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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
