I’m just over a year out from bypass and generally have had smooth sailing. However, today I had a Cobb salad for lunch. Not 45 mins later I was running (hobbling) to the restroom, sweating, groaning, clenching my cheeks and praying I’d make it (I did, I’m such a big girl) A few hours after that, my blood sugar tanked and I was shaking, heart racing, dizzy, etc. The only thing I can think is maybe the dressing had loads of sugar/fat in it that I’m not used to. Regardless, it was a gentle (ahem) reminder that my insides still make the rules.
If you need me, I’ll be drinking about 60 more Oz of Water. What a day...

I don’t feel like a champ...I feel like a woman who somewhat destroyed a Dunkin Donuts bathroom. Sad face

Awwww man! SUX!!!! I hate when that happens!!! Hope you feel better soon.

(P.S. Now you know it can happen to you, buy a glucose monitor and keep it beside you. Also buy glucose tablets. When you first start to feel "something not quite right", then you can take your BG. It will begin to show low <70 and that's symptomatic. So you pop a glucose tablet and chew and take the BG 30 minutes later and it should have come back out of the danger zone. And you may actually miss the dumping event!! :D Then it's important to eat some Protein after that 30 minutes to keep your bg from rollercoastering again.)

Hugs!!!

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
