It's said that sleevers should not experience dumping as much as a person whose had a by pass. Watch your sugar and fat intake. Always keep in mind everyone is different. Should you experience dumping a lot contact your doctor and ask additional questions.

If you aren't experiencing dumping why regret your sleeve?

I actually experienced this after my gallbladder removal surgery last year. I didn't know what was causing it until I started noticing it would happen after I eat certain foods. Real fatty and sugary foods try to stay away from.

Don't regret getting the sleeve, it's going to help you. I'm getting sleeved in oct this year and I can't wait even though im nervous as hell. This is really the time to think that hey this is going to help me with my future and be more healthier. Look at the bright side of getting sleeved.

I'm fearful more than anything because of the unknown, I hear these stories of ppl who experience it and I'm scared! I'm 2 weeks post op on Thursday and I'm feeling so many emotions! I've never felt this vulnerable in my life! I never knew the emotional attachment I had with food till this surgery it's a bittersweet feeling. Thx guys ;)

I'm at almost 8 months out, still get sick if I eat too fast because I waited to long. I don't eat things with lots of sugar or fat....no dumping....

I'm also at 8 months out, and had a similar experience to Sydney above. Sugary and fatty foods go right through me, but it started when I had my gall bladder out several years prior. Since getting my sleeve, I really only get an upset stomach or have indigestion issues when I eat more than 4 or 5 bites of something. Yesterday, it was 91 degrees here, and I was craving watermelon something fierce. I started eating it like I forgot about my surgery, and, sure enough, after about 8 bites, I got sick. Just take it slow, especially in the first 3 months, and you'll be fine. I had buyer's remorse for about the first month, but I could not be happier with my results to-date. BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!

the only thing that has ever caused dumping syndrome-like symptoms is spinach... If I scramble it with some eggs for breakfast then eat some for lunch... I am a horrible mess! weird eh? nothing else bothers this stomach of mine...

    • I already planned to do some "lower"-carbing this week, though I may consider going ultra-low if I feel up to it
    • The "swelling" is from lymphedema. The PS interrupted your lymphatic drainage system And it takes a while for the body to "reconnect." And what you're experiencing with the compression gear is absolutely true! If you don't have the proper garment in place, it will cause worse swelling below the area due to the inability for that lymph fluid to drain. I wear my sleeve every day. If I don't, then my arm gets huge and if I don't wear my glove with it, then my hand turns into a balloon. I do feel better with it than without it. It gives a comfort/secure/structure feeling. LOL. So glad you are feeling better girlie!!! Oh also, you know me...biased low carber, but $10 bet says that if you ditched the high carb crap and went back to low carb, you would notice the end of your belly bloat starting in as little as 3-4 days and maybe a complete resolution of it in 2-3weeks. hehe. Sorry couldn't resist. You know me...always biased. TY for sharing your journey girlie!! You are so brave and have been a true warrior during this time!!
    • I hear ya. So I'm taking a sewing course soon on how to alter clothes. That way I can change all my post surgery clothes to the right size when needed. Also, I will get the right fit for me and not just the generic size. If you have a sewing machine, why not try taking them in yourself?
    • I'm also trying to cut back on buying clothes! My problem is the opposite of yours though... I started buying new clothes after my surgery because it was so fun to look good in everything. When I would find something I really liked, I bought multiples of it. Plus on line shopping is so easy. Click, click, and a present gets delivered to your door I've done better in January, but still found myself shopping. Just this week I had an inspiration though... when I see clothes I like, I am just taking a picture of them or of the outfit, and then replicating it with things I already own in my closet. This is fun also. I swear if I had all the money I've spent on clothes since my surgery I could have gone on an extended vacation in some exotic locale. Live and learn right? When we know better, we do better. Good luck to you on your resolution. Have you tried selling your extra items on Ebay?
    • I know you will get the chance to do everything you used to do because I am convinced of the same for me! 😉 (Thanks for commenting on my blog.)
