  7. Bobby873 added a post in a topic Constipation   


    I have to admit that a week out the worst part of my Gastric Bypass was constipation by a long way.............

    I used Senokot tablets which can be purchased as a syrup or granules contain Senna, a natural plant extract which works by stimulating the muscles in the bowel in a similar way to figs and prunes. Helping to bring gentle, predictable relief.

    Really worked for me.


    Good luck !!!

    Guess I was one of the lucky ones. My wounds had been "Super glued". Best thing ever.....

    Totally healed within a couple of weeks and now you would hardly know that the wounds had been there.

    No stitching and no steri strips.

    Good luck

    Success is getting what you want, and happiness is wanting what you get.

    Good luck and I am sure you will be just fine.
  11. Bobby873 added a post in a topic OK, this is harder than I thought   


    We all promote change, but when it comes down to it, change is difficult.

    If you want to change then its worth fighting for.

    I have found that after the operation, things are a little easier, but the smell and temptation can still be around.

    You just get stronger with time.

    Things do not change, we change.

    Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both the new wants and the ability to satisfy them.

    Good luck and I am sure all will go well.

    The best treatment maybe deep breathing and lung exercises, however if it remains I would get it checked out by the doctor.


    Good luck
  13. Bobby873 added a post in a topic Stalls are NOT fun & Crossfit   


    I am sure that this is just a temporary stall, afterall you have do so well up to now and with over 30lbs lost todate.

    End of September is still quite early and you are walking every day, which will help the whole process.

    Keep going and it will happen for sure and all your wishes will come true

    I was told to wait a least 6 weeks before any type of light exercise.

    Good for you
  15. Bobby873 added a post in a topic grumbling/gurgling non stop   


    Very early days and agree with lovemi4lifebaby.

    I have experienced grumble and gurgle, but only after eating and this for me was a sign that my new pouch was just settling in.

    This can change with different types of food, some seem to be better than others. Everyone is different.

    Give it some time, however if your still concerned check with your doctor to be safe.
