Late dumping syndrome?



Recommended Posts

Hi!

i was wondering if anyone has experienced dumping syndrome? I’ve heard there are 2 types, early or late... if anyone experiences the late one can I know what you do to get through an ‘episode’ ? If you have the early type can I also know about any experiences and how you get through it?

late dumping syndrome is reactive hypoglycemia (also known as postprandial hypoglycemia). It's not that uncommon in RNY patients - I don't know about sleeve patients. It seems to start when you're a couple years out.

I get late dumping. It typically involves sweats, palpatations, lethargy, gastric distress with as a big finish: diarrhea.

I don't recall exactly when and why I dumped over the years, but it would probably started at 6 or so months. I was feeling pretty confident about things by then. Probably something innocuous, like a glass of OJ, or some equally stupid choice.

How do I get through it? Not really anything that can be done. I bought the ticket I have to finish the ride.

Good luck,

Tek

Just noticed, you have the sleeve?

Just to be clear 'dumping' will be extremely difficult to manage. RNY is where 'dumping' is an issue. I'm sure you know this, but just want to be clear for the audience at home.

Though, my non-op spouse managed to dump once. Now she understands better.

Good luck

Hi! Yes sleeved here and am experiencing all that you said above... not fun! I had absolutely no idea that sleeve patients can get dumping syndrome I always thought it was in RNY... I was diagnosed with IBS just less then a year out from my surgery and last week when I had to speak to my surgeon about a seperate issue, I mentioned my IBS and he said it sounds like dumping syndrome, nothing more was said about it so I don’t know what needs to be done, he’s away on leave currently but really want to speak to him about it and how to deal with it... why is it hard to manage? Do you get it often?

Wow, I'm shocked you would be able to eat (or more likely) drink the sugar necessary.

I love learning new stuff.

I actually didn’t even think sleeve patients got it, but I have been having these ‘episodes’ from about 5 months post op, was told IBS but not even the diet for that is helping me. When I spoke to my surgeon he told me dumping syndrome so I was shocked! I get both the early type and the late type...

I didn't think sleeve patients got it either, but who knows. Maybe some do but it's just not that common? Or it may not even have anything to do with your sleeve - I think even non-WLS people can get reactive hypoglycemia.
