I too suffered from dumping syndrome. I had also had my gall bladder removed. I found quite by accident that coconut oil alleviated my dumping syndrome. I have shared this with others who have also had their gall bladder removed and it is always the same result... Sweet relief! I take four capsules each morning.
How much do you take of the coconut oil? Thank you, Eva
Ah, yes! The very first meal I had following removal of my gallbladder resulted in a 'gut rush' to the bathroom and this phenomenon has been a regular part of life since. Then my daughter, the same. Followed by my son. Cholecystectomy was very definitely the trigger for all of us; however, we also all find that 'eating out' contributes to the problem. I rarely have the intense urgency when eating at home and neither do they. A meal with a higher fat content will do it, very spicy food does it (which is not a problem for me since I do not enjoy or cook very spicy food). A large meal will do it, even if fat and spice are not a major contributor. I will certainly try the coconut oil.
DUMPING SYNDROME AFTER GALL BLADDER SURGERY
My last two jobs have had supervisors at least 20 yrs younger than myself that have also had their gall bladders removed, as has my newest daughter in law. All three have Dumping Syndrome. I think I would have put off my surgery maybe indefinitely if I had been told about it.
The only thing that I can think of that could have made that much difference is the fact that I take good probiotics. By good, unfortunately, I mean more expensive. I buy sometimes at a local chain store and sometimes online. If I am permitted to mention brands, I was taking a great probiotic when I got e coli, its expensive but good and they had it on sale for half price at that time where I order online. At my age I think that may have been the reason I got over it w/only 4 days of IV antibiotics in the hospital, the elderly and children are usually the 3 out of 10 that don't live over e coli. I have candida so I take more than suggested on the container. Newbies should start with 1 cap a day, taken at night. Acidophilis can make you have some gas at first as it digests some "stuff" that may have been hanging around in your colon fo a while. ACV basically does the same thing if you don't have a candida problem.
Acidophilis also gets rid of smelly gas problems, overnight, and should be passed out to employees at work, by law! Lol I hope this information will help others at this site. I have come to depend so much on this site for mine and family's ailments. I would be happy to answer questions addressed to my email at ladylauranwaco[at]grandenet.net.
