A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.

From your history, it points towards two probable diagnosis:
1) Dumping Syndrome
2) Roux Stasis Syndrome- It is the occurrence of gastric atony after subtotal or partial gastrectomy if Roux-en y gastric bypass or gastrojejunostomy is done.
Patients present with a fullness, vomiting, loss of appetite and weight, and early satiety.

Both these conditions need CECT abdomen and you need to consult a surgical gastroenterologist for further management. As of now, you can take Syrup. Cremaffin or Duphalac 15-20 ml once at bedtime, if you have difficulties with your motion.

Hope this was helpful,
