What is Dumping Syndrome?

Dumping syndrome is a complication of gastric bypass surgery. Dumping is caused by food moving too quickly through the intestines due to the intestine being shortened during surgery.

Symptoms of dumping syndrome include :

  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating
  • Bloating of the stomach

Usually the symptoms of dumping can be relieved by lying down. If symptoms persist patients should seek medical advice.

Dumping syndrome does not occur in all patients and by following the correct post-surgery diet and following surgeons guidelines it is possible to avoid dumping.
