So I am a dumper on carbs or almost anything with sugar like ice cream. I do not dump on carbs like potatoes or rice. What I want to know is if you are a dumper in the beginning are you always a dumper ?

what is Dumping?

It’s called dumping syndrome. It’s when you eat something that doesn’t agree with you and can cause fast heart rate, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and other issues for several hours after eating the offending food.

I dumped super heavy right after surgery on all ready drink vanilla Protein Shakes. That was only 3.5 weeks ago and I’m scared to drink them again but my stomach hurts 15-30 minutes after drinking any Protein Shake or powder now. 😭 Hopefully this isn’t the case forever.

I'm 5 years out from my surgery and dumping triggers change over time. I had a terrible time with breads and anything with more than 12g of sugar per serving initially. Now I can tolerate most breads and a bit more sugar. There's still a cut off for the amount of sugar I can consume before it makes me sick (Publix's Key Lime pie 🤢). I'm not sure why this changes over time, but it does get better. I still have issues with greasy fried foods, but that is probably a good thing since I automatically avoid them now.

Hi, my name is Tek and I'm a dumper.

Dumping is usually forever.

We can dump on sugar or fats. I use dumping as a learning tool and it has helped keep me honest.

Early on, I learned that my dumping meter is sensitive. It taught me to avoid sugars and fats. Now it's somewhat built into my decision making process I simply don't even consider the stuff that will make me dump.

The length of time between dumps widens because, as I said, I learned. Now, dumping is generally pretty rare and usually require an unlikely set of circumstances. It's still a learning experience.

Good Luck,

Tek

Thank you all for your comments. I get violently ill when I dump and it lasts for about 2 hours. Its just awful. I had an episode a few weeks back and I dont even know what I ate to cause it but it lasted 4 hours. I have learned to lay down quickly if I think I might have an episode. I heard that it slows everything down.

This exact thing happened to me! I'm 2 weeks post-op and the one and only time I've experienced dumping was from a Premier Protein Ready-Made vanilla Shake! I have no idea why, because I drank them everyday leading up to surgery and even the days after without any issue ...

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
