Howdy friends

I’m 11 days out of sleeve surgery and ever since I left the hospital I have diarrhea, sorry TMI but need help. My doctor said it’s normal but I got like 3-4 times a day and never solid. Has this happened to anyone and please tell me it gets better.

Thanks
Mark

I had this on the liquid phase as well but not three times a day. You may want to talk to your team so you don’t get dehydrated during a time when it’s so hard to get in fluids.

Odd things like this are not uncommon for a while - it can be diarrhea or constipation, or some of both like I had (once it got past the blockage, it was runny...) liquid in - liquid out is a common cause for diarrhea, which resolves as the diet gets more solid; constipation can be holdover from narcotic pain relievers, and later on from being on a low carb, low Fiber diet.

Add into this the simple dietary changes that you are going through, which is often incompatible with your gut flora - all those nice bacteria in your gut that helps digest your food, may now be the wrong ones for your new diet and need to adapt - Probiotics can help with that transition.

It does get better, good luck and hoping that it is a quick transition for you
