Ive seen some posts about dumping and am wondering if this happens to everyone that has weight loss surgery and does it happen no matter what surgery you have?

It happens with RNY and happens to about 30% of RNY patients. It has to do with sugar rushing into the intestines too quickly. You sweat, your heart races, you get dizzy, and sometimes it is followed by watery diarrheic. It usually lasts about 15 minutes.

Real life begins where your comfort zone ends
