Joy:.

How far out are you? If you are only a couple of weeks out you really haven't had much to eat if anything at all and there probably isn't anything for your body to evacuate, otherwise, discussing this with your doctor would be important. Ask them if you are able to take.

Miralax.

It is a tasteless, natural powder, can easily be mixed with shakes or applesauce and it does help keep things regular..

Try to limit dairy intake and up fiber if you can..

Iron.

Supplements can be a pain b/c they can cause constipation..

I have been blessed that I do not have this issue but I also balance my meals to include high protein and high fiber foods..

Activia.

Yogurt rich in acidophillus has been a lifesaver for me..

Hope.

You get better and bring it up to your surgeon. That's why they get paid the big bucks...

No...remember you gotta eat enough to produce a bowel movement to have a bowel movement. If I can have a bm 2 times a week, I am happy. and the cod liver oil is natural, cheap, and you will notice nothing different when you start or stop taking them. at 3 months out you should be able to take the little capsule...they are a soft gel, my doc cleared me, but please ask your own doc... oh...and a bottle of 100, is only 3 bucks at walmart...

I am 7 days po and I haven't gone yet. Don't feel the need either. Besides, how much can you really go on just clear liquids?..

Same old, same old. I was daily regular before and daily regular now. Not right after.

Surgery.

Of course. Was all cleaned out. Nothing there. Diarrhea and loose at first. Back to normal within a week. I drink my water and have fruits and veggies daily.



Food for thought:.

The small and large intestines are for.

Letting go.

Of shit both physically and mentally When we are not.

Letting go.

Mentally, our body responds in kind. In my bodywork with people, colon issues are often related to obsessive thoughts, compulsiveness, control issues, and releasing or holdIng onto shit, beliefs, and attitudes that aren't needed..

Not a yuck question but a good one!..

I'm 18 days PO. I add.

Benefiber.

To every water bottle I drink. I take a probiotic every day, and if I don't have a BM naturally, I take a stool softener the next day, and I go. This is working for me pretty well. When you're on mostly liquids, you'll have diarrhea unless you add fiber to your beverages. The.

Probiotics.

Keep the good bacteria in the digestive tract...

I was having huge issues with constipation until I started taking.

Probiotics.

I would go 5 days without a BM and then resort to using a Fleets enema. I was in severe pain from it..

Our bariatric coordinator suggested the.

Probiotics.

(like eating.

Activia.

Without the yogurt/sugar/carbs). I take one a day and now every morning I go like clockwork again. I take Philips Colon Health..

Probiotics.

Are also available in chewables from Bariatric advantage and other sources. It really works for me!.
