To be completely honest, I had diarrhea but my surgeon told me that it was probably some left over junky stuff from the intestinal lining. Its completely normal for you to not have a BM for several days or even a couple weeks. I've had surgery a lot and with the sleeve, it's a major surgery, plus the pre-op diet, as well as the anesthesia. It takes a year for the body to completely rid itself of the anesthesia. We lose it through our hair folicles and pours. I am only 3 weeks our from surgery and I have only had 1 or 2 "regular" bm's. I still have diarrhea well, more loose stools than regular bm's. It takes awhile for the body to readjust! Best of luck to you!!!

Yeah it's weird, my day 1 in hospital I was given to have - ice cream, custard, jelly, chicken creamy Soup, apple purée and orange juice. I think I dipped my finger in the Soup but couldnt down anything. I also have a cappacino which i only had about 5 sips and wasn't sure how my stomach was going to react with it.

I'm from Australia, and I know a lot of doctors only allow liquids for the first week or two. My dr said I was good to go the next day.and got discharge from hospital 24hrs after surgery.

I'm day 5 today am on purées for 4 weeks and then can start my soft diet.

You poor things. I feel lucky now!

You guys are so lucky getting purees so soon. I have full liquids till the 31st. That's when I meet with the NUT to get the ok to move on.

So bizarre discussing BMs with a group of strangers - yay Internet!

I had diarrhea at the hospital and for the first couple of days home. Today (6 days post surgery) I had my first almost kinda sorta normal BM. I mean, I'm on liquids - I wouldn't expect it to be normal.

To the person who got ice cream at the hospital: I kind of hate you. :)

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
