Hello......

I’m almost 7 years post DS and I have never taken a probiotic.
I just returned from vacation where I drank WAY too many sugary cocktails and have had diarrhea since about Thursday. I feel like I can’t stay off the toilet.

I am 5 and a half years post-DS, maintaining a 100 pound weight loss. Up until now, I’ve never taken probiotics, never thought it necessary.

For about the past 2 months, I am up every night, like clockwork, at 2:30AM. On the toilet for hours

I just passed my 5 year surgiversary, and up until recently have had very little desire to drink alcohol. I was also on some meds that were contraindicated with it so it wasn’t an issue.
I am now off those meds and more social, and theref

Onederland......feels onederful - 194 on the home scale this morning.  Now, I usually only use it as a guide, for I know it is 3-4 lbs light, and I work in a hospital that has an official digital read out scale,...

Rumbling gut - So, all day today, I have the rumbling gas.  I read the label on the Del Monte "no sugar added" cling peaches I ate last night...sorbitol.  Could that be the culprit?

new way of thinking about food - As a lifelong dieter, some thinking is hard to change.  I am finding that pork products- usually a no-no on conventional "diets"- are so much more tolerable for me than, say, ch...

eggs - 5 1/2 weeks out.  I thought eggs would be a quick and easy form of protein.  This is my second attempt in 2 weeks, and they just don't sit well!

OK, that sucked.... (TMI!) - 5 weeks post op, missed the toilet for the first time.  Slept in a little (returning to work soon, 9:30 is a luxury for me), made it to the toilet, but not onto the toilet.  Ver...

Has anyone heard of/used papaya enzyme? - I met a lady today who had her surgery 3 years ago, and she suggested it for that feeling when something gets "stuck". Thanks!
