It took me a few days before my bowels did anything and even then it was only liquid for the first like 2 weeks.lol.

4 days for me until I could not cope with it anymore and placed an enema.

I like having bowel movements 2-3 a day so it was strange for me. I didn't enjoy the feeling of not beeing empty. Plus the stool played peekaboo but didn't come out.

I think it was 5 or 6 days before I had a BM after surgery.

You're passing gas, so that tells me that your innards are working. Maybe they just don't have much to pass? If you did a pre-op liquid diet and are then on liquids post-op, there's a high probability that there isn't much to pass. Unless you're uncomfortable, then I'd say there's nothing to sweat about.

I'm 5 days post-op and no BMs. My Dr had me do milk of magnesia day before surgery, and having been on liquids since most likely the bowels are still on E. I agree with S@ss... As long as you don't have discomfort don't stress it. Eventually s*** will happen.

Took me a week, and then went out and bought a bottle of Miralax. Well, the threat of miralax might have been enough, because later that day the train came through....now it's only every three days, where before it was a daily train. I think if nothings going in, nothings coming out...

Ducolax, in the little pill form, helped me.

I just had revision to bypass. I was taking dulcolax, Miralax, mom, Smooth Move tea. Was constipated for 5 days until dr office told me to try an enema and magnesium citrate. I was told that if I had not gone by the evening of the fifth night I needed to go to er. You do not want to deal with obstruction or compaction. Nothing to take lightly.

I'm 8wks out from RNY and I'm still taking Colace twice daily and mixing Mirlax in my shakes. If you haven't taken anything then you should start. For me this is a constant issue, hopefully you will start going on your own.

Vertical sleeve. Gas one day after surgery, and BM two days after surgery; had one or two every day since. I was not on a pre-op liquid diet (was able to eat up to 8 hours before arrival to hospital).

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Has anyone had a gastric sleeve revision?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
