Touchy subject.... stinky poo and gas :(



Recommended Posts

Something my surgeon or any of the docs NEVER warned me to expect was terrible smelling gas and poo :( It is really really bad. I am wondering if I am the only one, or if anyone has noticed this after the surgery. I am 5 months out and noticed this on day 2 :( I need to know if anyone here has had this problem and if you were able to STOP the stink. I am not really eating gas inducing foods. I just get gas bad sometimes. I will say that I don't get constipated, just the opposite. I usually go first thing in the morning no problem (except the stink).

I am not a potty mouth, just need help!

I don't but the only thing I can think of is to start Probiotics. You can take a pill like Culturelle or start eating Activia yogurt everyday and see if that helps.

Gastric Bypass Surgery actually bypasses part of your intestines, shortening the digestion process. The resulting stool and gas is more stinky due to more undigested material which “ferments”. I keep Poo-pouri in my purse for outings/travel and have orange oil spray in all my restrooms at home!

If I isn't Paying Rent, kick it Out! Of course right in the middle of Mass is not a Good Thing, but better to let it loose that STRAIN than to Hold it back and bear the PAIN.

Just excuse yourself to the restroom, why smell up everyone's day?

Try chewable digestive enzymes and Probiotics. I also think harder to digest foods and food sensitivities trigger it worse.

Manners aren't what they used to be. My mom would always make us excuse ourselves to the bathroom.

I might as well just live in the bathroom if that was the case. I'd never be able to sit at my desk and get work done!

Undigested fats cause loose and frequent bowel movements. These are often hard to control. You may have cramping, foul-smelling diarrhea, and lots of gas. Are you eating too much fat?
