Welcome to the Healing Well
Sorry to hear you're having problems.
I had my surgery in February 2009. I did have some dumping syndrome during my recovery, and it lasted past the year mark. Sometime into the second year it stopped. If I really irritate my wrap, I can get a very mild occasional dumping episode...maybe as many as two a year. I've never had bowel incontinence, though.
I wonder if your wrap might be too tight. I have no trouble drinking beer. I actually could burp a little right after my surgery, and still do. Once wrapped, my stomach determines whether and when I burp. It can make some pretty big burps when wants to. If I don't burp, then things go through my system and out the other way.
I don't get pain at the wrap site unless I eat a LOT really irritating foods. It never lasts more than a day or so, though. I can eat what I want, and only have trouble when I get bloated, when isn't very often.
Have you gotten a second opinion regarding your wrap? Perhaps with some testing, someone can figure out why you're having such trouble. What you're experience isn't typical, and seems to be indicative of some sort of problem.
Wish I had some answers for you!
Hang in there!Best wishes,
