Not to be too forward, but what have your bathroom habits been lately?

Constipation is a common side effect of WLS.

Still have a constipation problem after so many months!! I need to go back to my nutritionist because I still don't think I eat enough or eat enough of the 'right' things.

I have had that problem for ages...before and after my sleeve. I take Colase every day and every 2-3 weeks have to resort to a Dulcolax. I don't think any amount of "the right things" will help me. I just have a sluggish bowel that matched my sluggish metabolism. Thank God for this surgery. I will put up with an occasional pharmaceutical intervention to look and feel this way. 60 lbs. down, 30 to go. Hallelujah!!!!

But saying that (about constipation) I have found that if I have ice cream I have to be VERY close to the toilet!! Needless to say I have stayed away from ice cream!!

My date is 10/5. About how many calories do you all costume daily, and Protein?

I have PCOS hormones are crazy lately but I'm between 800- lately 1100 kcal daily. Protein ranges from 48-90. And I swear fat has left me in all places but my gut! I'm in a 12 pant. And L men's T, yes I've stole all hubbies T shirts!

Hi. Sleeved on 10/28. Down 60 lbs as of today. My stomach can tolerate everything. Nothing really bothers it and some days can eat quite a bit. Which makes me nervous for the future. I am just trying hard lately to be more focused on what I am eating and stick with Protein as much as possible.


My ht/wt are the same...stats are to except I've lost 53#. Do you have PCOS by chance, you mentioned hormones.

This week has been a struggle. The last two days I have gained 2.5 lbs and I don't know why. I have kept my calories below 1,000 and have been getting my Protein in etc etc. has this happened to anyone? I mean my weight sometimes fluctuates a pound here and there but never consistently going up. Hopefully this is just temporary. I decided I am going to go Protein  shakes only today and tomorrow to see if that will help push my body into the right direction. Just frustrated.

I fluctuate between 3-4lbs for a month at a time and then suddenly when I'm not looking at the scale it's gone, plus a pound! Then the same vicious cycle begins!

I do have PCOS. The hormone doctor that I have been working with has helped make a lot of difference in my energy levels. I have recently been at a stall but hopefully it will break soon.

Some days I can get up to 1200 calories but most days I am at 800-1000 same as you and about the same Protein in take.

I really need to focus on Water consumption and my exercise consistency. I work many many many hours and barely have time for anything else but I might try some at home workouts just to get a routine started. Something is better than nothing right?

Are you noticing loose skin since your weight loss?

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
