Of course you haven’t been sent to Coventry or anywhere else for that matter! As you say one bag of crisps is ok-ish from time to time if you do not react to the fat in them (like I do), it wasn’t very clear in your post though! But dumping rarely causes lower bowels probs in my experience, light headedness, hot flushes etc. However, we also react to fats which can cause burning in the pouch, and the less pleasant lower bowel stuff. As you had it pre-op, hopefully it is just a question of time before it settles, I still have probs from where I had my band, and I guess I always will.

We are all here to help and support, sometimes we make comments to try to be constructive, not critical…
