I am 4 years out and have one rather large Bowel movement per day typically. Usually in the morning but occasionally other time of the day.

Every morning, first thing after I wake up, I have to use the bathroom for a BM. Typically, this is the major one of the day with 2-3 other smaller ones throughout the day. But every once in a while I have a day where that's all my body wants to do and I have 4-5 that day. Those days I'm thinking, "What's going on?" It's nothing to be concerned about, just the body taking care of business.

Just wait. It’s coming. BMs will become larger and have more odor (noxious). If you get constipated try eating a slice of cheesecake, seriously, it works better than medicine for the DS. Also simple carbs, like white sugar, will cause excess gas and possibly tummy discomfort.

This is the life! 👍

Pretty much the case the first year, then things change but never back to what things were pre-op. Those days are gone forever.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
