9 months post-op... poop question (sorry)



Recommended Posts

So I am down nearly 100 lbs. now, but I am suddenly experience severe cramping and then the explosive need to poop. It starts normally and slowly over like 1-4 hours gets worse and more frequent with more poop than I thought my body could hold! I don't do sugar, and have mostly cut out all carbs that are not from veggies. It definitely seems worse on days the I work out a bit more intensely (running instead of walking, etc.) Has anyone else had this problem? Like I literally just spend an hour at Starbucks afraid to get back on the road. After 3 trips to the bathroom, afraid people were wondering WTH I was kept doing in there, I finally l left. But really?? This sucks.

IBS? I have that and that's about what it sounds like. If you don't take a good probiotic, I recommend them.

put in a call to your doctor and or surgeon and see about a blood work up.

a fecal sample my solve the issue if it turns out you picked up a bug. dont assume this can only be from WLS.

and never fear the poop questions here. this is one group that has walked that walk and can talk the talk.
