Is it normal to have explosive diarrhea everyday after surgery? I'm still on the all liquid diet. I first thought it was dairy, so I cut that out. Now it's anything I eat, besides Water. I'm not nauseated. I'm scared to leave my house because when it hits, I got to go now. I'm not dehydrated. I'm getting in the water. Oh and I recently started getting dizzy spells.

most people have the opposite problem (constipation), but this isn't the first time I've heard about diarrhea. I wonder if you've developed an intolerance to something. It's not uncommon to become lactose intolerant after surgery - although for some it's temporary.

That's what I thought. I was surprised when it first happened, because I was totally prepared for constipation. I thought about lactose, so I started taking a lactose pill before I ate, still happened. Then I went 2 full days without any dairy, still happened. It's just weird.

I had that during the liquid phase but once I got to soft foods, it's the opposite problem. My doctor pretty much said that if you're only putting liquid in, what comes out is going to be pretty similar. Sorry, gross I know!

Lol it's okay. I am prepared if that happens.

Not that uncommon actually. My first bm after surgery was all liquid. Literally just ran out of me when I was walking (thankfully to go to the bathroom).. Whoosh! ! There was no warning & no clenching was going to stop it. A friend continued to have break through liquid bms (even when passing wind so be careful). Her surgeon actually suggested before her surgery that she purchase disposable knickers - very good buy.

Oh no, I have been close to that happening!! My new model is, don't trust a fart. I have become very close with my bathroom. I straighten up stuff, while waiting for this to pass. I'm just going to roll with it.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
