Ok, it happens to most of us at one point or another. You've eaten the wrong thing too early, sudden aversion to certain foods, drinking to soon after meal, eaten 1 bite past full, etc. etc.

Now you're uncomfortable, even miserable, producing slime like a Hag Fish.

What have you found that helps you through this? Any remedies? Reliefs? Anything you found that helps?

Please don't mention keeping a cup handy because the mere thought of that sends me gagging loosing everything else.

Could you explain what sliming is and is it just a feeling or does it produce anything?

Ok, but its gross.

To me its tasteless. Alot of people say its acid but when I get acid its totally different.

Personally, I produce a thick clear gel that reminds me of a jelly fish in the sand. When I start I produce quite a bit. I think its my body trying to add extra saliva to wash the offending substance out but since I'm too full or whatever it can't go down, it comes up.

I had sliming in the hospital like CRAZY. For me it was tasteless slimy like foam. It's truly disgusting! I still get it now and again after a meal but not nearly like in the hospital.

I had this really bad. Unfortunately the only thing that helped we was slowing down when I was eating. That was I realize I'm full before it's too late.

If I get the feeling that I'm over full and I'm gonna produce the foam sometimes a sip or two of Water will help some of the good slide on through your stomach. However this does NOT work for me if my tummy is full of dense Protein. Since that can't "slide" through it makes it so much worse!

I am 4 weeks post op and have never gotten the slimies. Is that weird? Im eating a huge variety of foods but still sticking to soft stuff. If I eat too much it just feels stuck. Is slimies a step past the stuck feeling or do some people not experience it?

For me its right after stuck. i don't try to continue eating but probably hadnt chewed well enough or was too dense and body was doing what it could to get it unstuck.

Nothing has helped me. It's worse with chicken than any other Protein. I try to stop before I get to that point, but if I'm eating too fast, I don't know until it's too late.

I would say chicken is also the worst Protein on causing slimes, probably because it is so dense. I used to get slimes all the time up to about 2 weeks ago ( currently about 10 weeks post op), but not so much any more. It is not really as bad as some of the previous posters have stated. It is basically extra saliva in your mouth. I think it is not happening any more because i am finally receiving the proper signals that i am done eating, even though still only eating 2-3 oz per serving. Good luck.

I get the slimes and the foams. it is gross and I have not found a remedy. I am certain it is when something I have eaten has triggered a reaction so the body starts producing liquid to wash it through the stomach easier. But as there is no room in the stomach it has to come up.

I note the signs now, usually I start to cough, and then remove myself to the bathroom for the inevitable slime. I try tokeepitdown but sometimes it is just too much and I spit it up.

Gross,, yes. But not as gross as me when I was morbidly obese. Worth every slime to be slim :-)

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
