Hi Whitey.

I would bet my L K Bennett shoes on the fact that what you experinced is dumping!

I’m menopausal too and have hot flushes, headaches, lightheadedness and palpitaions but dumping also comes (for me) with a side order of sleepiness, shaking and the feel/need to be sick. It sometimes even causes the runs too.

Weetabix and milk is quite a lot of carbs first thing in the morning, so maybe try something with protein instead? Maybe some scrambled or poached egg? I can’t eat carbs in the morning still but am fine by lunchtime and throughout the day. I think it’s just a bit too much for our bypasses to deal with first thing for some people. We are all so different and we change throughout our journey. What makes you dump now might not be the case in 3 months. Very much trial and a fair bit of error in the intial stages.

Hope this helps.
