Okay...so I have surgery in the morning. Been on totally clear for 2 days, and, um, it comes right back out the other end liquid...every time I drink or even have a popsicle! Is this normal??

Yes, it's normal :) If liquid is the only thing you're consuming, it's the only thing that'll come out of you.

If you're flavoring your drinks with sugar free flavors, keep an eye on that too. They can have a laxative effect.

Does anyone else have to do a bowel cleanse?? I have to do liquids for 2 days then my doc wants me to drink that terrible stuff out of a jug which REALLY cleans you out. I just had to do it for colonoscopy so Im not thrilled at having to do it again!

It seems that this is not the usual course of pre op prep?

Not too many require it, but some do. Well you won't have to worry about doing #2 right after surgery cause you will be shiny clean inside. Yeah it isn't all giggles and laughs, last doctor who ordered it for me, by the time I got through I wanted him drawn, quartered and then castrated . He should call himself blessed he was 50 miles away from my wrath! Now Tomkitten when he went through "the purge" in his pictures you can see lime Jello remnants still hanging on the colon wall in a few places, and I know he had expelled all he could. I am not due for another colonoscopy until 2022 unless Drs Needleman and Noria are feeling froggy🐸 and since they have been visiting the upper half of my digestive system, they have curiosity to view the lower half too. If they do, me and the Christmas Goose will have something in common, somebody. wrung our necks to keep us from quacking and squaking too much.🐦

Happens to me postop if I drink with zero food in my tummy or digestive tract. Just comes right out without warning. Fortunately has only happened at home!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
