My husband who had a trans hiatal oesophagectomy in July last year is having a difficult time with late dumping syndrome. It started just after Christmas and he was able to control it at the first signs of a hot sweat with two glucose tablets. However, over the past week this method is not working. Over a period of twelve hours he had repeated sessions of hot sweats, shaking, coldness and then falling into deep sleep. It was pretty scary and nothing seemed to reduce the attacks. He has a good diet with lots of slow release carbs, protein and veg and just the occasional sweet treat. When he first came home from hospital he had severe early dumping syndrome which confined him to the house but that has settled now so we just need some advice about late dumping. Have spoken with the specialist nurse and she is referring Russ is to the dietician. Any help hints and tips would be very welcome. Thanks Val
