    So happy to hear about your success. Just be sure to manage this and don't let it go as far as I did.
    Other than this problem, I hope everything is going well for you.

    Best of luck!

    I haven't been regular since I had my surgery. I went over a week at a time with no BMs. I had horrible constipation to the point where I was almost in the hospital. It was so painful. I am still not regular. I have to take a laxative every weekend or I just won't go. Can't take them during the week because the results are too unpredictable for me to be at work or in traffic. I am hoping this will eventually work itself out. I certainly can't go the rest of my life being constipated like this.

    Oh! I almost forgot to write this! My husband and I did some googling on what causes constipation. "High protein yogurt, specifically Greek yogurt" it said was notorious for causing constipation. I have felt better since I cut it out of my diet. Before I cut out the yogurt, I was about to go to the hospital because I was so desperate and in pain.

    Hi Jess....believe it or not..that was an issue I had prior to my sleeve!..I was on medication for that...which helps....but now that I have finally had a bm.....now I can't stop going...and now this is day number 3 and I'm afraid that I may have an accident while I'm out!!...my body is all screwed up....I hope u eventually become regular.... if not I would go see the gastrointestinal dr.

    I am actually going through a bit of the same situation. I am on Post-Op Day 5 and still no BM. I am going to take everyone's comments to heart and go buy me some MOM. Hopefully it will help. I haven't eaten anything solid just yet, so I was wondering if had eaten (drank) chicken soup broth, I would go for the higher fat content (higher than water). But no luck yet. I'll keep you posted.
