I'm having problems with slime. Unlike what most people post about slime, it doesn't seem to happen to me because food is stuck. It always happens after the first few small well-chewed bites of food. It's like my little pouch has filled up with saliva since my last meal, and then when a bit of food goes into the pouch, it pushes all that sitting slime up into my throat and I have to throw it up. When I throw up, the food doesn't come up, only the slime, and then I can usually eat my meal after. I don't know why this happens, because I'm eating slow, chewing well, and it happens after only the first bite or two, so it's not that I'm full. If I eat something before a meal that can "soak up" the slime/saliva sitting in my otherwise empty pouch, that seems to work. But, the foods I've found that can "soak up" the slime is bad stuff like chips! Plus, I can't always eat something 15 minutes before a meal, especially if at a restaurant. Help!

Do you have allergies or post nasal drip? You may need meds .Otherwise you could try drinking a cup of warm tea or broth before you eat to help clear the built up mucus.

Slime can not sit in your pouch waiting it has a hole in it. You may have post nasal drip and not know it. Take some allergy medication and see if that works.

My band surgeon suggests liquid Benadry if you have problems with mucous.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
