Pain in chest after swallowing


4 posts in this topic

good morning..just a question for all the banders out there. I either swallowed something too fast or something too big because now I can feel discomfort . it does not hurt when swallow ...it hurts as the food goes further down. I can also feel it when I stretch and open my arms wide. I feel like something is irritated and I can feel it when I take a deep breath. Any advice?

It's hard to tell from the information you gave? Can you drink a glass of Water? Just wondering if you are stuck?

I'm a newbie, but last night I ate a small bite of chicken, but didn't chew it enough and I had some pain in my chest for a little bit. Same as you described; however, after a little bit it went away and sips of Water helped a little. I took sips to see if I was stuck. It was just a reminder to chew...chew...chew! It's part of learning to eat with your band. Hope you feel better soon!

I've had days where I feel a lump or a swollen feeling in my stoma. If it happens in the morning it will continue the entire day. I haven't had any PB episodes so I think it's from taking too big of a bite and irritating my stoma. I did try liquid ibuprofen once and I think it helped a bit with the swelling.
