Can I dump 2 hours after?



Recommended Posts

I'm almost 5 months post gastric bypass and I ate 4 strawberries with 1/4 cup blueberries 2 and a half hours ago and I feel so not good! My stomach feels full, I tried throwing up but there's nothing in there. I feel sick and not really nauseous but like I need to throw up. What's going on? help! Veterans I need you.

Hmmm. Were they fresh strawberries? Did you chew them well, or slice them small? I used to have problems with bananas when I bit of a piece. I think it would get stuck. I now slice them lengthways, so they are not round. Theoretically, you could have bitten a piece of a large strawberry, that could block the stoma. Just an idea. Eventually it would break down.

Late dumping generally gives you the same feelings as low blood sugar.

Yep this. This is what I get with RH. I have to eat some Protein and a bit of carb to fix it. I take my blood sugar reading and then dose a glucose tablet accordingly, then eat protein 30 minutes afterward (once my bg comes back up) to stabilize it.

When I eat fruit I try to eat a little yogurt or 2 pieces of walnut with it so I have Protein and fat mixed with the carbs. If I rarely eat fruit by itself it's only 1 strawberry or a 1/4 cup of blueberries.

Found this info on dumping - I had no idea late dumping was a thing. https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/encyclopedia/content.aspx?ContentTypeID=134&ContentID=107
