Gas & Bloating 5yrs post op

Recommended Posts

I’ve developed a lot of gas and excessive burping the last 2 months. I had my sleeve 5yrs ago. I haven’t changed any of my habits.

I get excruciating gas pains sometimes and become constipated. When I’m finally able to go it’s diarrhea. Then the pain goes away. I haven’t had a normal bm in 2 months.

It’s just such a long time after surgery I wouldn’t think don’t know if it’s related or should I go to doctor and look for any underlying reasons.

Thank you for your thoughts fellow sleever’s.

I would start with your PCP.

Like you said, it is a bit of time since surgery.

I agree, see your doctor. It seems too long to be related to your surgery. You may have developed IBS.

do you have a gallbladder still? sounds like it could be that … totally worth a trip to a doctor to be sure..

if it is there are meds to help (tho doctors want to cut it out too quickly and don’t often want to even try other methods ) … also i know people who manage gallbladder issues by cleaning out their gastrointestinal tract with colonoscopy prep and it sets their gallbladder right without surgery or drugs…

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
