So I emailed my nutritionist in the am and asked if I can move on to creamy Soups (I'm on day 7). She said just listen to your body. I was so eager to try Cream of Mushroom that I added a quarter can of whole milk when it called for a whole can. I misread my full liquid diet directions and poured myself half a cup. Well, lets just say I know my limit now. Less than a quarter of a cup!! Not only that , thirty minutes later I ran to the restroom 3x!! Was this dumping or am I lactose intolerant??

I have lactose intolerance. My symptoms are bloating and gurgling first then an attack of diarrhea. I would say you have a good chance of it being either of the two. You could try using Lactaid milk and seeing if it helps. Try one of the lower fat versions and see how you tolerate that first. Good luck.

It could be both. The issue is probably milk + whole milk + to much at a time. Soups run right through out, and your body can't handle that fat or the huge intake.

Try swapping it out with skimmed or lactose free milk, or even some sort of vegan milk and see. While I think it is best (healthier) to use whole milk instead of light versions, listen to your body and what it can handle. It is only day 7, and your treshold for what you can eat and handle will change about every day for the next 4-6 months.

It is not uncommon to be lactose intolerant after surgery, but on day 7...well...nahh, it is probably just the healing process.

dumping usually includes heart palpitations, sweating, and dizziness. It goes on for quite awhile and people usually lie on the floor thinking they're going to DIE (well, not literally, but I understand it's one of the worst feelings EVER).

It is better than a gall bladder attack😆 but yes, it is not a very good feeling - once tried one tends to try to avoid feeling that way again.
