TMI... loose stool



Recommended Posts

Hi, I just had my conversion to bypass from sleeve two days ago and today I had my first vowel movement. Great I thought! Now, rather than passing gas I run to the bathroom just in case it’s not. I’ve had about 3-4 small bouts of loose stools today. Is this normal at all?

I called them vowel movements until I was about 12. Took me back.

I find a couple turns on the legs tighten those stools right up. ;)

Early post-op it's difficult to predict much with any accuracy. Things will settle eventually.

Good luck,

Tek

19 months out and I sill have loose stools, 5-8 per day. Sill a lot of gas, too. They are getting darker in color but still float, so I know fat malabsorption is still an issue.
