Lol we all love it when it happens. When the pressure in the abdomen is released, it is like opening the pearly gates.

I've heard that pooping is difficult after surgery, can anyone tell me why?? I haven't gotten my surgery date but am always doing all the research I can "the pooping" topic tends to come up a lot but all I read is that is painful and very difficult why is that? :huh:

You almost get emotional and teary eyed when it happens. You feel like giving an acceptance speech!

I had my sleeve surgery on 2/6 and haven’t been able to poop yet. I did finally start farting today and even that was incredible! I swear I heard the Hallelujah chorus!

If you're on the two week pre-op liquid diet of Protein Shakes, that's a lot of Protein and zero Fiber. My advice is to buy both Miralax and suppositories pre-op. Mix miralax in Day 2 post-op and I needed to use a suppository on day 3 or 4. Since then I've been really regular (TMI) but yes every visit to the toilet is a gift.
