I Think I Swallowed A Lemon Seed?

Recommended Posts

I put lemon in my water bottle and took a chug yesterday and I kinda thought I felt a seed. Now I feel like its stuck in the back of my throat?? Is that even possible or due to the band? It's not terribly bothersome so I thought I would just wait it out it would go thru. It's not like that "stuck" feeling. Any thoughts?

I would try drinking a lot of Water. This might help dislodge if indeed it is stuck. Also try some papya pills (chewables found in the Vitamin isle. About half way to restriction while out on a nature walk I swallowed a small piece of gum when I drank out of a water bottle (yes dumb @ss move!). I drank a lot more water and eventually the stuck feeling went away. I do still chew gum but I never ever try to drink water while it's in my mouth.

Lemon seed in throat will grow to what's called "lemon-mouth" condition shown in Figure 1a below.

Figure 1a

Left untreated within a week you will experience the phenomenom of full body & mind conversion into a pop girl-boy band group appropriately named Lemonade Mouth as shown below in Figure 2b. It's best you speak to your physician immediately.

Hahahahahaha oh I'm dying here.

      🎶🎵 It's the Final Countdown!! 🎵🎶
      It's finally here!! My last day with a "normal" digestive system. Tomorrow morning I go in at 10:15am to check in, go through all the pre-flight checks (IV, vitals, sign consents, talk to anesthesia and my surgeon, etc), then into the OR I go! 
      This process has taken what seems like forever. Way back in April of 2022, I saw a general surgeon to have a Nissen Fundoplication to deal with my (horrible!!) reflux and repair my hiatal hernia. Problem was....my weight made it so there would be a high risk of both failure after a couple years and potential complications. He then suggested I see a bariatric surgeon (which was the first time anyone had ever made that suggestion. 
      So off I went to see bariatrics. From the first appointment, Dr. Beekley was nothing but supportive. He never once belittled me over my weight, or made me feel like I was making excuses for my health. The entire team has been awesome. They keep up with me in myChart, letting me know what Pre-op clearances I needed, or if anything extra was needed from other providers (which, given all my health issues, there was always something extra that was needed lol). 
      But all that hoop jumping was worth it. Now I'm packing my bag and getting ready to have my life completely changed for the better. While I may be increasingly nervous the closer I get to that OR, I'm also excited beyond belief. I've been stuck in this messed up body for entirely too long, and I can't wait to start leaving it behind and meet the woman I know is inside.

      I weighed 199 pounds (90 kg) this morning! I felt accomplished and happy, and celebrated by going to the gym to lift some weights. Hoping everyone else out there is making progress, whether you are pre- or post-op 😊
      Today is 7 weeks and two days post-op for me. I've been through two stalls already, but I am sticking to the program. I want long-term success from all of the sacrifice and pain. You all know I mean!

I'm very excited/nervous, but extremely happy too.
