How many years after surgery could you eat a plate of spaghetti without feeling nauseous?

Wow. The experience is very similar.

I waited until I was in MM to test the waters with Pasta. And because I've worked to develop new food choices, I actually prefer my zoodles and Zeroodles to eating real Pasta. No carb hangover. No heaviness or nausea.

I don't eat Chinese take out cuz of too much hidden sugar and RH. I make it at home and eat it at least 2x a week usually.

I don't eat rice any more, but I've had a bite of Mexican rice with charro Beans without issues.

No, the experience is not that similar. Because with the sleeve, you're far less likely to suffer from dumping syndrome. But thanks for your input.

Well, with spaghetti, you likely would not have dumping issues as much as it would sit very heavy and cause pain. It could cause some people to have RH, but I consider that to be different than dumping.

RH as in reactive hypoglycemia?. In the literature, RH is usually a part of dumping syndrome.

RH is considered Late Dumping Syndrome. It's not super common as in a big majority have no issues with LDS or RH.

When most people talk about dumping, they mostly think of the Early Dumping Syndrome. Two different things really...One is very sudden and acute. The other happens anywhere from maybe 1-2-3 hours out and can sneak up on you and it's a pretty critical situation if you don't catch it before your bg falls too low. Mine has been as low as 36 and I was in panic almost incoherent from it.

I eat spaghetti squash or zoodles (zucchini noodles) with no problem, but........ I was not allowed to eat veggies for 8 weeks post op. A "plate full" is now a very small plate - not the big giant plate with 2nd helpings that i used to eat. I made some lasagna this week with gluten free Pasta, and although I CAN eat pasta, I prefer to use veggie substitutes most of the time. Pasta and other simple carbs (and any grain based carbs, for that matter) is not something you should be thinking about until you get closer to goal weight and need the extra calories to maintain your weight.

The whole idea of surgery is to limit your portion sizes and therefore your goal should be to eat the most nutritional food possible not going back to eating high carbs and empty calories; that's what caused all the weight gain and issues in the beginning.

Start experimenting and learning more healthy options

Are these your goals? To eat what you've always eaten?

For some of us ... yes. I never intended to change what I ate long term, just the quantities and ratios. Not all of us have the same issues with food, nor the same goals.

Some of us have been around here a while and have come to realize there are a range of experiences with both VSG and RNY patients. There can be as many differences with your fellow RNY-ers as similarities with VSG-ers. So don't be quick to assume that your experiences will be more similar or more dissimilar just based upon surgery type.

If you care about this sleever's (who has occasionally experienced light dumping syndrome) opinion, then yes, I have no issues with all the foods you mentioned.

I like the Carb Nada Pasta they sell on here. I eat a serving maybe once a week. Sashimi will solve all your sushi issues. YUM

I’ve had salmon sashimi twice so far and was surprised my pouch handled it better than cooked fish or tuna. Of course each experience is different. I had already give. Up Pasta for years prior to RNY. I was using shiritaki, (better than rice makes a good shiritaki rice they also make a sushi rice) i had also started subbing cauliflower rice, occasionally veggie based pasta. I’d mix better than rice, shiritaki rice and a Protein (usually something vegetarian) all pre-surgery. But things change and I am still learning to adapt. But for me personally certain foods are off limits. Unless there is a healthy, but just as tasty alternative.

but one month out. It’s way too early to worry about a plate of pasta or sushi. Better question is, how has your relationship to food changed and how will you adapt going forward. Go through the appropriate phases and try new things slowly and one at a time. And put thoughts out of your head about what you might eat in the future. For now it’s hydration, protein and nutrition.

but that’s life. And yes sometime down the road as you start getting closer to goal weight you treat yourself to little things as long as you meet your target protein, and don’t break the calorie bank. Of course you can do this early on just set standards and don’t break past them.

of course everyone is different but we all started the bariatric surgery journey for a reason.

I get dizzy when I have too many carbs. Im over a year out and probably could eat a small serving of spaghetti but if I overdo it, it makes my pouch feel like it’s going to explode and negative conditioning is very real so I stay away. 😂

When I make spaghetti for my family, I eat maybe 1/4 cup of noodles and a small serving of sauce/ sausage. Anything beyond that and the unpleasant dizziness kicks in... Just not worth it. 😅 I usually go to the gym or for a walk during dinner on spaghetti night. Desperate times calls for desperate measures.

I also want to ask If I was ever going to be able to eat sushi again. Or Chinese food. I ask because I'm one-month post-op and there are veggies I don't even tolerate yet.

One month post-op is quite early. You'll run into intolerances that might vanish into thin air just a couple of weeks later. Take it slowly with introducing new foods.

Plate of spaghetti? Depends on the size of the plate of course, lol. Pasta or other more complex carbohydrates never make be dump.

What enjoying a full plate of spaghetti means now 😂

You could use a smaller plate and then it would be full! hahaha

As to the OP's question... It took me a few months I think. And then I'd get the slimies and throw up. Now I find it too heavy - it just sits in my stomach. I might try out those edamame noodles and see if they suit my stomach better.

It is really hard when the cravings hit - we have a lifetime of head stuff to deal with. Maybe find some alternatives to fill that craving?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
