Well tonight I had my first dumping episode. I ate cantaloupe, which I thought was ok but later found out that even fruit sugar can give you dumping. Let me tell you I will avoid at all costs in the future!! Bloating, stomach cramping, nausea, sweats, salivating. It’s the worst!

Yep I wanted to be sick and go to the toilet at the same time as well as being lightheaded, sweating and cramps! Absolute nightmare!

So I have a way to compare, how far out from surgery are you?

Who would have thought that cantaloupe could cause so much grief. Thanks for the heads up. Hope you are feeling back to normal by now.

I had my first case of dumping recently and it was from a cough drop that was sugar free ! I had diarrhea for a day and a half and couldn’t eat anything ! I’ve been straight liquids since the episode and am losing a lot of weight .

That may have been from the artificial sweetener that it worked as a laxative. This is the case for many people. Even those without WLS.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
