Post op poop! Please share your poopie stories



Recommended Posts

Hello! I am 6 days post gastric bypass surgery. Before surgery I was required to drink lots of milk of magnesia while on a 2 day clear liquid diet. I pooped and pooped like crazy. Now I'm post op, drinking Clear Liquids only and 1 clear protien a day. But I haven't pooped, I feel like going sometimes and have gas but no poop.......Id love to hear what everyone else is experiencing so I can compare!!

Once you start having full liquids you should start having bowel movements. There's just not likely much of anything to come out.

I haven't gone through this yet, but I imagine it's just because you are clear.

Like the poster above me said, you're likely not going to have any bowel movements for some time. You're not taking much of anything in that can be formed into a solid mass. I think it was about 2 weeks after surgery when I had my first movement....and it wasn't much.

Tip: don't strain and try to force something to come out. This can cause some issues "down there!"

I went 12 days after surgery, I tried almost everything,but I may have had a tiny blockage, I became nauseous at the same time, first day normal 2nd day not so normal more liquid than solid , but that may have been from the stool softener and whatever else I took to help me go, my nurse said as long as I wasn't in pain that it will happen and I'll be ok
