Hi. You have answereda few of my questions in the past and I have found that your answers to me and others are always very well informed, thank you so muich for that.
I wonder if I could ask for your help again? I am just over 6 months post op, have lost 6st 2lbs and am very happy with that. However I think I may be suffering from dumping but I am not really sure. Often about 15 to 20 minutes after eating I start to feel really hot, bloated and nauseus for about an hour. I am never sick. However after about 2 -3 hours I feel hungry, I eat and then the cycle repeats itself. I eat the same food as I did before surgery but much less of it, round about 150g. Am I eating too much? Is this dumping? Please could you explain this for me. I really appreciate your help. Many thanks. Suzanne.

Thanks so much for your speedy answer. I can see now where Iam very probably going wrong. I do enjoy a glass of wine before my meal and then sip a little after eating. Ialso love Iced Cream and usually have one ice cream a day. I do eat a lot of protein, very rarely fried food but from time to time I do have oven chips, fried bacon and eggs. I will aim to eat more healthily and hope that works. Can you just tell me how I would feel if I overate. Thanks for all your help. No doubt I will have more questions in the future. Stay safe. Thanks again.
It is very important to immediately stop eating when you feel full, as you no longer have a large stomach that can stretch to take on extra food. Whenever I am foolish enough to continue to eat even though I feel full, I will inevitably feel sick and often will need to throw up.
How are you doing?
