  1. I had my first time with dumping syndrome last night. Worst feeling I have ever experienced. I have two questions: 1) I was eating tuna salad which I have ate before... what about tuna salad made me dump and is it weird to have been able to eat it before this (post-op)? 2) is there anything you can do when you are having dumping syndrome to make it better/quicker (lasted about an hour)?
  2. I am 3 1/2 weeks out and wondering when I will start to see the hair loss? Also how long does it last usually?
  3. Thanks Athena rose. That’s really helpful and encouraging!
  4. How long does it take to pass normally? How long does it usually last?
  5. Thank you to everyone for all the posts and support. It has been so helpful. I am 3 1/2 weeks post op and I have lost no weight for over a week now. I am really concerned that this is not working. Is it possible my body has adjusted to the low calories and has stopped losing? How do you know if this is a normal stall and when it will be over?
  6. I am missing Advil. Are there any other painkillers we can use besides Tylenol? Tylenol just doesn’t work for me and I am in a lot of pain.
  7. I appreciate everyone on here being so helpful. I am six days post-op and on a full liquid diet. Every time I drink anything... water, broth, protein shake I get bloated and feel like there is gas in my stomach. It goes away after 20 or so minutes. What is that? Just normal healing or a new normal? Makes it hard to get my water in.
  8. @Gretta I read a comment you recommended a cup to help with gas pain when drinking. Do you remember what it was?
  9. I had gastric bypass on 6/28/18 I live in central San Diego.
  10. I have read the many messages on here about the post-op regret right after surgery and during the dreaded liquid diet stage. I am definitely feeling all of that, but I am also worried that the surgery didn’t work. I feel hungry and everyone says they aren’t hungry after surgery. I don’t feel like my stomach is smaller but I am still on liquids. Do people have issues with hunger after surgery? Are these normal feelings?
