Every morning dumping syndrome



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery done in June 2012 so I'm over 5 years out. Although I wish I had lost more than I did, I have maintained this weight within 8-10 pounds for over 5 yrs so I am thrilled with that. In the beginning, I learned quickly that overeating at one sitting will create a disaster, mainly cold clammy sweats followed by need to vomit. That's still pretty true today. Now the last year, I have a new symptom and I need to know if anyone else has this. Every morning after introducing any liquids : coffee or Water, within 1 hours I have the worst dumping imaginable - to the point where I can't leave the house for at least an hour after it starts. Mostly just huge amounts of liquid. I feel fine and it doesn't make me feel sick or anything, just a major purge - every morning. Is it just me or does this happen to anyone else??

Drinking a cup of normal coffee in the morning causes me to urinate a lot but that is not dumping syndrome.

Caffeine has been considered a diuretic by experts and consumers for years. Some people believe that drinking caffeinated beverages will cause them to lose fluids so they can't be counted as part of their daily intake.

Normally if you just had surgery I would recommend taking a probiotic to build up the good bacteria in your gut. But you are 5 years out, so that advise doesn't seem to make a lot of sense unless you have been taking antibiotics recently.

I'm sorry this is happening to you. You don't deserve it.

If you do the same things, you'll get the same results. But if you break the pattern, you may get a different result. So instead of starting with liquids in the morning, what if you started with something solid? Can't hurt to try, right?

Good luck!

I have the same issue; and my mother too. I think it has to do with the coffee ingredients, caffeine or something else in it. With me it seems to be in morning only. Almost by exact timing 30-45 min after I will need to be in a “safe” place or there will be trouble. If I have a cup later in the day no issues. I’ve counted it up as IBS.

My wife was sleeved in December 2016 and has a very hard time as well. Phillips colon health and laxative with stimulant works very well for her. She also has me add benefiber to her Protein Shakes.

I'm not sure how you are with this but sometimes salad works wonders also.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
