Scared of Dumping syndrome

  1. cincigurl
    I am new to the forum and I have read a lot of valuable information. However, I haven't come across anything about dumping syndrome. I am scheduled to have surgery August of this year so I am doung everything to prepare myself. ..changing eating habits, exercise routine/schedule, taking vitamins drinking more water, etc. I have read online that dumping is going to happen in the weeks following surgery, for obvious reasons. This makes me nervous especially not knowing how my body is going to react/change after surgery.

    I am curious for anyone who has experienced dumping, what has worked for you so that it doesnt hsppen again or less frequently. Any info would be great

    Dumping is not common with sleeve, just bypass. Wic is why it is seldom discussed

    Dumping does happen with some people but for many it seems constipation is more of an issue. I remember worrying about it because some people I know have had dumping with their sleeve. They all made it to the toilet just fine though.

    Maybe someone who does experience it will have more information for you. Right now you are in worry mode which is easy to do. This website can be a great tool and provide a lot of relief to worries and can provide a lot of support. Keep asking questions and educating yourself! Good luck!!

    I've read if you have dumping to either wear something like depends until your body adjusts. just remember...if it feels like gas...it probably isn't. =)
