Recommended Posts

I believe it's been over 3 weeks since I have gone poo. I had my surgery on Dec 19th. Only have gone twice since. I have been drinking Miralax and eating prunes(I know I shouldn't, but I am desperate). I am 40 lbs down and now feel tierd all the time. I drink Water all day long. I eat very little, but make sure I have protien. I just want to go normally! Any suggestions?

This is actually a little dangerous. I think you need to go the ER imidatly. You need to be hospitalized and monitored.

Try Milk of Magnesia and if it doesbt work quickly, call your doctor right away. 3 weeks is too long to not go.

Magnesium Citrate. But this has been way too long for you to go without pooping. Call your doctor.

When I first got mine I was like that probably the first two months. What i saw that helped me a bit was greek yogurt i would add some chia seeds to it. Try that it worked for me. Hopefully it does for you. I still struggle a bit but not as bad I probably go two or three times a week now and im going on 5 months post op

Pls, pls seek help if one goes a long time between poops. It is actually very dangerous. Your colon could rupture and leak into your gut, among other things. Underlying causes can also be an issue and all this needs to be resolved. It's ok to skip a day or three now and then, but weeks and months, that is qute dangerous.

I've only been constipated once, and that was 4 day after surgery. I never felt so full, and bloated. When I finally could get it out, it was like releasing heaven on me. Can't imgaine going weeks on end..I qute like going 2-3 times a day.

hi there!
I got sleeved on Feb 3 and my first bowel movement was today, Feb 8... Other than keeping my Water intake up, I added prune juice and prune baby food. I was desperate since the last time I pooped was right before my surgery.
I’m not a fan of prunes so I had to dilute the juice a little. And I would take just small amounts of the baby food.
hopefully this helps!

I finally went, the prunes worked. I do feel like I am ok other than this issue. If it continues, I will go to the hospital. Thank you for your response!🤗

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
