Question to you knowledgeable people out there...I've been able to, for the last six months, tolerate more carbs then the average bypass patient here I've noticed. I'll list things I eat and I'll get comments in my journal sometimes about how they'd never be able to tolerate all those carbs, so I've come to the conclusion that my body can handle more carbs. I do try to stick within the limits of what my dietitian gave me, but that's still higher then what most post-ops seems to tolerate I'm finding by reading along in here. My question is this: I've tolerated a high amount of carbs for the last six or so months now (I'm six months post-op) and now I'm developing dumping syndrome (not bad, but enough to slowly deter me from certain things) and I am suddenly dumping off light bread, sometimes light fat free yogurt, just various things. What I'm curious to is if your body, post-op, can develop the intolerance to a higher amount of carbs even though it started out tolerating high amounts. I mean, I'm fine if that's the case, but I never knew, if it is possible, that it is possible. It'll definitely take me some huge adjustment to my diet changes yet again if that's what's happening. Any opinions or experience I can lean on as to what's happening here? I just find it funny that I tolerated the same amount I'm eating now (carb wise) and now it gets me on the toilet relatively fast the last week here. I'm not liking it, that's for sure, though this is what I wanted the surgery to do (deter me from bad food behaviors and choices). Thanks in advance!
