    I was the same way for this surgery, 3/21/16 although I did have 3 other bariatric surgeries, and didn't want this one I had to, so go in knowing that you have chosen what is considered the gold standard for for bariatrics, yes I'm sure it's your nerves making you feel blah' and great job on the pre op weight loss

    8 days post op

    sometimes some people go through the runs after surgery , and also we consume a lot of liquid,no hard foods, unfortunately you will know if it is dumping syndrome, you will feel week, dizzy your heart rate will increase sweating and some cramping and it last about half hour
