Had a donut today, I caved on a craving, now I’m hating life. How long does dumping syndrome last?

I'm not a dumper, but from what i understand, it can go on for several hours...

Planning on another donut anytime soon?

Dumping can last 3-4 hours, depending on how far you went. When the diarrhea works it's way through you are prety much done. Best to just give in and sleep it off.

Dumping is great, it teaches you in no uncertain terms that you don't want to eat whatever you ate ever again. Yet... soon enough you will try. You will eventually learn your limits.

I'm a big fan of dumping. It has kept me on the almost straight and moderately narrow even all these years later.

Good luck,

Tek

I had "delayed dumping syndrome" after eating Culver's batter fried cod (which was delicious). 24 hours later I had severe abdominal pain that kept me up all night and in discomfort for several days. I never suspected dumping syndrome. I feared a bowel torsion and called the surgeon's office after the first night and went in the following day. I did have bowel movements so I was reassured that it was not torsion but rather delayed dumping syndrome. It happened again 2 weeks later when I ate smoked whitefish. Excessive fat is what triggered the attacks, and I learned a convincing lesson about avoiding fried foods and fats. I don't eat things with sugar, so have never had that kind of dumping syndrome.

Yes, dumping is a harsh teacher, but you won’t forget the lessons. Especially when you’re curled up in the fetal position in intense pain. All you can do is lie down and wait for it to run it’s course. Follow that up by not eating fried or fatty foods; sugary or “rich” things (heavy cream, whole milk, etc.). 15 years later, I still avoid those things.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
