  4. Vegetarian or Vegan Eating

    This is a place where the emphasis is on supporting vegetarian and/or vegan styles of eating in terms of bariatric surgery and nutrients. No meat vs. non meat bashing, trash talk or the like are allowed. All are welcome in support of getting in your healthy veggies and fruit. Please feel free to ask questions.

  5. Recipe Sharing

    The sub-forums here are for sharing recipes. There are two different main sections: diet phase and special diet needs. Note that in most cases, a higher diet phase allows foods from lower phases (you can have a full liquid even if you are on solids), so put the recipe in the minimum phase where it can be eaten.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
