Hello .... 6/29/20 RNY here.... any recommendations for blockage, not pooping... how to eliminate ???

I had my surgery on 6/29 too. I didn't poop for a week after, partly due to the fact there is very little Fiber in liquids and partly due to the anesthesia that slows everything down. Now I take a psyllium capsule in the morning, make sure I drink at least 2 liters of Fluid a day, and I added a probiotic and active culture yogurt to my diet. Some people use Colace or Miralax. If you are truly blocked that's a surgical emergency and you'll have severe pain, vomiting, cramping, and swelling in your abdomen.
