I’m 3 weeks PO and I have the worst gas ever now and can’t trust my farts. I also have the runs every day. Maybe it’s from the mushy food or liquids idk. Is this normal?

I believe it is very normal as the first rule that I picked up on this forum was never trust a fart. Many people have had accidents and one poor lady soiled herself in a store. You must be feeling worn out.

I think you maybe having intolerances to the sugars in your Protein shakes or milk. Some people become lactose intolerant after surgery. I think contacting your team would be a good idea. If its just the mushy food or the amount of liquid we have to take it will improve as soon as you get on to more normal foods. I hope you get better soon

I had the runs and gas and bloating also couldn't trust my facts fir the first probably month and a half but I was also on the liquid and puree diet longer than most. But it got better when I could eat actual food except I'm still pretty burpy and I get bloated sometimes overall I feel good.

Although it’s not as common as constipation this is not the first time I have heard of this. I am not sure if you can take something such as immodium?? I would contact my team to be sure. You can definitely try gas ex for the gas and heating pads some say help as well.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
