Yep. No movement here since Thursday (date of surgery). I'm pretty sure it's normal though

I've had nooo bowel moments. I was sleeved the 26th. I'm starting to get worried. I have been super bloated and have some gas that just doesn't want to come out!!

Mine are just dirty liquid for lack of better wording :) but i really have to concentrate and push to have anything come out.

Have you tried prune juice or anything to get things going?

Mine are the same. Liquid mostly, and until yesterday, frequent. Also, decent amounts of gas.

No bm's here. Lots of gas but even that i have trouble passing. It just rumble around, tries to sneak out, then... drumroll please....back up the intestine it goes! Disappointing. Well I had an uterine ablation in June which was nowhere near as invasive and had no bm for 5 days after. And I was EATING. Im not to worried this early out but Im going to call my surgeon tomorrow just to check. Tomorrow will be 5 days post op.

I'm not going to lie I was close. With Easter dinner it was one of the hardest things to deal with. BUT I conquered, removed myself from the situation and had some Water and some ice pops!!! THANK GOD FOR ICE POPS!!!!! I feel right now we really don't have any room for error and we have to be as strong as can be in the beginning!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
