But at least you can see your generals! LMAO.

I have been fortunate not to have had any dumping episodes yet, and I.

Hope.

To keep it that way. Although, I treat everything as if I will, just in case. I did drink a glass of wine with no problem though...

I took one bite of a mozzarella cheese stick and hit the bathroom. also I tried a bite of homemade bread, same thing. oh well, guess I'll learn.....

Comment #3

I don't think I've dumped yet. I've been sick a couple times from chicken. Once I knew I ate to fast..

Everyone says shaky, sweating, pains, etc...........the times I was sick was just knowing I was gonna, but no other effects?..

Comment #4

I have been so fearful about dumping that I haven't even tempted "fate" with sugar products. However, the other day someone offered me a Ritz cracker and I didn't give it a second thought and ate it. About five minutes later I was vomiting profusely for a good thirty minutes. Who knew, right?..

Comment #5

Oh Andy - sounds horrible - you poor guy!!.

I have dumped on anything and everything at one point it seems. Usually, chicken and salad is a staple for me, but every now and then the same thing will make me sick as a dog..

I have never actually vomitted, but boy do I feel horrible with nausea, sweats, chills...good thing is that it only seems to last a couple of hours - but what a miserable couple of hours it is..

I gotta ask though - did it taste good at least???.

Glad you are back - missed you lots..

Xoxo.

Vomiting seems to be a regular thing with me. I am 5 weeks post op and trying foods, well trying to keep them down. Oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, and soda have done it for me so far. I get a horrible pain in my chest, nausea, clammy, and then vomiting. Just part of getting use to this new body I guess...

I have a hard time with chicken.. for awhile I wa throwing up every evening meal I ate but it seems to be getting much better. I never know what is going to make me sick..as for dumping that has only happened to me twice and if it never happens again I will be thankful. The last time it happened to me I had eaten tuna and oh my goodness I had pain like I was going to die for 4 hours and the throwing up was the worst I have ever done I think ....OH wait thats not true back in the day I got drunk on wine and lets just say it wasn't pretty...LOL.

I don't dump often...and when I have it's been mild....but once a couple months ago I was eating chili and just couldn't resist having a small dinner roll .....that was enough to set me off...a few bites of that and my head was spinning and I could have went under my desk for a.

Nap.

I knew it was the bun right away and wont' make that mistake twice..

I haven't had bread in a year...why the hell did I even try it..i'll never know....

Comment #9

Mine came from a protein shake. I had been taking this shake for about two weeks with no problems, but then one day it just started. Soon as I stopped the shakes, it stopped, have no idea why this happened...

I've thrown up...ham, pork, beef, eggs, chicken....they tasted good going down, but not soo good coming back up, usually takes me about 15-30 mins to get all the remnants up and out of me, and then feel better. I hate vomiting, it takes sooo much energy out of you. I'm still.

Learning.

, and prolly will be for a while...

Comment #12

My gummy bear vitamins. lol It took me a while to figure it out but thanks to my DS friends here on the forum I switched to regular vitamins and no more dumping in the evenings...

Comment #13

I have not yet had dumping, I have however had much trouble eating chicken, 1 meal I'm fine the next it sits like a rock untill I will myself to get it out, as soon as it is out I am fine within seconds. I am ok with oatmeal, but it did make me a little nauseated I never thought about the amount of carbs in it... probably why that happened but I didnt get full dumping symptoms...

Comment #14

Thinking that I could eat something "smooth" while on.

Vacation.

???? Grits - which had to be the dumbest thing that did the whole week...

Comment #15

I've had no dumping. I don't eat any sweets, breads and very limited pasta. I had the drumstick of a cornish game hen last night and that went down real well. I do have a hard time with salads but I think it's because it's hard to get it chewed up good enough...

Comment #16

I dont know if I am lucky or not but I can eat suger and carbs with no problems. I wish I would get sick so I would not be temted......

Comment #17

Tell me like I'm a two year old but it sounds like some of you guys are comparing puking to dumping and I really thought that dumping was specificly cause by sugar, whether it is actual sugar or simple carbs??.

Went I eat anything that just doesn't sut well in my pouch, I'll blow that out in a heart beat. But I don't consider that dumping. Isn't dumping when your body gets all shakey and sweaty?.

Comment #18

Gastric dumping syndrome, or rapid gastric emptying is a condition where ingested foods bypass the stomach too rapidly and enter the small intestine largely undigested. It happens when the upper end of the small intestine, the duodenum, expands too quickly due to the presence of hyperosmolar (substances with increased osmolarity) Medifast food from the stomach. "Early" dumping begins concurrently or immediately succeeding a meal. Symptoms of early dumping include nausea, vomiting, bloating, cramping, diarrhea, dizziness and fatigue. "Late" dumping happens 1 to 3 hours after eating. Symptoms of late dumping include weakness, sweating, and dizziness.

The syndrome is most often associated with gastric.

..

It is speculated that "early" dumping is associated with difficulty digesting fats while "late" dumping is associated with carbohydrates.[citation needed].

Rapid loading of the small intestine with hypertonic stomach contents can lead to rapid entry of water into the intestinal lumen. Osmotic diarrhea, distension of the small bowel (leading to crampy abdominal pain), and hypovolemia can result..

In addition, people with this syndrome often suffer from low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, because the rapid "dumping" of Medifast food triggers the pancreas to release excessive amounts of insulin into the bloodstream. This type of hypoglycemia is referred to as "alimentary hypoglycemia"...

Comment #19

I have only dumpted once and I thought I was going to die. I had 3 very small bites of chicken that was too dry. I was at work and within 20 minutes I was actually sitting on the floor in the washrooms cubicle. I was sick 8 times (I had only had maybe 1/2 an ounce of chicken) my husband had to come and pick me up from work, got home went straight to bed, and prayed that this never, ever, ever happens to me again. I am only 4 months out today but I.

Hope.

This doesn't happen to me ever again (probably wishful thinking)...
