So....Interesting. I started the iron (half the dose recommended just to see how it was going to affect me) and instead of making me constipated, I've actually had normal bathroom times every single day since I started taking it. I haven't had a daily BM since I was on mushies after my surgery until now. I would go sometimes a week with nothing and then just rabbit turds. So far, I'm liking this iron supplementation! Giving it a few more days and then I'll move to the full 300 mg dose/day, hopefully this continues!
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
