I am 1 week today post sleeve and hernia repair. Everything was great until Sunday. I had a few sips of a chocolate Protein Shake and OMG the stomach noise could be heard 3,000 miles away!! And 10 mins later running to the bathroom. So ok I had a dumping episode no biggie. But it has been going on for 4 days! I have literally had 2 Jello cups since Sunday and a lot of Water and propel. I know TMI but this is so bad I have to sit in the tub for 15 min to be able to walk. My below parts are raw, bleeding, and very angry. I have ruined sheets, bath mats, and 8 pairs of undies. Today I’m loosing my mental ability. I called my doctor and they totally blew me off and said sleeve doesn’t get dumping and you probably have a stomach bug. Ok but could you maybe see me? Nope. I have an appointment at urgent care today but they will probably be like woah this is beyond us! Any suggestions please. Thanks!!!!

I am no doctor but it sounds like you my have some food allergies to something. Try to stop the shakes. I do ensure high Protein. Hope you get better.

I used to get dumping syndrome if I drank more than a cup of Water in the morning without eating something first. It went away. Also check what type of sugar free sugar is used because some are sugar alcohols and cause diarrhea

I don't believe what you experienced was "dumping syndrome", which is caused by fats or sugar rapidly entering the small intestines. Water wouldn't do it. Nevertheless, I'm glad your problem resolved. :)

So I have been doing a lot of research and food and drink elimination. Also portion sizes. I have taken those down to 1 1/2 ounces. Very careful to follow the 30/30 rule. It is definitely not as bad as it was last week but the diarrhea and horrible bubbling in my stomach is a constant melody, with pretty painful lower abdomen gas pain. I have discovered that semi solid foods like yogurt, pretty thick Protein Shakes, cottage cheese seems to stay inside longer.
I found this interesting article from a couple of Dr’s from a medical website, Gastroentonolgy and Hepatology, Millennium Medical Publishing. It had a lot about uncommon sleeve problems in the early stages. This is the snippet I found interesting.

“A recent prospective study suggested that dumping syndrome also occurs after VSG. It is hypothesized that VSG increases gastric mobility due to increased intraluminal pressure within the remnant stomach, ultimately causing rapid emptying to occur in addition to the know restrictive properties of this procedure.”

well…. Ah…. That might be it, it might not lol. I took a cancellation appointment for the gastroenterologist I see her next Thursday. That seems a million years away. I can tell I was way more upbeat at the beginning of this post now I can tell I’m getting kinda worn down by the constant worry about running to the bathroom then having to get in the shower and wear a diaper!!!!!!! Thanks again to everyone who’s commented it has been very helpful and encouraging.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
