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.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        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)
