Dumping syndrome...ever had it? What foods caused it?

I had it twice...once I drank three sips of strawberry juice and later some fruit yogurt...and today i had a piece of french toast with cheese...must have eaten it too fast or something...I don't know why.

dumping is the result of too many carbs or too much fat taken in at one time. The rule of thumb [for gastric bypass] is to not take in more than 15 grams of carbs at one time. dumping is the reason i avoid fruit yogurt - there's a lot of carb grams in there with relatively little protein.

sometimes when things get stuck, it can feel like dumping, but as my surgeon told me, that's a 'pouch filling issue' [like eating too quickly, taking bites that are too big, or eating too much].
