Dumping syndrome or something else?



Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm a little bit over 3 weeks post op and have been following the rules to a T. I haven't had any sugar or carbs whatsoever. However, a few times this week, including tonight, I've experienced horrible stomach pains followed by the you-know-what that comes along after that. It's driving me crazy bc I'm doing what I'm told. Can someone tell me if that's Dumping syndrome? I have heard a little about it. I don't have all the symptoms but the two I said prior.. help!!

Maybe eating too fast or not chewing enough..slow down and chew and see if it helps.

You won't get true dumping syndrome with the sleeve. But if you changed your supplements or shakes recently, check the nutritional info labels, bc they may have some hidden sugar or something else.

It also could be trying to eat too much volume at once.

I experience the same thing, and I think it's just how my body processes being on an all liquid diet. I get stomach cramps, and then I'd better find a restroom quickly because the "waste" does not want to wait! I met with my NUT today, and she advised adding in some Benefiber, so hopefully that will help. Also, I get to start on pureed foods today (woo hoo!), and I'm hoping that helps, as well.

It happened to me. I was drinking too closely to eating ( it should be at least 30 minutes, for me at that stage, I waited longer). Good luck with it!

I would go see your doctor. I had this symptoms (the pain was absolutely terrible) and it was thrombosis in the intestines. I'm not saying you have it, but if you don't get better you should see him/her. It may be something that needs treatment.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
