I am 5 mos post op and have had zero complications till now
I just ate salad with chicken (take out ) house dressing not sure what’s in it.
So about 15 min after eating I got really hot and sweaty and got scared but not chest pain at all then it passed
Has anyone had this happen before

I’m betting the house dressing had a lot of sugar in it.

Beginning of a type of dumping syndrome: you feel awful. Happens if you eat too much sugar or too much in general

yes, twice in 18 months. First time was sauce most likely, never figured out second one at all.

walked around for 15 or 20 minutes and it all passed but was not fun at all and somewhat scary.

it happens to me when I eat chicken. Chicken is plumped full of steroids and antibiotics. My doctor has told me to only eat organic chicken at it has helped.

Makes sense doesn't it! If you are what you eat, then it is mandatory to only take in healthy High Protein items with naturalvitamins and minerals. Didn't Thoreau say we should simply simplify. Don't need preservatives if you're eating fresh clean items.

Yep. Sounds like dumping to me. I get it from sugar or heavy fat.

Only about 1 1/2 months out. I haven’t experienced dumping syndrome and even the thought of it scares me.

to me it feels like a panic attack. I have had it three times.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
