is there room for another newbie?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all. Finally took my first pill yesterday...hurray! Have to say that i'd thought i'd be bathroom bound, got a pile of magazines waiting by the toilet, but nothing has errupted yet! After reading the other posts, it seems that i should be more concerned about gassing my family out & leaving trails! :oops: The first is not such a biggie, i could do with some me time, but don't want to spend it cleaning up!!!!

I've now decided to be house bound for most of the weekend as a precaution. Thought of an outside poo explosion is just too terrifying!

Good luck to all the other newbies.

    Hi there I'm new been on tabs for 5 days todays, NO NEED TO PANIC i've just been 'regular', and have had no trails! i think its because i'm being so careful as to what I eat at the moment!

    I think everyones different! i jumped onto the scales and i have already lost 9lbs! (can't wait til it shows) I think you'll find this site to be very useful although it does seem that everyone reacts to various fooods differently.

    Fingers crossed you have an 'accident' free weekend!

    Goodluck loosing!

    regards aimee

    Feel the need to blog my experince so far!!! No poo explosions, but huge amounts of bloating - not sure what combination of foods caused it, but managed to easily look 6 months pregnant. Should have seen my hubbys face as i walked in the room lovingly rubbing my belly!! LOL!!

    The other side affect i'm having is wind, trumping, bottom burping, letting ripe -what ever you wanna call it, its all the same. They are so offensive that even manage to offend myself!!!! Hope that this is managable in the outside world (as opposed to my little cocoon of safety at home with near-by toilet). Already working out my strategies of action for public, er episodes....think i'll be ok if i make sure that i'm next to babys or old people!!!

    Wish me luck.

    Hi Happy,

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I am on my 2nd month of orlistat and I still get very bad wind.

    Strangely, I don't need to do it at work but at home my poor hubby gets it full blast!

    Just one of those things i guess that goes with the tabs!

    Lelly xx :magic:
