Gastric bypass and dental cleaning



Recommended Posts

Hey all!
I’m 5 weeks post op and have been doing great, but I got my teeth cleaned yesterday and haven’t been feeling well since. Usually the dentist is an easy thing for me but this time my body aches and my digestive system is definitely unhappy.
My pre-op info did not say anything about the dentist.
Has anyone else had experiences like this? Did your info have a timeline for dental cleanings?
Thanks,
Breanne

It could be coincidence, of course - I can’t imagine what the dentist could have done to you to upset your stomach. Maybe you found it extra stressful after all you’ve been through, or maybe you’re actually a little unwell. If you are concerned call your team for some advice, but otherwise I hope you’re feeling better soon!

That tooth polish has baking soda or something in it. Maybe you swallowed a significant amount and it’s upsetting your healing tummy? That’s the only thing I can think of.or like jacks123 said maybe it’s coincidence time wise and you are just coming down with something?

I agree with the others - I've never heard of that, and I've been hanging out on bariatric boards for a few years now. It's probably just a coincidence.

Thank you all for your opinion! I’m thinking coincidence now too.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
