Do you dump or get nauseated when eating fruit or whole grains?



Recommended Posts

The more I've been learning about fruit the more I want to make it a part of pretty much every meal, as well as having regular servings of whole grains like oatmeal, brown rice, quinoa, etc. I'm having gastric bypass so there's a greater risk of dumping syndrome. I'm wondering if these healthy but carb-y foods also cause dumping, or if it's mostly just refined sugars and high-fat foods. I'm particularly interested in your particular experiences rather than what we might assume should/shouldn't cause dumping. Thanks in advance for any advice! :)

With the possibly important caveat that I had a gastric sleeve procedure, I have had no issues at all with anything I've eaten, really. I do eat some carbs (usually accompanied by some guilt) but I very much enjoy fruit--sometimes a banana, yesterday a few blueberries, and often an apple (usually with peanut butter).

I had gastric bypass in the beginning of August. By mid-October I was able to eat oatmeal and fruit BUT I had to start very slowly. Even now I can't eat much more than a half a cup of anything at any given time. No dumping, but sometimes nausea and discomfort that passes in about a half hour. I started fruit with applesauce and canned peaches and moved on from there. The thing is to try little bits, and then if something doesn't work once, wait a couple of weeks and it might be fine the next time.

Nope, that just happens if I eat too much junk or fatty foods. I'll either get nausea really bad or my stomach will send it back up. I've had rice and only got sick from it once after that I tolerated it okay.

Oatmeal was fine.
Quinoa was fine.
I eat whole wheat bread but it's always as toast. That's fine too.

I eat pineapples in small quantities
Same with oranges

I even had Couscous a little while ago and handled that okay. Different people can tolerate different things. There's some people that can still eat fatty things... Not sure why they would but they can.

No problems with fruit and grains for me, although I could incorporate more fruits in my diet...when you start adding foods, go slowly, see what your stomach will handle, but in my experience of dumping (early in in my sleeve) was due to swallowing/chewing my Vitamin way too fast and having something a bit too sweet for my comfort.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
