Imagine trying to get proper nutrition with a reduced path on what was an unhealthy GI tract to begin with.Originally Posted by jeanne
I read this comment on WebMD:
So if you continue with a poor diet you are setting yourself up for major health problems.Gastric bypass surgeries may cause dumping syndrome. This occurs when food moves too quickly through the stomach
and intestines. It causes nausea, weakness, sweating, faintness, and possibly diarrhea soon after eating. These symptoms are
made worse by eating highly refined, high-calorie foods (like sweets). (emphasis mine) In some cases you may become so weak
that you have to lie down until the symptoms pass.
I'm not surprised that they (and probably many others) ended up disabled.
Would you agree that,oddly enough, the very thing that may have prevented the need for surgery
in the first place is also what they HAVE to do now to stay alive - eat healthy.
Oh the things we do to ourselves through ignorance and stubborness.
