Hey @ms.sss I was talking to my team last week & I mentioned sugar & dumping They said it’s not an issue for sleevers which surprised me because of reading about experiences like yours & others. I thought I was just lucky I hadn’t reacted to fruit (or those Christmas treats I sampled). Now I’m very confused.

I'm surprised your team does not know any sleevers who dump (my doc told me there was a chance I could still dump when I told him one of the reasons I wanted sleeve was that I didn't want to dump)! It may not be as big a percentage of the RNY-ers (don't know much about the other surgeries out there, though), but I know I'm not the only sleever on here that dumps.

And yeah, you are lucky :)

I don't know about everybody, but I know the I have experienced negative consequences of sugar.

I can eat sugar in small quantities and have since sleeved. Long story-I don't do well with artificial sweeteners. However, if I get carried away and have a lot of sugar or I don't balance that sugar with protein/healthy fats, I get a definite reaction. I feel a little nauseated, get cold sweats and can get a bit of a GI purge from down below if you get my drift.

My trainer/mentor always said that he could tell as soon as sugar hit his system. I'll be honest. This was before I had surgery and I thought he was a little wacka-do. Now, I totally get it and I liken my reaction to what he described. This reaction or "dump" might not be as severe as RNY, but I certainly do get a reaction.

PS-I have NEVER gotten any kind of reaction from fruit. Only if I've eaten things with processed sugar.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
