I had my Nissen in Feb. 2011. I have had several instances of low blood sugar ever since. I finally started testing my sugar regularly and journaling my food and exercise to see if there was a pattern. I saw an endocrinologist and got diagnosis of reactive hypoglycemia. Also saw a nutritionist who gave me lots of information and sample menus. With 3 meals and 3 snacks recommended, I found it to be way too much. Had stomach pains after eating 1/2 the recommended lunch, so I skipped the next snack. Went for a walk after work and had a sugar crash. Dr. says this is a "not uncommon" side effect from the surgery.
Is anyone else dealing with this?
How do you get in all the meals and snacks while keeping your tummy happy?

I have had a great recovery and absolutely no heartburn since surgery. Any ideas out there?

Peggy-

I had this bad after my redo in August. I finally have gotten control of it by eating a bit more frequently and eating more fruit. Sugar crashes are nasty.

Take care,
Bill

Thanks Bill. Glad I'm not alone in this. Thought perhaps I would just divide the meals in half and call one of them a snack. Maybe it will help get the last couple of pounds off of me.
