    Is dumping when you throw up after eating? I’m still new to the terminology.. That’s happened a few times to me too. Mostly when forcing down carbs or too much food. I eat much slower now and make more conscious choices. Exchanging bread for rice crackers and staying away from chalky vegetables, pastas and rice.
  3. I am 6 weeks out. I hope you don't ever have dumping. It's like a huge, horrible hangover without even being able to enjoy the drink! It's happened twice so far. Once 3 weeks ago but this time was much worse. Does it get easier to bring in more calories? I am struggling with energy because I can't get in enough calories to have any energy. It's taken me a few hours to put my groceries away because of it. Thankfully, Walmart has pickup and they can do my shopping for 8 for me! Other than that, my weekend is going by fast! I hope yours is good as well!

    Sorry you ended up dumping on Thanksgiving. It's a rough balance sometimes. How far out are you from surgery? I'm about 6 1/2 mos post op and honestly I don't think I've ever had dumping. I do know I've eaten too fast and have failed to chew well enough a few times and lost it from that. I'm doing better on that front.
    Thanks for your message - hope you are enjoying the weekend.
