What woukd cause a severe dumping situation??
Over the past seven years I have had two or three issues with the "dumping"syndrome..however 3 months ago one started and it was violent and lasted 6 hrs..ie:my bowels emptied and I foamed(gagged) that entire time. It was frightening and I felt awful for two months. Although things are finally returning to normal, there are still minor issues ie:TONS of gas that has to be expelled due to the pain it causes...anyone in the koknw about the why and how and complications of this?? — merriemarym (posted on August 26, 2015)

Dumping generally can occur with the gastric bypass weight loss surgery. Dumping can last for quite a few hours but doesn't last for two months. The definition of dumping is: Dumping Syndrome: Whereby stomach contents move too rapidly through the small intestine. Symptoms include nausea, weakness, sweating, faintness, and, occasionally, diarrhea after eating, as well as the inability to eat sweets without becoming so weak and sweaty that the patient may have to lie down until the symptoms pass. I encourage you to call your bariatric surgeon. I've dumped and a dumping episode doesn't last for as long as you're describing.
