I rarely use the bathroom anymore?

I've looked for it at Walmart with no luck. Anywhere else it's sold?

I am wondering the same thing. I am 10 days post op and feel like I am not going at all. Still on mostly Clear liquids so I guess that is probably most of it but still seems weird. Great ideas on this site!

How much caffeine are you getting? That's not a good idea when you've got dehydrated poo clogging you up. Of course, I quit caffeine altogether and I have bad days, so it's no guarantee of success.

Hmm other causes? Too much Calcium in your diet?

Medications for depression or blood pressure?

Dehydrated (I think you eliminated that - pardon the pun)

Exercise helps too. Bounce on the treadmill for an hour a day and it might loosen things up for ya.

My nut said caffeine was ok because I drink almost 100 ounces Water a day on top of couple cups coffee. I do hr and half four to five days a week on the treadmill. I'm really just at a loss. If it's not a fibroid making this so bad, I'm not sure what to do next. I will try Decaf coffee and see but this was here before I added caffeine back, but will try about anything at this point!

You didn't address the question of volume. When I was a coffee drinker I was drinking it nonstop, all day. And are you counting it into your Water total?

I know you said you take Vitamins, but does yours have Iron in them? Iron is notoriously causes constipation. I know I can not take extra iron for this reason, My 6 month blood work was good even without extra supplements.

I'm not sure. Take Celebrate multi so guessing it has some. I've always taken a Vitamin but I'm sure these have way more in them.

Be careful with Smooth Move tea. That stuff can be harsh on a normal stomach... I'd be nervous about using it the sleeve

      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!
