Strong flavored foods are making me super nauseous, it’s annoying because I’ve been craving some sweet flavors.
sugar free things are not helping at all.
Are fresh fruits safe to suck on? if so which ones?
I tried a slice of orange and it was the best thing ever but i’m scared of dumping.

My nutritionist told me that most people don't dump eating fresh fruit because of the Fiber it has. She also suggested eating fruit and Protein together, like apple and Peanut Butter or an orange and some string cheese.

true dumping is a lot more common in bypass patients than in sleeve patients, and it's usually caused by eating too much sugar. I've heard of some situations where RNY'ers will dump on fruit, but it's usually things like cake and Cookies.

Makes sense, I actually can’t stand Desserts now so i think i’m safe. I’m really into the fruity flavors I was just scared they would mess my stomach up. I’m not good with intake so I stop after an ounce just to be safe

Be especially careful when combining with alcohol.

With 2 months out there are still some guidelines for you to follow, so listen to your surgeon and his or her diets.

I eat lots of fruit. By lots I mean 1-2 pr day. Mostly appels and banans. Oranges I keep to a minimum because I can't contain myself, and I eat them if I have them, and I don't want to damage my teeth with the acid of constantly eating oranges. Pears my stomach can't handle, grapes I have to eat without the skin. Plums are a no-go. Also I eat lots of berries.

Orange can be hard on your stomach because it is has these "strings". If you want to eat it Chew it well so you avoid that. Also, fresh fruit are better than many other things.

The tastebuds often change after surgery. Sometimes smells often change to. Rarely one gets both - and I got both😂 I haven't gotten a good explanation for this other than it is change in gut hormones.

My sense of smell and taste has changed dramatically. Before my surgery I couldn't stand the smell or taste of eggs in any form. Now I can't keep enough eggs in the house. I love them scrambled.

I had a change of taste preference for a while as well. I couldn't tolerate even the thought about eating something like tofu, so yoghurt or soy milk after MGB. After about 10 months out though this changed back to how it was before surgery.

My smells changed too, so it’s been really hard to eat anything. Now with this virus going around does anyone think canned fruit are ok ? or are they a no no?

Canned fruits are usually in sugar. Just eat real fruit, wash it down before use. There is no evidence that you can catch it thru food.

      This virus is starting to get to me.  I am still doing my exercise (running and walking the dog and strength training but I am finding that I am snacking more, I don't like this!!  
      Is this happening to anyone else? What are you doing to combat it?

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.
