While traveling in Europe for a month, I ate foods very different from my norm. Only 5 months post-op, my diet has been pretty simple and bland. For the last week of my trip I had daily diarrhea.

I’ve been home 24 hours - have been drinking only warm chamomile tea. Still have diarrhea.

Any suggestions to get back on track?

Are you sure you haven’t picked up a bug, it might be an idea to go and see your Dr and get checked

Were you eating eggs in Europe? I noticed in some countries they are shelved instead of refrigerated so i avoided them completely so soon after my surgery. If you weren't used to farm fresh this could be an issue.

Also as @elcee mentioned it could just be a bug. Totally touch base with your Primary/Surgeon for a diagnosis & treatment.

It's true, even in Europe you could have picked up a bug or something, so that might be it. Have you taken Immodium? If it persists, see your doctor.

@greentealael I didn’t eat any from the grocery stores that are pre-made on the shelves. I did eat some in a restaurant.

Thanks for the input. Today has been a bit better at home only drinking tea. I plan to go to the doctor tomorrow!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
