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.

The pain was a large cramping and would subside and come again. Happened about 15 minutes and was very painful!

I've at small amounts of honey. I'm going to look into stevia. I'm not fond of it, but it is better than the others.

I definitely will be ultra careful eating from now on.

That was totally dumping syndrome, most likely from the brown sugar.

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!

You’re welcome! And yes, dumping is the absolute worse

My guess is you've experienced your first " dumping: episode. Some are sensatve to even a minute amount of sugar, and brown since it also contains molasses, hence the brown shade , could be worse. That's why you are told no "carbos" you can't plan ahead who will and won't have it! I know of at least one Bari- pal who also dumps for higher fats content.

Sounds as though it could have been dumping or lactose intolerance
Lactose intolerance, I had it happen to me when I ate any cream Soup, dairy or even too acidic foods. Try lactose free and see if it helps. My spoons are now the baby teaspoons and baby bowls.

Hmm could the cream of wheat have expanded in your belly?

This is exactly what happened. It was lumpy and I didn't let it stand. O poured milk on it. I don't think I let it stand to expand.

I had a similar incident a couple of weeks ago with a single poached egg with a bit of hollandaise sauce on it.
Long story short, I was traveling out of town for a wedding, was only 17 days post-op, and we were on a tight time schedule.
The only fast Breakfast option was hotel dining room and I thought I’d be okay eating one of my husbands eggs Benedict (I really did scrape off most of the sauce).
Ate 3/4 of the egg (the waiter just could NOT understand that I was needing to take my slow time eating and tried to take my plate away TWICE in a 10 minute period of time so I rushed eating it so the man would leave me alone and stop hovering over my pitiful half egg.)
Who knows...maybe he was pissed I didn’t order anything and was annoyed I grabbed a saucer and took one of hubs eggs.
Anyway, by the time I walked back to the hotel room, I was in terrible agony. I had eaten eggs twice before and tolerated them just fine.... except before I’d had the luxury of taking my time and they didn’t have sauce in them.
It subsided in about an hour- which was a blessing bc we had to be dressed and in the lobby within 2 hours of that breakfast- but for that hour I was scared to death that I had flown halfway across the country and spent thousands of dollars only to miss the whole thing sitting in agony in my hotel room.
Since then I’ve eaten eggs again with zero problems, but the takeaway is that if I don’t have time, I just skip the meal and not stress too much about getting my Protein in rather than be sick sick sick and hurting
It’s going to all be a learning process and you’re gonna do just fine.

You can take in more Soup because it’s a slider food . It goes in and right out fairly quickly. I could only get about 1/4 of a cup of soup down .I had my RNY on 2/12/19 so I’m only a few weeks out from you. I found that cream of wheats had to be very watery. And of course because we eat so slow the cooler they get the thicker they get. If you try them again thin them out a lot more by using your milk it adds more Protein, and add a little nutmeg or cinnamon for taste. That pain will remind you to eat very small bites and slowly.

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!
I am 16 days post op and I had the same exact thing happen to me when I went from liquids to pureed/ soft food. I found that I longer feel full when I've had enough food it's just a really bad pain in the middle of my chest. I also feel it if I ate to fast or swallowed too much air. I've found now that burping eases the pain quicker.

      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....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
