congratulations on your surgery....take it slow, keep sipping walking, drink protein shakes...etc

wishing you a speedy recovery so you can enjoy your kids!

If you have a specific question for me, PM me or I will not see it, as I don't check responses on the forums and don't have anything forwarded to my email.

850 calories per day is very low and unhealthy long term.

Topic: RE: Sugar Cravings!

it happens to about 30% of bypass patients (it can also happen to sleeve patients, but it's much less common for them). It happens when you eat too much sugar in one sitting. Because our pyloric valve is bypassed, it goes directly into our small intestine and our intestines go into overdrive trying to deal with it. Common symptoms are heart palpitations, sweating or chills, abdominal cramps, dizziness, and diarrhea. Sometimes nausea, too. I'm not a dumper, but I know it can go on for quite awhile. It can be prevented by avoiding or limiting the amount of sugar you eat at one sitting. Since you said you eat a lot of sugar, you're probably not a dumper (unfortunately, I can eat a lot of sugar, too...)

What happens with dumping? Is it an IBS type issue?

It is over 15 years for me, and I only get hungry or cravings if I eat too many carbs. I pay big time for candy with dumping that gets worse every year.
