i am 3 weeks post op. Now i have been getting really nauseaous lately aftwe eating very little. My whole body starts to hurt i cant keep my eyes open and feel aick. I lay down and usually pass out. It passes after about 30 min. All i had was 1 cracker with cheese and half a Protein Bar. Is this dumping and is this normal? I am getting quite weak

That sounds like dumping. Crackers and slider carbs should not be a part of your diet at this point.

I have talked to people months out that dump when eating crackers, chips, etc

One more thing that I thought of is the Protein Bar They aren’t all created equal. Check the sugar content. My dr rule of thumb is that it needs to always have more Protein than carbs. Although at 3 weeks out I was still on a soft food diet.

For me the item changes all the time that causes me to get nauseous. I can be eating ground turkey and broccoli one day and the next day get sick.

It would come and go so much in the beginning like in my first month or two that my surgeon prescribed me anti nausea medicine. Since they prescribed I haven’t needed them but I carry them everywhere just in case

i was allowed crackers week two.. i dont know but hope this phase passes soon

Hmmm not sure but you may want to try skipping them and see if it helps. I was just watching a YouTube on a person that tried a cracker at 4 weeks and dumped. She tried again at 8 weeks and had same thing happen.

From what I have seen it seems like we all have to figure out what may cause dumping for us. What causes it for one may not for another.

Learn Grasshopper the cracker will mess you up - Try eating just a little bit of Soup

If i eat any carbs i go down for 30 min also - Supposedly after 6 months this will change

@AJ Tylo

you are right about carbs after bypass especially.

never heard of crackers or Protein Bars week two. Get Protein, enough but not too much.

I just started trying soft protein bars. I dumped the first time. Second time didn’t. Be careful what bars. You need protein first, some Fiber and little to no sugar or carbs. I recommend oh yea one bars, no cow bars, BariatricPal bars, Quest bars maybe. But not this early.

you can get protein crisps but also not this early. I’ve fatigue and weakness from lifelong chronic illness but you need Vitamins and protein and nutrition and avoid things that causes the dizziness and weakness. Hard for me to judge since those are some symptoms of chronic illness but I back off foods that cause trouble after trying them slowly and twice. If they cause dumping or stall I back off.

dont rush to solid foods or even soft. Slow and steady and back track if you get sick. And if you have issues talk to your surgeon or his assistant or nurse.

That stuff is way too solid and carbs so early...

I'll be 4 weeks Monday and I'm still on shakes and just yoghurt... There's no hurry to go to solid foods.. Crackers are way too thick and dry.. cheese again too dry.. And as above some "protein bars" are full of sugar!

Your food should all be soft puree mush consistency this early... You don't want to risk harming your stomach that will still be healing...

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
