I don't mean to scare you - but a lot of us (at least VSGers and RNYers) deal with chronic constipation - so even though that first one post-surgery is a doozy, it's likely not to be the last! Miralax may become your best bud (or stool softeners - or magnesium tablets - or whatever works for you...)

either one work. Some people have a preference one way or the other. I take a capful of Miralax every morning - it usually does the trick.

I’ve just resigned to the fact that I’m only going once every three or four days. It’s killed my quiet reading time.

It does get a little better when you can start to eat some real food again. Those first couple months are the plain ass devil. I prayed a few times to just let me die, and came out of the bathroom looking like I ran a marathon.

I also recommend looking into abdominal massage, hot tea and a heating pad on poop days!!!

Happy pooping

I need to get into a routine and take some stool softeners or something. I can't deal with that very often. Happy Pooping! :)

I know this is the Guy's Room...but watch your Iron intake too...mine was off the charts (I was taking 45mg per day) and it is very constipating.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
