Digestive Issues After HG

Postby cinnimini02 » Jan 28, 2015 4:53 am

Does anyone have any tips for getting your digestive system back on track after HG? I was not able to keep anything down for weeks, so now I don't think my body is tolerating anything the way it should. I couldn't have a BM for 4-5 days and now even though I have been able to go in small amounts, it still causes me extreme discomfort and is hard to do. I think my body needs to get used to food again, and obviously I'm not doing it well.... Any tips?

Lots fo fiber and fluids. Also probiotics. HG takes a toll on us, so it might take some time. Try stool softener too.
