Constipation



Recommended Posts

I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery on Nov. 14, 2017, I’ve had good success at weight loss so far, the biggest issue I have is severe contraption.

Before surgery I had a regular bowel movement every day but now it may be once every 5 to 7 days and very hard and painful. I’ve been drinking 48 to 64 oz’s of Water daily, using MiraLAX and stool softeners every day. It’s now been 9 days, I NEED HELP!!!!

I'm a year out of surgery and had the same problem at first. Here's a solution around 7 pm take a Dulcolax tablet then at bedtime take a peri-colace. In the morning you should have soft stools and feel much better. In time this all passed for me. No pun intended.

I am only 21 days pre op but on day 3 I experienced constipation. I had never ever felt this in my life and I dont want ever feel it again. You know what helped me is a shake I found in a gastric sleeve cook book. Thank God the shake has half a small apple, half pear, five spinach leaves, a slice of avocado, a cup of unsweetened almond milk, 1/3 orange juice. Blend and enjoy it's actually delicious and really helped me.

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
