I am sure I'm experiencing dumping syndrome.

Symptoms are sweating, feels like a ball in my stomach. mild-moderate dizziness, lump in my throat.

Can I force myself to throw up to feel better?

I feel wretched!

TIA

Sounds like classic dumping symptoms. Did you eat something just before this happened that might have caused it? Sorry you are feeling so bad, hope you feel better soon.

Well hell yeah I did. lol I just had a little Parmesan crusted chicken, like only 1/4 cup, if that. I was thinking maybe the Mayonnaise and Parmesan base and the carbs of the Italian bread crumbs were too much for me.

OMG it's awful!

CAN I FORCE MYSELF TO THROW UP TO FEEL BETTER?!

Doesn't sound like anything sugary was the culprit.

Wow.

I was just told by my new surgeon today that I'd be on liquids for a month after the surgery.

How soon before you were cleared for those types of solid foods ?

Very sorry. Hope you are getting some relief.

Not sure I'd consider it dumping, but I've not experienced dumping so I don't know.

I do know my first experience having Mayonnaise wasn't pretty. I left it alone for a few weeks and now can manage it ok.

If I eat something overly fatty, I get 'lower' digestive issues, throwing up hasn't been any issue.

Sometimes when I have dumping syndrome, I lean over the sink or stool and try and throw up. If I do throw up, I feel better afterwards. Also it is better when you have dumping syndrome to be in a vertical position rather than in a horizontal position. By that I mean that if you try and lay down, you will generally only feel worse. You may have to sit up and watch TV for a couple hours before the pain settles down.

If you are only a month out it is waaay to early to be eating chicken, it is one of the hardest foods to digest. You should be having soft fish and Beans for Protein, cottage cheese, yogurt.

Yeah I bet that chicken got stuck is what happened.

Are you supposed to be eating chicken this early? I'd look at all your information or call your NUT, to make sure that's approved food this early.

I was still on full liquids a month out and just transitioning to soft foods.

I was allowed chicken but was told to thoroughly chew it to mush. I have the sleeve and I have never experienced dumping. I have over ate twice and the knot in the throat and the sweating. The urge to want to throw up that last bite or two was overwhelming but I didn't want to do that either. I sipped Water slowly and waited for it to pass - took about an hour. Not something I want to experience again.

I am four months out and still can not really tolerate meats. It isn't dumping syndrome because that has to do with high sugar intake. Things get stuck and also our stomachs may not be processing the previous meal very efficiently. So we assume our stomachs are empty when in fact there still might be residual food in there. I feel like a cat with a furball sometimes.

The best Proteins at this point are ones that are ground up or made into meatball/sausage like consistency. Lean turkey meatballs have gone down fine, but I haven't yet had the gall to try a grilled chicken cutlet or the like. I really think I can wait until Thanksgiving to try real bird. I accidentally swallowed some raw ahi tuna without chewing on Friday and I drove to two different ER's (didn't go in) before the scare subsided. Say the alphabet chewing and then swallow. I've never had anything get stuck following this rule.

I was one week post-op yesterday. Tomorrow I get my drain out. I ignorantly advanced my diet too soon on my own as I'm supposed to be on Clear Liquids with Protein, either powder added to clear liquids or Isopure Protein Drinks. Problem is, I can't tolerate the protein mentally. I gag on it. The Isopure tastes like Sno Cone topping like icky sweet Syrup. Ack!

Now I'm back to what I would call a full liquid/soft food diet. I have to get protein. My body craves it.

Because I'm still opening up pill capsules, I have one that I have to wait 30 minutes to "eat" so I take that as soon as I wake up in the morning. Then, 30 minutes later, I put the Prilosec powder from the capsule in unsweetened applesauce and mix it in 1/2 of the container that I've spooned out into a small cup. It's so dang bitter that this is the only way I've found to be able to tolerate it.

If I'm "hungry", which is my term for my body craving protein, I'll have part of a soft egg but I can't eat all of it, just about 1/2. Later in the day I'll have some Idahoan instant mashed potatoes made thin with a scoop of the Protein Powder.< /p>

If I follow this, I don't dump.

Wow, you've skipped to soft foods one week out. Just be aware that moving too fast to solid foods can harm your pouch;' it's still in the early stages of healing. You've really gotta listen to your doctor and NUT. Call your NUT and see if there is anything different you can do. Isopure has drinks that are not shakes in lots of different flavors that you might try. I've also heard a lot of people talk about Unjury.< /p>

Be careful, and be safe. Good luck.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
