Post-dumping (days later) severe gas, pain after eating



Recommended Posts

Hi there. I had gastric bypass about 3 months ago, have had no complications and have lost about 54 pounds so far. All has been going swimmingly! EXCEPT, I had some whipped cream Sunday which led to diarrhea and then all day extreme gas pains after eating small Snacks. I switched to liquids on Monday, still experienced severe gas all day and today, Tuesday, had low carb, low fat, high Protein snacks and tolerated them well. UNTIL I just had sugar free pudding and a small bit of chicken ravioli (3-5 bites) and the gas pain started up again. Ugh! Does anyone know what I should be doing?! Is this normal to have gas pains like this several days after dumping?

Not several days but try a ant acid - I would also call the Doc!

I''ve never had dumping syndrome and don't really know how long it lasts but I wouldn't think it would last this long. Call your doctor's office. Take some tums. I'm guessing you never want to "dump" again.😀

I’ve had dumping syndrome a few times. Usually the day it happens I’m exhausted after and then the following couple days my appetite slowly comes back and I’m extremely gassy for those following days. Gas-x helps a bunch in those times.
Most of my dumping has been Protein Shake related. Some just really don’t sit well with my new stomach.
Hope you find relief soon.

not sure if this is actually dumping. Even if it is, it doesn't seem it should be going on this long. I'd call your clinic and let them know what's going on.

I am experiencing the same thing and am just 10 days behind you as far as surgery date. I had really bad dumping on Thanksgiving (I had a tablespoon of whipped cream against my better judgement) and things have not been "right" since then. My clinic said to keep watching things and go back to purees for a few days to see if that helps. So far... eh. I have also had zero appetite since the dumping, so I'm mostly just focusing on getting my Protein in.
