Sleeve dumping VS Bypass dumping



Recommended Posts

Hey! So can anyone who experienced dumping with a sleeve and revised to bypass and also experienced dumping with that tell me if it felt different? I’m currently sleeved and just found out the IBS I was diagnosed with after my surgery isn’t IBS after all and it’s actually dumping syndrome! I didn’t think sleevers dump so I was shocked but it totally makes sense now... anyway due to my other issue with GERD, I may need revision surgery.... sooo I’m curious, I hear a lot about bypass and dumping and know that it’s personal and not all patients dump and if they do it may be different triggers for everyone but if you experienced dumping while sleeved then after bypass, is it the same? Was it worse?

Felt the same to me! But now I try to avoid my triggers as much as possible so I generally dump less.

Good Luck ♥️

FYI:

My food intakes are from BariatricPal and thus I have not experienced dumping syndromes as a gastric bypass on Aug. 28, 2020.

I make it a point to drink liquid 30 minutes after eating.

I went to Crackle barrel and ate the chicken pot pie and found that I felt over filled with no dumping syndrome. I made sure what I put into my mouth was moist. Anything dry, I avoided as instructed by Dr on my post op one month appt.

Good news.

Learning and following your plan is probably the best thing you can do that will carry you through to success.

It would be hard to eat enough sugar or fat in the first couple months to get you to dumping, but continue your vigilance. You may never find out if you dump simply by working your plan. Not that working your plan is simple, just that it is a simple principle.

Keep up the good work.

Good luck,

Tek

Dumping Syndrome occurs when undigested sugars and fats are 'dumped' into the intestines. When this occurs we experience palpations, sweats, cramps, feeling full, gas, gastric distress, and diarrhea. I apologize to any other resulting symptoms if I failed to mention, it is a mere oversight with nothing personal and no intention to offend.

Non-Ops: ANYONE can get dumping syndrome. Anyone with a working pyloric valve is generally unlikely to get dumping syndrome because it is the pyloric valves' job as gatekeeper from the stomach to the intestines to keep undigested food digesting in the stomach. My non-op wife got it once. She was not happy.

Bypass (RNY): 20-50% (Mayo says 85%) of Bypass (RNY) patients experience dumping because they do not have a functioning pyloric valve between their stomach (now a pouch) and their intestines. In fact, it's called Gastric Bypass because the pyloric valve and a bit of the small intestines are bypassed. No gatekeeper means food and drink go pretty much directly to the intestines, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Good news is some sources say after 2 years only 15% of patients still get dumping syndrome. I'm lucky, I guess.

Lap Band: Lap Band folks don't have much of a chance for dumping because lurking below the band there is a normal stomach and all the associated plumbing.

Sleeve: Team sleeve have a sleeve which is remarkably similar to the 'pouch' of RNY folks. Unlike the RNY folks at the bottom of the sleeve is a working pyloric valve. However, if one over eats or over drinks, and follows up by over drinking the food can be pushed through. However the sleeve also reduces volume. So, it's more than possible that dumping in sleeve patients may be greater than with non-ops, however sources simply don't want to put a number on it.

None of the statistics really matter. You either dump or don't dump. Once you have your answer for you, statistics don't matter. As in most matters we need to work with the hand we are dealt, which most of us do with beauty and grace, or like me, handsome and clumsy.

Good Luck,

Tek
