Sorry for the TMI.

I am 5 weeks post surgery. No issues getting in Water, Protein or Vitamins. I go to the bathroom once a day.

I'd say at least 4-5x I have noticed blood on my stool. Years ago I had that happen and after colonoscopy they determined internal hemroids, suggested I change my diet. Well as of now I am eating the best I have ever eaten in my life. Should I be concerned? Any similar experiences?

Thanks

It would be you are working to hard to express your bowels.

It could be you developed fishers. Which are small tears in the rectum.

It could be hemroids.

I would call your doctor and have it checked just to make sure that it's nothing serious.

I agree. Having WLS changes everything. We have to be especially attentive to any sort of tummy issues. From where the food enters to where it exits. We are not the "normal" patient. I would call either your surgeon or doctor but whoever you do see make sure they know of your surgery it changes everything. They are likely to be more attentive and less dismissive. Good Luck!!

      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!
