Is it just me? but I have what I relate to having swallowed a pill and it doesn't go down all the way. And it feels like its stuck in my throat. It's really irritating me and It's uncomfortable. Anyone else have this happen? Thx

Sorry that happen to you. I have not had this problem because I take chewables or use a pill crusher. Maybe others can provide a solution.

How far out are you? I'm 3 weeks out and my surgeon said I shouldnt be taking any pills at all...just chewables, sublinguals, and capsules. He said pills can get stuck. I have some smaller pills (birth control, etc) that are fine though.

That sounds a lot like reflux. Are you on any reflux meds?

I don't think I was clear (sorry)' date=' its not really a pill stuck, that's just what it feels like, I only take chewables and sublingual. I'm 4 weeks post op tomorrow.[/quote']

Ohhh. Is it when you swallow Fluid and food? I felt that with Fluid for awhile when my gulps were too big. Like I was swallowing air bubbles.

I get a lot of hiccuping whenever I swallow something and a feeling of something stuck like you said the stuck tablet I'm on reflux tablets and I'm 14 days post op still hurts when I hiccup! Wish it would go away

My doc said it was acid reflux as well as throat and stomach irritation. He prescribed prilosec and a liquid to take 4 times a day for swelling. Ive been on the meds for over a week of has been awesome! What a relief!

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
