I'm 6 weeks since VSG and I dump too.. Anything overly fatty or sugar have me feeling immediately nauseated then 1 HR later I'm on the loo.

I've experienced this, especially in the period right after surgery (Protein shakes of all things. My body absolutely cannot handle them). Trying to get through the first two months post-op with no Protein Shakes was...uh, not what I expected with this surgery.

I still have a problem with super greasy or rich foods, but it tends to cause nausea and disgust right away, as if my body is telling me "girl, you will NOT like where this ends, stop now."

People: get your information straight. You CAN DUMP with a sleeve. And it's brutal.

Any surgery that removes a portion of your stomach can cause dumping.

I have not seen people saying that you can't just that it is less likely with the sleeve. which I think would still prove to be true.

I don't know if it is a good thing (to help you make changes)

or a bad thing (for obvious reasons)

but we should all be here to support one another on our journey to better health.

I dump, too, at 3 years out. Do you usually vomit or poo? Just curious.

I don't vomit or have diarrhea. I get horrible horribly nauseated to the point I cannot move, just curl in a ball. My heart races and my stomach cramps but no pooping. I sweat and if it's really bad I have huge amounts of urination. (15-20 times in 30 minutes with floods of pee ) It's very similar to hypoglycemia.

Afterwards I'm exhausted and dehydrated and sometimes hungry. This happens about 3-4 times per week.

It can be brought on by sugar, fat, too much food volume, drinking after a meal.

Ah. I usually get the sweats, tummy pains and vomit. If I eat ice cream or cream based Soup, it all comes out the back door in a few moments.

I've dumped from clam chowder before too :( too much fat.

How can you get dumping syndrome from a Protein Shake? When Protein does NOT cause dumping? Sounds more likely to be lactose intolerance. And there is a very simple way to avoid it: stick to the diet that your NUT gave you. Also one study is not the end of the story. They didn't say 45% in fact have dumping syndrome, it said that they had symptoms that MIGHT be suggestive. And yes when I eat crap ....wait for it... I feel like crap. So what do I do... I try not to eat that stuff. I LOVE that my new tummy dictates healthier food choices. I crave protein and veggies. I cannot tolerate junk food. That is a good thing. That is why I got the surgery.

You obviously don't have dumping or you wouldn't be "thankful" for it. And yes, you can get dumping from a Protein Shake. If it has too much sugar or fat or the Fluid empties into your lower intestine Too fast and there is any sugar at all.

Dumping isn't "feeling like crap from junk food." It f**king sucks. I'm 120 pounds and I dump so I know I'm eating right okay? I'm not living on junk food.

Rude post. I love how people that don't suffer from something think that understand it.

Let's see if you're still sticking to your nut diet in a year. And if I stuck to my nuts recommended diet of low carb and 1200 calories ... Wait for it... I'd be dead of starvation by now.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
