Has anyone had edibles after surgery? If so how long after & were there any negative symptoms like dumping?

- I want to try edible lemonade during my liquid stage then slowly progress to solid edibles.

Any advice or story's anyone like to tell?

Are you talking about THC Edibles?

If so I waited till I was on full food. And then took it slowly.

Yes, I've had some edibles post WLS as I don't smoke at all. No issues or dumping. Ate a small amount and got a nice mild buzz. I was in the soft food stage when I tried them.

I waited until maybe 5-6 weeks post-op. To avoid the possibility of dumping, get an edible with a very high THC content, and only have a teeny bit. My go-to is a chocolate, but because it has so many milligrams of THC, I only need about a pinky-nail sized amount. For the brand I use, this is about 0.8 grams of sugar.

Another great option is to use a tincture. They can be either alcohol-based or glycerin-based. Although, tinctures work by absorbing into the bloodstream via the mouth, and therefore work more quickly than edibles.

Yeah I was concerned about dumping also. I wanted to have the lemonade edible during my liquid stage but diluted the lemonade with Water. Would the weed still take effect?

Nope, I just started with low dosage low-sugar options. I like this sugar free tea I get from my dispensary. I'll try to remember the name.

I found no issues with getting high post recovery. But it's important to be aware of munchies and prep yourself. I always eat before I smoke a doob or take an edible. I also constantly drink Water so I don't feel hungry.

I think your tolerance and years of use matter as well. If you didn't use it much before hand, go even lighter now. If you were a heavy user before you will probably have no issues getting back into the game. :)

Just go for the strains that are geared to happiness/anti-depression. Cause, you know, it's just more fun. hahaha

You might have dumping, might not. Likely you won't if you had vsg.

Aren't you concerned about getting the munchies? Lol.

I'd go ahead and give it a try.

That is one of the best questions so far! I think I'm going to stick to smoking (I'm only 3 days post op).
