I had surgery November 29, 2018. I have questions to see if some of the things I'm going through is normal. My stomach sounds like a toliet flushing and then I have to go to the restroom. A lot of it is not by choice. I'm leaking poop and don't when know it till I've went to the bathroom or I feel wet. Also I have diarrhea constantly. Is this normal and I can't sleep.

Yeah, pretty norms for this early out. Sorry you're having probs. I would use pads or panty liners for a while. You might also switch up your Protein. The gurgles get better. The other stuff is just part of figuring out your new tum and it healing. And oh...NEVER. EVER. EVER. Never trust a fart!

Your back pain is likely caused from the surgery. If it's right at your sternum where your esophagus and tum meet, then it's likely surgical pain. You get rid of that by taking liquid tylenol per the package instructions. If it's so bad, then I added in Tramadol with the liquid tylenol and it got rid of it very quickly. The pain radiates from deep in your chest straight through to your back.

Yup, seems pretty normal. On my 3rd day after surgery I had apparently pooed the bed just a tiny bit. Which I didn't notice at all. So I went to sit in my recliner. You know, just to spread the poo. It wasn't until my first big fart that morning that I realized a 2nd Water balloon had just exploded out of me. Super pleasant. I had a leaky bum for about a week. Don't worry, if you're like me you will soon have some stellar constipation and then it should stabilize after a couple weeks.

Long story short, it will get better, and it will get better quickly. Although, I'd listen to Fluffy and avoid the juice for a while.

Dayum. I was the opposite. About 3 weeks out I realized a poo wasn't always a poo. After much intervention I delivered Rosemary's Baby in solid poo-form (complete with arms, legs, and devils horns). :(

Thank you. So what do I do with this day if I don't juice for the last day

I'd just drink tons of Water, decaf warm tea, decaf warm coffee, SF Jello, SF popsicles, broth, Protein water and be done with the day!

But I'm just some shmoe on the internet and am not a doc!!!! That's just what I personally did for my clear liquid days. My doc would not let me have juice in any form.

Sorry, that's a question better answered by minds more knowledgeable than my own.

I did have surgery and I'm doing great. I had to spend a lot of money trying to find what works for me and I have. I purchased from Walmart in vanilla and chocolate see the picture below. I also purchased Peanut Butter powder and I add it to my shake everyday and I have a Reese's cup shake every morning. No gas, No Gas, No gas definitely a blessing. Them I play with regular food but I love the can of chicken. I miss Unjury Protein Powder unflavored in the chicken. I use one cracker a slice of presliced cheese chedder and pile the chicken on.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
