i had surgery 4 days ago and I experienced something today that sounded like what I have read about-dumping syndrome. I have been 100% compliant with the post-op diet, but this morning, I felt nauseated, I got really sweaty and I started feeling like I was going to throw up or have diahhrea (or both). I got to the bathroom as quickly as possible and started what I can only describe as something close to dry heaving. Nothing ever came up my esophagus, but I was having repeated violent stomach contractions. It was like the exact sensation of vomiting, without any vomit. I was able to pass gas for the first time. All I could do was to pray repeatedly for the Lord to help me. This lasted a while and then it settled back down. I got back to the couch and slept for a few hours and am better now, but just extra sore now in my abdominal area, as if it weren't already sore enough. As far as I cab tell, the only thing I did different today was I added 2 crushed medicines to my morning routine. I checked my temperature and it was normal. Has anybody experienced this without having eaten a lot of sugar or fat?
