  1. I went back to soups and yogurt and I feel better. Thank GOD! And thank all of you for the advice, I really appreciate it. I guess moving onto solids is going to take me a while. I guess my body starts feeling better and my wounds start healing, but I have to remember that I just had this big surgery only 5 weeks ago and my stomach is stapled shut. I have to remember that it's going to take time and patience
  2. Right, and my concern is that I ate that chicken finger 4 days ago. I shouldn't still be feeling like this should I? Today all I've had is soup and yogurt and I still feel like something is stuck in my stomach and it makes me nauseated.
  3. Hi there, I'm in week 5 and I'm not feeling great. I started my soft solids this past week and I've been sick since Sunday. Sunday I was stupid and I had one chicken finger. I chewed and chewed and chewed, but OH I was so sick. I thought I was going to vomit and I was sweaty all over. But it passed and I was okay about 30 minutes later. The next day I made myself some tofu and the same thing happened, just not as severe. And now it feels like something is stuck! I feel it all the time whether I'm eating or not. I don't want to eat anything at all because it feels so terrible now. I have gone back to Soup and yogurt. How do I get this unstuck?? Please help!

    Chest Pain! Food Stuck?

    I think this is what happened to me too. I'm in week 5 and I'm not feeling great. I started my soft solids this past week and I've been sick since Sunday. Sunday I was stupid and I had one chicken finger. Oh I was so sick. I thought I was going to vomit and I was sweaty all over. But it passed and I was fine about 30 minutes later. But the next day I made myself some tofu and the same thing happened, just not as severe. And now it feels like something is stuck! I feel it all the time whether I'm eating or not. I don't want to eat anything at all because it feels so terrible now. I have gone back to soup and yogurt. How do I get this unstuck??

    Almanza

    I had surgery with Almanza on 4/28 and he and his whole team are so wonderful. The recovery house was a perfect recovery place for me and I felt very comfortable being there. The nurses were so wonderful and attentive. They were there for me whenever I needed it. Always checking on me, bringing me ice pops, pain meds, anything! They work so hard in that recovery house and I am so appreciative of all of them for making my experience down there so good.

    Can You Drink To Much?

    I hope so. I'm worried that I won't get the restrictive feeling or I'll blow right past it and blow up my stomach and fail.
  10. Hi there, I am 5 days post op and I am having no troubles drinking at all. I just drank an entire can of chicken broth with no problems, then it hit me. Am I stretching my sleeve by drinking too much at once? I'm not talking big gulps or anything, just regular drinks. It didn't hurt at all. But I'm so scared of stretching my sleeve. I thought I read somewhere that I was only supposed to have 2 or 3 oz every 15 minutes. Is this true? Thanks for the help! Cynthia

    Can You Drink To Much?

    But what about stretching my pouch? I am 5 days post op and I can drink as much as I want. I just had a whole can of chicken broth without even thinking about it, and now I'm scared that I'm stretching my sleeve. Is it possible to stretch it with liquid?
  12. I'm doing the same, I'm 5 days post op. I'm worried about stretching my sleeve. Could drinking too much do this?

    Sipping

    I'm 5 days post op and I can drink normally. I can't take a big gulp or I'll get the discomfort but I'm not having any troubles drinking. I thought it was going to be a big deal and it's not. I'm afraid though that I might stretch my brand new sleeve. Is this possible? From drinking too much?
