      :( Im sorry hon. If its too dry it will. Im not going to lie. I drink a little water with food to make sure its not lumping in my chest.I figure after months of vomiting everyday that little bit that might get pushed through with my water will be okay. If i can chew it and make it mooshy enough in my mouth its going to be an unpleasant feeling like an elephant on my chest.

      I have now discovered after months of vomiting that I can eat only bites the size of my thumb nail if not smaller and have to chew until it is mush and then wait two minutes to eat another bite. With that i can eat stuff. It may burn if spicy but it is staying down and not lumping in my chest.

  12. It's amazing how my emotions are all over the place...yesterday I was pretty positive and now I'm getting anxious again...I know I can do this but I'm a bit overwhelmed at all the lifestyle changes ahead..gotta keep my eyes on the prize!

      I think that's completely normal. I went through it for weeks until last week when I hit the one week pre op. I had to have a little talk with myself because I was stressing myself out so bad. This week has been great except running around making sure everything is taken care of. :) we are going to do great. :)
