Frothy, yellow diareah.. need some advice



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery 3 years ago come this June. Look and feel great in my size 9/10 jeans and medium tops! However, these past 3 days I have been having severe diareah, frothy and yellow in color. Upper part of my abdomen has been feeling gasy and full. I have been trying to drinking more fluids, and cut out any carbs, eating only Protein and veggies. Taking my Vitamins. No fever or feeling ill, but fear something is wrong.

Has any other veterans had this issue?

This is the sort of thing you should see your doctor about, especially if it has lasted three days. Foamyness is generally caused by excess fat or mucus in your stool, but this may be a symptom of a larger issue. Since you've cut out carbs though it probably means that it's not a gluten sensitivity.

I feel seeing the dr will be best. Thanks for the input.

I’m starting TPN because of diarrhea related issues. It can get out of control fast. I would at least give your dr. a call. I’m 3 yrs post op too. Was loving life. Now I’m bed ridden. If you are concerned it’s not something to let go quietly. You are in control of your health.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
