That is a ton of sugar! I’d avoid it.. good chance it would cause dumping.

Yipes. Try to stick to 10g of carbs or less for anything - drinks included!

Well Mousecat, I know I tease you sometimes about your " where do it go ?" bowels. but it's in love cause I am still fighting the wars too.
Yesterday I suddenly realized nothing was happening #2wise. Felt like I had a tennis ball stuck, went and strained and strained, finally a ping pong-ball. Well Wel I I says to me, it's MoM time, uncle Miralax might have kept things soft behind but like Mick Jagger, " I can't get no satisfaction", the amount I took usually puts me into Don't Trust A Fart- hood, drank down extra liquids, NADA! There she sat, no Fleet Enema on the premises, so this morning I put my little non-latex gloves on, upplied some Vaseline and the tennis ball finally popped free and. behind it, sift and squishy once I released the plug. So you can't find yours, mine 💖me So Much it doesn't want to leave. I have a surgeon appointment tomorrow, didn't want to go to Columbus with a Heavy Tushie💩so let's hope I AM ALL BETTER!

I don’t think the vomiting is a good thing. Call your doctor or nurse contact. My dietician told me to drink this smooth tea at night. I bought it. Disgusting but if you like tea it’s good.

After surgery I didn’t have a bowel movement for eight days. I was passing gas. I went and bought some glycerin suppositories and used one of those and it resolved the problem. Since then I go every other day. I think it’s different for everyone but after being on a liquid diet pre-surgery and after I think it’s reasonable to not go.

Anyone have very dark “sticky” poops? I believe it’s because of the Iron pills I’m taking. Does it go away? Should I cut down on the iron supplements? Constantly feel constipated, I have a couple of squirts a day. Thanks for any words of wisdom!

Yes I also take Miralax twice a day, or I am supposed to. A couple times I only did one and I started getting the #2 roadblocks once again. And you know. what that can be!

Okay guys - update on this. lol. I am still unable to go to the bathroom. I take Colace 3 times a day. I was also taking Miralax but since the addition of it also didn't help and just upset my stomach the doctor said to just stop. The ONLY THING that makes me go is senna tea. If I don't drink my tea, I will not go... for weeks. Almost 3 weeks is my record, and then when I went it was a small amount. Yes, I've tried suppositories to no effect.

When I drink the senna, I get explosive, pure liquid poos. It happens about 3 times and then I'm back to not going. The doctor said to go ahead and drink the tea every 3 days, but it is really difficult to manage at work, as you can imagine. Sometimes it just... comes out. So I do it once a week when I know I can manage the bathroom trips and accidents if there is one. I'm trying to figure out a way to have it twice a week. I was told never to take Fiber because I had a hernia and the bulking effect can cause an obstruction where the new stitching is.

I am really scared this is my new normal. Am I overreacting? Be honest. lol. I eat all foods now... salads, meats, some fruit..... it's not all purees and dairy anymore, lol. Still no improvement. The nurse said it *should* improve at 6 months post-op. I am 3 months. So maybe I AM overreacting. But it's disturbing to be reliant on this tea, and the effects of the tea itself. And also that even though I eat nothing happens. I DO NOT have gas or cramping or any sensation of constipation ever.

Ammmggg the senna tea didn't work! I have really bad cramps, though. Halp! I am on Day 13 with only 1 micropoop. This won't stop happening! Taking Colace and Miralax, and have had the senna tea twice in 5 days.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
