I have seen a few posts like yours, so you are not alone!

Hard to say what is up with you without a bit more detail - has it been a week, a month? Is it a brief stall and will come right? How’s your eating and exercise? Are you nearly at your goal? etc etc.

But one suggestion is to haul out your post surgery papers (or look here in the food/nutrition pages) and give yourself a refresher by repeating your post surgery eating weeks - pouch/sleeve “training” my surgeon calls it. So you will go back to liquids with Protein, then move on to purée - get that protein in and Vitamins, and 8 glasses of Water. And as you move into solids, keep a good record of what you are eating...

Keep us posted? This is a great community for advice and support!

Four months out and I haven't lost weight in three weeks. I'm not panicking as my goal was to get healthier and get off my daily regime of 10 medications. To date I'm down to only two medications and my blood sugar, BP,gout,snoring while sleeping and Gerd all got better. I'm eating better but much less and though I exercise I'm sure I could do more. Overall I'm happy with my progress.

      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.
