3.5 weeks post op - first dumping experience



Recommended Posts

Happy Sunday Everyone! Just wanted to get some advice and see if anyone has had a similar experience. I dumped tonight for the first time and man oh man was it unpleasant. Pretty much felt like my body evacuated all stored or working to pass BM’s. It was a wild experience. My stomach hurt suddenly so I went to the bathroom. Then my mouth started watering like I was about to vomit (thankfully that passed) I was wearing my apple watch and my heart rate spiked from 58 resting to 95bpm. I started shaking uncontrollably. such a strange experience. It has since passed but i’m worried it will happen again. 3 hours prior I had eaten a 1/3 of a banana. 1 hour prior I had high Protein almond crackers with hummus. all chewed very well and without a drink. Has anyone had a similar experience with these foods? I don’t think it was the banana but any insight is appreciated. Good news is I feel cleaned out... lol. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their sunday!

The EXACT same thing happened to me after having a half banana in my smoothie- the surgeon said it would be okay to try. Since then, I have really watched my sugar intake. I do not want to go through that again......

Yikes, good to know... I’ve been contemplating trying a banana (I really want to try banana “ice cream”), but hesitated because of the sugar content. I don’t want to take any chances, so maybe I’ll keep avoiding bananas.

I dumped a couple weeks post RNY revision with a Protein Shake. I’ve also dumped on eggs. I don’t have any experience with bananas because I developed an allergy a few years ago but I do miss them.

I really wanted to have the bypass and I was upset that it was contraindicated for me (due to unrelated medical issues). But I must say, dumping sounds awful so maybe it worked out for the best!

Dumping is no fun. Which is why I'm glad I dump.

Do you think the folks above that dumped on sugar (or fat) want to repeat the event? What better negative reinforcement for eating wrong things could you ask for?

Yep, dumping helped me get where I am today.

I dumped on eggs...both in Soup (egg drop) and scrambled. I have since had a hard boiled egg, but only while I'm home!

I am two weeks out from surgery. I dumped for the first time Sunday (Nov 1) after my morning medication and some swigs of sugar free Powerade. It was god awful. I thought I was dying.

I had an episode of SVT (of which I have a history that started long before surgery) with heart rate in the 160s, then my bowels got super loose all of a sudden. I got lightheaded and dizzy and I thought I was going to pass out. I broke out into a cold, clammy sweat. Then I dry heaved for a few minutes.

The dry heaving made it click for me that it was dumping. I was surprised to have that happen on a basically empty stomach. I hadn't had any issues before, but I guess I just took my pills too fast and it freaked my body out. I have been more careful with how fast I take my pills since and I haven't had that issue... but it was scary. I really did not expect it.
