Before I start I would ask that you please be kind or don't comment. I'm very emotional this last week.

I had surgery 1 week ago today. I was all excited I get to go to full liquids today. I had half a YQ yogurt today and was fine. I ate baby bites. I had 1 cup mushroom Soup strained. For some reason soup I can get to go down without pain and relatively quick.

I'm allowed to have cream of wheat and put a tiny amount of brown sugar (I do not use ss) and fair life milk. It seems clumpy and thick but I tried to stir and rolled it around my mouth. I had to stop. I felt extremely full. Not sure if I are to fast or what, but I though I was going to die for 15 minutes. Terrible stomach cramps, which pretty much just subsided.

I'm scared to death and never, ever want that to happen again. Do you know what happened?

Thank you for your help!

Are you being facetious?

Well, that's why I asked. Since I'm a week out from surgery, I would think that's an odd question.

I haven’t had surgery yet, but it seems to me like your body is still healing and it didn’t like what you did. I’ve heard that people’s tastes and tolerance change, so while I know you don’t want that to happen again, you may not be able to avoid it every time. And ive heard too, what may bother you now, may not in a few months. Best of luck!

I definitely am still healing, as I'm only a week out. Maybe too much too fast?

Best wishes on your upcoming surgery!

Sounds as though it could have been dumping or lactose intolerance

That was probably exactly it. It takes awhile to learn your new stomach. I did the same thing with cream of wheat and ate it too thick. It could’ve been one bite too many and it also could’ve been from the brown sugar. I was told absolutely no sugar or anything with high fructose corn Syrup. They really didn’t want me using artificial sweeteners either, only Stevia. It will get easier! And when I was at your stage I was a harmonal mess ugly crying for absolutely no reason. Big {{{hugs}}}. It DOES get easier after the first week or so

I think it was too thick and maybe too much. Possibly the sugar. Will skip the sugar next time and make it very thin and SLOW DOWN! Thanks for the encouragement!

I'm doing great otherwise. I've lost 27 pounds and people notice. I have bags under my eyes and they have dramatically reduced. It seems all around inflammation reducing. It's a wonderful feeling.

I don't think it was the sugar. The Dr's have sent me home with laden sugary pain medicine that is liquid. I've not had one problem with it. I honestly think it was way too thick and it expands. I also think I ate too fast.

Thanks so much for asking Goody! I hope you are doing great too!

It seems to me that your body rejected it, basically. When I eat something my stomach doesn't agree with, I now get immediate stomach pains, which aren't quite cramps, but I definitely 'know' not to eat that again. Being that your surgery was just a week ago as well, you are still healing, so try not to panic. I take it the pain is not continuous or anything like that? It was just a one time thing with the cream of wheat?

Edit: I just read the others' posts now, and yeah, it could have been the brown sugar or possible dumping. I think I read it doesn't happen as much with the sleeve, but it's definitely still possible, so maybe try the stevia next time instead? Also, your tastes change (sometimes dramatically) after surgery, so it could be that you just don't like one or the other anymore.

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
