That's exactly what happened with me, now I'm afraid to try any I pretty much just got most of the gas out. Also, did you have any issue with a BM? 4 days out I haven't gone yet?

At Day 8, I still had not had a BM. So, that night it took chewable Senokot. Had a BM the next morning. Nothing the following morning. Nut a BM this morning. So, hoping my body is getting back on track. When I had my one week post-OP appt with my program, they say no BM for 4-5 days is normative after WLS. But, not 8 days. So, that's why I took Senokot.

Sorry to hear about your complication but I’m glad to know that other than the gas part you are doing well! I’m super nervous about my surgery on the 26th!!

I was super nervous too I almost canceled at the last minute. I have a great support system even though I’m alone my family wanted this for me for so long. Just keep remembering the surgery is easy. It’s probably the safest surgery you’ll ever have.

What does your surgeon say about what you are experiencing? May be helpful to get checked out by your team.

@BRittenhouse I'm sorry your having such a bad time, I don't have 7 children but I do have a lot of animals that can't understand why they can't sit on me and why I can't play much. I had mine on 4/15 and still only on clear Water and stomach feels like severe cramps, I did wake up today and the pain was a lot less, so all I can say is Day by Day, do you have a support system to help? Hang in there, it's got to get better 🙏
