Diarrhea on liquid diet 7 days post op



Recommended Posts

Is it normal to have diarrhea during this liquid phase post op? I’ve had it for about 3 days now, all day long everyday. Just wondering if it’s normal because I’m not eating anything, just liquids. One Protein Shake a day.

I would call you doctor! Nothing I have seen here before, but all of us are different. You body is healing and the Protein Shakes may not be setting well

I had surgery 10 years ago...so things and Protein Drinks may have changed. I could not tolerate the Protein drinks. I get so ill from anything with any kind of sugar substitute. I sill have to read labels like crazy because flavored yogurts, and any "diet" sweets will make me very very sick. Read labels and see what is in there and try different protein drinks.

yes - some people have an intolerance to sugar substitute - and some become lactose intolerant (at least temporarily - but sometimes permanently) after WLS. So one of those could be the culprit, too - but I'd see what your surgeon has to say. I personally never had diarrhea (always the opposite), but we're all different...

I had it every day like you while I was on the liquid phase. As soon as I started the soft foods (14 days out after surgery) it went away just as fast as it came. Hang in there!! It goes away!

I heard it's normal. I can't compare my own experience because I STILL have issues, but that's due in part to my specific surgery. I did notice I had issues with sucralose though and try to either limit my intake or cut it out altogether because it causes massive stomach issues.

      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!!!

      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...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
