Today you made a mistake. Try to figure out why you made that mistake and then make a plan for the future to prevent it happening again. We are all on a learning curve. I hate to say this but the sleeve is just a tool. It is not a magic bullet. You had surgery less than a month ago and your pushing the envelope already? Obesity is about whats in your head that causes your behavior. I think that you may need to look into getting some help to get your head in the game. This surgery is not like RNY where you get violent diarrea when you eat a bad thing. its about helping you control the cravings long enough to redirect your behavior to something more healthy. I wish you well. I hope I was not too harsh.

That said, regardless of dumping syndrome, most people are carb-sensitive, even normies, meaning the more we eat the more we want. What you call the sugar ride, a great description. If you can detox for several days from all sugar and refined grains (white flour, white rice), you may find it's easier to stay away from them. You may need to white-knuckle it for a while, but it'll be worth it.
I've indulged occasionally, and I've found that a bite or two immediately behind my main meal doesn't trigger the cravings, probably because it doesn't spike blood sugar. You may find that works for you as well, later on, when you've got some good loss under your belt (literally, LOL!). Until then I would recommend you avoid sugar and refined grains.
