not sure. I wasn't told that. Do you have a medical condition, maybe, that it might affect? Otherwise...?? There are probably no artificial sweeteners that are completely safe (well, neither is sugar, really) - but I don't know anything specific about sucralose.

I wasn’t told this either but I just did a quick google search & discovered this site https://draxe.com/nutrition/sucralose/. Don’t know how reputable the site is but it does say sucralose can cause gastrointestinal problems: affects digestive enzymes, can contribute to irritable bowel, increase insulin levels, cause bloating, gas, … Who knows whether it will affect you in this way. But it maybe why you’ve been advised to avoid it.

Best to ask your medical team why to be certain.

I was told not to do the already made shakes I was told to use Syntrax Nectar whey protien isolate 2 scoops in a 12oz fat free fairlife milk. Thats 60g of protien there. I also use diesel whey protien isolate they both have different flavors. I like the diesel better and the sweets of the nectar.

Was it your surgery center or someone else who said no shakes with sucralose? And did they recommend a different sweetener? And did they tell you why sucralose was bad? Sucralose is just Splenda. We were just told it has to be less than 10g of sugar. I just checked the NINE different brands of Protein powders and shakes I have and only one has no sucralose (Isopure - sweetened only with stevia).

No underlying issues other than asthma and sleep apnea. He said it affects your GI

I hope he told you what shakes he wants you to drink. Hard to find ones without sucralose.

Anything with sucralose gives me days and days of horrible runs with cramping and it is NOT fun.

For me, I cannot (pre or post op) tolerate any of the "fake sugar" at all - every darn one of them makes me sick - literally. I was not able to drink any of the shakes. It was not fun. I do not consume any of it ever. A few years back, I ate ONE "chocolate candy" sample at costco. Turned out it had sucralose. I was sick for days. And it doesn't take long to go through you when it starts. That is enough said !

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
