I'm no help but this post makes me feel better. I'm in the same exact boat. My right side hurts so bad through to my back. I think the gas is out but I haven't pooped since before surgery. I'm swollen and grumpy lol.

I’m with y’all, but mine is my left side. I was also worried about not pooing, but now I’ve gone three times. I’m starting to worry a little.

I pooped Day 5 after surgery. I walked every day to get rid of gas and pain. I mostly walked around my yard for 10 minutes every hour. I'm on Day 9 and I'm almost starting to feel normal again. It gets better:)

I used MOM in the early days for constipation.

I had the sleeve 5 days ago. Was so constipated and belly hurting. Had an icepack on all day. I wish the surgeon would have told me to take the Miralax before i called today. The nurse said the constipation is usually from pain meds and once they are out of your system and eating food it is better. I would definately try some if you didnt already. I am not really hungry. Constantly sipping on Protein Shakes or clear Protein, gatorade, broth. Caffeine free tea, or Jello and sf popsicles. I also froze some protein shakes in little containers to make it easier to get down. Seems to help.

Alright the pain in my tummy is getting real and I'm pretty sure it's just constipation. I'm coming up on a week of no

How much MOM do I take?? We have smaller tummies so do I take less than the 30mL

you can start there and if it doesn't work take a full dose. You will feel much better for sure. Good luck

I took a laxative before surgery to ensure everything was cleaned out. I finally pooped 8 days post OP and it was after 2 days of taking MOM plus 2 dulcolax, but now I poop daily. Nurse Practitioner said it was probably due to me starting Vitamins too soon. Hope this helps! You're certainly NOT alone!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
