. I took it last night around 5:30 and now its 6:30 am the next day and still.... no go! The MOM sounds like a good idea, maybe I will give that a try. Also, I had luck creating my ticker, but not sure how to change it to refect weight loss. Im an IT Idiot! Anyway, ya'll are the best. Special thanks to Delarla, who no matter what she says, always seems to make me LOL! You always seem to make my day and you don't even know it. Pretty cool huh!
