I’m 7 years post op but occasionally when I drink something sweet I get An all over sickness after just a couple of sips . It’s hard to describe except for complete misery . It lasts about 20 mins and then I’m fine . Other days I drink a bottle of wine and no issues at all . Anyone else have this or know why it happens only sometimes ?

the sugar maybe? Since liquids tend to not stay in the tiny stomach long and go into the small intestine quickly causing a light dumping syndrome?

I’ve had dumping lots of times from eating too many sweets or even sweets on an empty stomach but the symptoms from that are completely different froM this. This is a head to toe miserable body ache . I imagine It’s what poison would feel like if it was moving through my blood stream but it only lasts about 20 mins.

Are the sweet drinks diet? Just wondered if it’s a reaction to an artificial sweetener??? Wine is sweet naturally from the fructose in the grapes. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I’d just drink wine all the time so you don’t get sick. 😉😁😁

I would guess the sugar. It does that to me sometimes as well.

I get the hyperglycemia symptoms, sweeting, shaking, seeing spots when I eat Too much sugar . This is a much different feeling.

Years ago, pre-wls, long long time ago, I used to experience something similar with red colored alcoholic drinks. I have no idea what caused it or why but it wasn't fun. I'd be achy and sore almost like a fever or flu - but then it would pass.

Same here. Sometimes. Getting better, overall, but hoo boy, those times when it hits. It's the processed sugar. I LOVE sweet southern tea, and can't have it anymore...

I drink unsweet tea or use Monk Fruit but I had a huge donut this morning and no issues with that . It’s all very strange how some things effect us and others don’t.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
