Before I had the VGS surgery I was lactose intolerant and would have to take Lactaid supplements before eating dairy foods. Post-surgery I seem to tolerate dairy foods a little better but I still experience bloating. I sometimes feel my sleeve expanding after I eat dairy foods. Dairy foods are a great source of Protein so I refuse to give it up! Anyone else have a similar experience?

Can't you still take the lactaid?

I'm okay with cheese, but I was somewhat lactose-intolerant with milk and ice cream before VSG and now find that I'm totally intolerant and feel bloaty and painful if I have any.

Lots of people become lactose intolerant after surgery. Use your lactase pills. Yogurt is tolerated by some, since the sugar is already digested. Can you get by with yogurt and lactose free milk? I also think the surgery and dietary changes deal a really big blow to the gut biome environment. Try to re=establish a healthy biome with yogurt, real fermented sauerkraut (in Sprouts), root vegetables, broccoli/cabbage, mushrooms, Probiotics. Avoid sugar and processed stuff.

I had to give up dairy. I miss yogurt, but feel much better.

Silk makes a dairy-free yogurt, not sure if it is Almond ( my first guess) or possibly coconut, but I saw it in the yogurt area at my Local Wal-Mart.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
