First Time(r) for Everything

Recommended Posts

You're not eating food with any substance Tony so you're trips to the bathroom aren't likely to produce much of anything yet but if you take my advice, you'll have something in the house just in case because constipation can creep up on you (my surgeon gave me stool softeners and a lot of generic Miralax) but that wasn't a problem for me until I started on pureed foods.  And make sure you have a thermometer.   Above 101°F (38.3°C), you should call your surgeon's office.

Apparently, symptoms and signs of a GI leak included rapid heart rate, fever, rapid breathing, left shoulder pain, abdominal pain, chest pain.  I didn't have a leak test (unless it was done in surgery).

All in all, it sounds as if you're off to a great start.
