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!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
