The foamies generally don't result in the type of reaction that you had. That reaction is more common with what is known as 'dumping' syndrome and is normally brought about by eating something that either is too high in fat and/or carbs and occurs as the food moves from your pouch into your newly plumbed digestive tract. Dumping syndrome normally lasts about 30 minutes or so with the symptoms you described, then they ebb and you feel like you've been through the wringer. Foamies occur when we ingest something too big for our pouch or too much volume and it gets stuck, causing the saliva to back up thereby providing the 'foamie' reaction. Sometimes you will get quite of bit of pressure or even pain as long as the food remains stuck, but it will be alleviated as the food moves through the pouch and stoma and on into the digestive tract.
If I were you, I'd give my surgeon's office a call and let them know what happened and get their take on it.
I don't know if it helps, but in large part, most people don't have that passing out feeling often and it happens less and less often as your new digestive tract matures over the next year or two. I think you will find it will be much better in a few weeks, months, then years...
