Recommended Posts

Also I would like to add I did surgery on 10/15 and I can tolerate chicken, Ground beef, lamb chop, ribs, turkey and I’ve only had for fish mahi-mahi. I can not hold down tuna, salmon. Have to remember to eat super slow if not I get that mucus in the back of my throat and 🤮 this also happen if I take large bites.

Anyone experience severe dumping syndrome? I’ve been really sick...like I can’t keep anything down. I’ve had Water diarrhea so bad that I had to get fluids 3 out of 5 days. I’ve been nauseous and have thrown up a few times but the severe diarrhea has been going on for 12 days now. The doctor is running lots of tests for parasites and infections but mentioned today that he thinks it is dumping syndrome. My surgery was Oct 12 and I was doing completely fine. In fact, I was planning to go back to the gym but started feeling bad. I’m just worried that my Gastro Dr will just blame my sickness on my surgery and dumping syndrome. Anyone had experience with this?

How are you doing?!?! Any update? Did they figure it out? Thinking of you ❤️

Thanks so much! I’m FINALLY starting to feel better. The tests showed that something is going on in my intestines but didn’t show exactly what I had. My surgeon definitely said it is NOT dumping syndrome. I am on 2 different antibiotics and I’m feeling a little better so that’s hopeful. I go back to the Gastro doctor tomorrow so I will see what else they plan on doing. Hopefully this is just a bacterial infection that will go away after the medicine.

Starting Weight 222

I was asked to lose weight before surgery so my surgery weight was 212. My current weight is 180 after 8 weeks and it's starting to look and feel really great. I can't wait to see 150.

Just wanting to check in and see if my weight loss is average and falling in line with others who've had VSG in October 2020. I had surgery 10/16 starting weight 213, currently at 183. Down 30 lbs. How is everyone doing?

You are doing great for your starting weight, some may have lost more, some may have lost less in that time but we are all different and with a lot of different post op guidelines.

Keep up the wonderful effort!

Wow! That's amazing, congrats. Mine has been kinda wierd as well. I feel like the 1st few weeks was pretty consistent weight loss then the last 3 weeks or so it's been 1-2 lbs per week, which is still good for me... but I just wanted to know if I was at least close to my fellow VSGers and seems like I am thankfully. I love the and COUNTING, that's right 💪👏

Got a question? How much is everyone else eating like I can have maybe 2-3 oz of Protein and very little vegetable or mash potatoes in one setting. I feel like I’m still not where I should be in that aspect.
