Personal question, but about how long after your sleeve did it take for you to do a “Number 2”? 😬

4 days for me, but I was also full of Miralax and stool softener. Wasn't fun, but stay on the softener and miralax for a while to keep it going.

10 days after surgery and it wasn’t much. My surgery was 12/10/18. The first two months post op sleeve it was a struggle and I would go about every 4 days and now it is about every two days. I noticed once I was able to increase my liquids and activity things improved. I still have a strong restriction and can only eat about 3-4 Oz at a meal and I am never hungry. Starting weight 310+ (wouldn’t weigh myself) day of surgery 288 and I am down 139 lbs since surgery with only 3-5 more pounds to go.

I think everyone is different but for me i was able to go (TMI but it was like water) wishing 4days out of the hospital. And real solid #2 once I was advanced to soft/solids stage 3 but just this weekend I suffered from constipation to where I cried (yup it was that bad).

Today marks exactly 4 weeks Post Op :)

day after surgery but it was very, very loose. Now since then, I struggle with constipation all the time and still, almost 7 months out, still take two stool softeners a day and digestive enzymes at night. I have cut out laxatives, i was taking them about once a week in the beginning and your body can get used to them and come to expect them. Hot coffee seems to help me too.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
