Start eating after sleeve gastrectomy.
When can i start eating and drinking at the same time after gastric sleeve surgery?
After gastric sleeve surgery, it is generally recommended to avoid eating and drinking at the same time in order to prevent "dumping syndrome," which is a condition that occurs when food and liquids move too quickly through the stomach and into the small intestine. Dumping syndrome can cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps.
The timing for when a patient can start eating and drinking at the same time will vary depending on the individual and their specific surgery, but it is usually around 8-12 weeks after surgery. It's important to follow the instructions provided by your surgeon and dietitian to ensure a safe and successful recovery.
