the bloating has been on and off the last 3-4 weeks due to had lap band removed. felt like i was finally not getting bloated then yesterday felt over bloated, major gas, stool has been backed up started yesterday, and urnine output has been ok/normal. i did have cramping feeling in lower right pelvic / ovary area yesterday but nothing horrible.

Thank you Stephanie, for the information,

Bloating can occur in ovulation.

Pain in one side of lower abdomen can also occur with ovulation.

This is due to release of egg from ovary.

However, as you know there can be a few other causes for these symptoms.

Intestinal cramps, indigestion, irritable bowel & other intestinal conditions can be factor.

Constipation can also cause it.

If the symptoms progressively get worse, you need to take an examination by doctor.

Please take plenty of fluid.

Take abundant fresh fruits & vegetables.

Those can be helpful.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

one last question and thank you for your great help, are fruits and veggies the best natural constipation reliever? are cherries actually a healthy fruit to be eating for snacks? or what is the best fruit / veggie for healthy snack (help weight loss)?

Fresh fruits are good natural constipation relievers.

Cherries are good.

If you can tolerate green leafy vegetables they will be more helpful.

They provide less calories but more fibers.
