What is the most powerful, gut-exploding laxative I can buy OTC?



Recommended Posts

The most powerful butt-explosive laxative on earth would be...drumroll please...

sugar free Gummy Bears. I don't think they would be WLS surgeon approved. :D

Here's a review from an Amazon customer (oh and they're only available in 5lb bags... :o )

Good times. :D

I wish there was a good OTC option! I had to resort to mag citrate twice after surgery, but it’s fizzy so you have to let it go flat...and it’s super nasty!!
Now I take Linzess daily, plus a stool softener three times a day and drink smooth move tea every night, and I still only go about every 2 weeks. It’s awful!!

Seems like when I was a small Frustr8 croton oil and castor oill were mentioned. Am I wrong?

I drink 16 oz of Water with 1 tablespoon of Metamucil every night and every morning I have a regular visit to the toilet after going 3 weeks with almost nothing. The first time I did I lost 3 pounds I was so excited!

They had me drink 2 bottles of magnesium citrate the day before surgery. That stuff kept working for days.

2 bottles. Impressive! :D Colon Blow 2000. :) But I swear, they wouldn't let me do a bowel prep before surgery. The bastages...I had concretions. CONCRETIONS. It was like giving birth to Rosemary's baby! With TEETH! LOL. It was truly gruesome.

So I would have much rather dealt with the mag citrate before hand. Did you have any issues with constipation afterward?

It wasn’t fun. That lasted for a few days after surgery. No issues since then. Things aren’t “normal” but they are moving. I think all the Water and walking is what is keeping me from getting constipated.

anybody remember castor oil? Dumb doctor wanted me to drink Orange juice and castor oil to put myself into labor. Remember telling someone I think I'm greasing the Wrong Hole here! FYI , 50 years ago and Baby ##1 still didn't come for 3 days and she never has showed up on time for anything else. That was RD short for Rotten DAUGHTER, and I have a story about her 365 days a year, always one if those in every family, I gave birth to MINE.😞👸😏

Y’all... the struggle is real. Almost 4 months post op and I pray to have the runs nearly every day. I take colase every morning... and drink smooth move tea at night... and then drink milk of magnesia if things getting really out of hand.

This morning I was so out of sorts that I got nauseas and vomited while clearing the pipes. My failure to produce is really starting to get worry me and I need to find some routine to keep me regular. 😩😩

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
