Yesterday I experienced DUMPING - DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN.

I had nausea, pain, high heart rate, cold sweats, and i threw up (water since i am still in my full liquid phase)

I was wondering why i wasn't feeling well and it was because i had drank too much, too fast, too often! (supposed to be an one ounce every 10-15 MIN)

Which in my defense, in the beginning i could drink as much as i wanted. With the exception of a little soreness going down but i never had the 'full' sensation until this morning.

So i more than likely over did it.

Today i am so much better :)

I had this happen on my first day moving from liquids to purees--I ate about 2/3 of a scrambled egg and it hit my stomach like a rock. I felt full for hours afterward and couldn't eat anything, and then ended up fainting in my bathroom. I nearly gave my fiance a heart attack and I got to take a fun ride in an ambulance. 😐

@pintsizedmallrat Oh NO! Glad you're okay! For me it was kind of the same. I had the nausea, the cold sweats, the hot flashes and I was full all day, I didn't drink anything from 3PM until about 4AM this morning and slept it off . I felt like i needed to reset. Glad i did, because i feel so much better and i am able to take liquids better today.

That's what I ended up doing too--the next day it was Protein Shakes and brothy Soup ONLY. I've eaten scrambled eggs since then without issue, I just think it was too much too quickly.

I don't believe what you experienced was dumping. Dumping is usually caused by too much sugar and/or fat. It sounds like you ate too much, too fast.

Well the doctor at the emergency room AND my surgeon seemed to agree that was what happened. I trust their opinion.

I tend to agree with this. You’re not going to dump on Water. I’ve never dumped but had the foamies countless times. The sides are very similar to dumping but take a look at what you consumed to know the difference. Also, I wouldn’t put much faith in ER doctors when it comes to bariatric surgery. Take this as first hand experience from working in an ER for 10 plus years as a nurse and being a bariatric patient myself.

I understand that about ER doctors, but the decision and diagnosis was made with my surgeon, who was contacted and provided with my chart. I actually didnt say anything about it happening "on water"--if you read what I had actually said (I am not the OP; I am a commenter from downthread), I ate scrambled eggs on my first day OFF liquids moving to purees. So I did not experience dumping syndrome "on water", I experienced it "on" Scrambled Eggs one week post-surgery.

I was quoting Maisey and agreeing with what they stated, I didn’t realize you weren’t the original poster. Not sure if Maisey was speaking directly to you or the original poster.

FYI eggs are notorious for causing the foamies. I’ve seen countless people here say they cannot tolerate them early on. I’m 6 months post surgery and still can’t eat a single egg without having mild foamies.

FYI I still can’t eat eggs. Makes me nauseous I’m 3 years out.

Whoa. Was told about dumping. Never ever heard of foamies. Just googled it. Ew. Now I'm worried, because I've had scrambled eggs, and chicken. Definitely need to be more careful.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
