1 day post op... is this normal?



Recommended Posts

I had surgery yesterday and after a sucessful dye test... I was given the go ahead to start with some Clear liquids.

However, I'm having trouble swallowing anyhing without it being uncomfortable... even Water. Also, there are several weird groany sounds escaping from my throat with every sip I take of Water or broth. Was it like that anyone else? Will it get better?

Yes, completely normal. It seemed like a long time before I could swallow comfortably. As for the gurgly sounds, that is normal as well. Your tummy is angry at you right now and is letting you know!smile.gif You have a lot of swelling and it will continue to make that sound for a while. As a matter of fact, there are some veterans here who still hear it now and again.

Yes, this is normal. I just had surgery on 7,18 and am having the same thing. My doctor prescribed me meds for esophagal spasms and it has really been halping. With time, I see it going away for good. Be patient, and dont get frustrated because I did.

As the others said, this is normal. Try different temperatures of liquid - that may help. Personally, ice cold plain Water is what worked best for me - but I'm unusual in that. Many report that warm or room temperature is better for them.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
