Hi all, I had RNY 12/27/2019 and overall I'm doing well. My biggest issue is loose watery stools after everything and anything I drink, water, protein shake, broth. I am dat 12 today- will this improve with purées? I am so looking forward to scrambling an egg. Thank you for your thoughts
Just be glad it's loose as long as it's controlled. Most have the opposite problem hence the word Miralax on many Menus in the menu thread. If it becomes and issue first ask your surgeon and add Fiber to your diet. I use Fibercel by Global.

My surgeon told me, "Liquid in, liquid out". Loose stools are pretty normal early out from surgery.
Are you having any nausea associated with the diarrhea? Sometimes we develop lactose intolerance after surgery. Try eliminating milk based products and see how you feel. Protein powders that contain whey concentrate are loaded with lactose. Try a whey isolate only powder and mix it with almond or cashew milk.
I was sick for months before I figured out that I was lactose intolerant. Once I changed my protein and eliminated milk I felt much better. I can eat Greek yogurt and cheese, but any other dairy makes me very sick.

I had my surgery almost one year ago and had the same issue. It does improve over time!
