My mom has suffered from Achalasia since age 18. She is now 59 and this past year her colon began shutting down and she has severe episodes of dumping syndrome. I'm taking over as her caregiver next month. Does anyone else suffer from dumping syndrome and if you do are there any suggestions you've found to help. The dumping syndrome has gotten increasingly worse since her esophagus was removed, her vagus nerve was cut, and her stomach was reshaped to connect to her throat 10 years ago at Virginia Mason in Seattle WA.

Hey, I'm a member of this awesome achalasia forum. You should check it out...search the boards and even post this question there. I don't know anything about dumping syndrome, but I know I've seen it talked about by other forum members. The site is:

Hope this is of assistance!
