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.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
