Okay RYN Family,

I am 3 months post op! Started my regular diet Wednesday and even before, I have been pooping everytime you turn around! I drink and wait 10minutes before eating and after I eat I wait 30 min. It still seems as if I am drinking, eating and pooping. My butt is having a romance with the toilet paper and I am hating it! One day I wiped so much my butt split! I know TMI! I hope this will resolve soon! I went shopping today, I hate eaten my Breakfast did not have anything to drink a matter of fact was afraid to drink 30 min after the fact but my stomach rumbled and made obnoxious soundds I was so embarassed! I went and got me some Gas X to take right then and there! On the way home, I didn't know if I ws going to make it or not! (I made it barely) I remember my dietician saying, "Do not trust passing gas, and some people wear adult diapers!" I refuse to do that but not to prideful to wear a pad. Any suggestions or encouragement of this to shall pass! Thank s everyone!

sometimes too many carbs or else sugar alcohols will do that to (some) people (sugar alcohols are artificial sweeteners that end in -itol. Like sorbitol or xylitol)

Get a bidet attachment for your toilet. I literally don't know how people or I lived without one. Best thing for your tush ever.

So sorry you're going through that, but I totally feel your pain! My particular surgery causes excess... ehm #2 issues and it's not fun. At all. I'll be minding my own business and then suddenly it's like: "RRUUUUNN!" or you have an accident. And I learned that anything with sucralose or sugar alcohols upset my stomach. Stevia is the only way to go for sweetners for me.

I hope you can figure out what's causing your issue. I'd suggest maybe monitoring what you're eating and trying to pinpoint it. Hopefully that'll put an end to it.

Tomorrow is 5 weeks post op for me for revision from mgb to rny. The first 2 weeks I was constipated, the next 2 weeks I had severe diarrhea and then BAM constipated for the last week! I have no idea what's going on and how it can go from one extreme to the next in a matter of one day.

My nutritionist advised no drinking 30 minutes prior and 60 minutes after meals. Increase your non-drinking time and see if that helps. Also try to get some Fiber into your diet. I do 3 teaspoons of Benefiber daily to try and stay regular.

Thank you and yes, I think I have figured it out I take 1 equal in my coffee with FF unsweetened Creamer in my coffee and as Batwoman stated it has that sugar alcohol in it so I will start using rhe fairlife I guess as a creamer and try Stevia for a sweetner! Thanks so much!

Exactly, haven't had to much of the constipation happenin, but prior to surgery I took Linzess for IBSC irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, have not had to take my linzess since the surgery! Hoping things get better with you soon!

I got one when I had an abdominalplasty 5 years ago when wasn't going to be able to turn and wipe myself. And though I appreciate my husband and know that he would be willing to take care of me in any way, I wanted to maintain some dignity. So I looked into this, and we put the attachments on our toilet and it's been a complete lifesaver and a game changer. We use less toilet paper, I am cleaner. I feel fresher no matter what. And what I had surgery and I couldn't turn, all I needed help with was patting dry.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

      1. Bastian

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
