Hi jennas,
Many people experience some dumping during the healing process. I did.  Fortunately, it was not constant, and didn't bother me much at all.  I'd know if I was getting a dumping episode if my stomach started gurgling loudly. I continued to get occasional dumping into the second year, and then one day I realized it wasn't happening any more!
 Here's a link to an anti-dumping diet.  If you find you're having dumping issues, follow this type of diet, and it will help:
Click on the link below the main title.  Let me know if you have trouble opening the link.
You'll notice that it's very important to stay away from sweets.
Take care,
