Sorry ladies this is horrible. If you have a chance of dying can they revise the surgery?

They can but revisions are risky and my surgeon said he's never done one

Hey everyone' date=' im 13 weeks post op. I always get that feeling something is stuck. I think its only because I try to either eat to fast or drink to fast. It goes away after about 15 minutes. But this crap is so not the business. So there for I find myself eating alot of popsicles. sugar free of course. I do eat things a little better now. You just have to know your limits. Im still new to this and learning everyday. I do know that I take a bite of something ,eat it slow ,walk away and come back to it when I know the food has gone down. I know it sucks but it seems to work for me.[/quote']

If only it were that simple for me...

My heart goes out to the ones that are having issues with food getting stuck or sitting above the stomach. I am almost two week post op and i pray nothing like this happens to me but reading the stories remind me to eat and drink slow as to not cause me pain and suffering.

My 4th one dismayed me to 13.5mm. I pray we both feel "normal" again soon

Wow, four years ago I was told 11mm was the max they could do. Maybe that's why I stick?

You are in my prayers

I agree with Sweet. I'm only 25 days post op and EVERYTME I eat it feels like something is in my throat a and yea although it doesn't hurt...its so uncomfortable and with me it last for hours on end. I usually just try to go to sleep and pray its gone when I wake up. My doctors told me to just try to do liquids like broth n sugar free Jello for now. I even had my throat xrayed to be certain nothing was lodged in there (it wasn't) I wonder will this ever go away. It makes me so miserable and uncomfortable

Thanks

Omg I an glad I found this thread. I am one week out and about 80% of the time I swallow anything it feels like it gets stuck. Doc said today it could be a stricture but they're going to give it a few weeks. It's so uncomfortable and I am really dehydrated because I don't want to eat or drink because of it!

It’s been five months since I had my surgery. I still get the feeling of something bring stuck in my throat!! I’ve about decided it’s probably me eating too fast, not chewing my foods enough and/or just drinking too fast!!
Its not a good feeling and hopefully, it will ease up. Good luck to everyone.
Oh, my GI Dr recommended me walking some after each meal. This does seem to help! If I just sit after I eat then it makes it worse!!

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
