I'm 9 weeks out without complications but yesterday and today I can't eat. I doesn't seem to go down. Even yogurt was difficult. I have not had a BM in 6 days and I'm very burpy. Any ideas?

You need more Fiber, try metamucil. Also go back to liquids. They told me that if that happens to ho back to the last thing that you could tolerate.

I went to my pre op today and they said Water, water and more water. Also if you do get backed up to call the surgeon asap to send something otc.

I was having terrible constipation at about nine weeks as well, and I occasionally went 5 or 6 days without a BM. I could still eat, but I found that I had little appetite and couldn't eat as much when I was so backed up. This may be TMI, but I used an enema each time it had been three days or longer, and that always did the trick for me.

Fastest fix but it is disgusting....With such a sensitive stomach/pouch everything can cause gastric upset and cramping...accept Light mineral oil. You do 3 big gulps every hour until you poop mineral oil about 5 hours later. It's like a oil slide for the constipated stool and everything just goes right through without any cramping. I have been doing this for over 35 years I don't send flowers to my friends having surgery I drop off a bottle of mineral oil. Anesthesia,pain management, decreased mobility all cause constipation. But for you add in ABD surgery/ decreased food and Fluid intake / rapid weight loss. Your poor body is still going through a lot. Yes an enema will work but you have 28 feet in intestines with a small alteration, the enema only does the very end you need to get everything moving along the rest of 24 feet. Again wiping after is disgusting because of the oil but every effective.....sorry for the graphics everyone.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
