Feeling something stuck in my throat


15 posts in this topic

Hi guys, i'm having trouble with swallowing. Luckily, I'm still able to keep food down. It feels like something is stuck in my throat. It makes my throat tight and I feel it in my chest too. I've tried every thing I know to get whatever is in there out, but it won't budge. Anytime I try to vomit, it's foamy stuff that comes out. Is anyone else going through the same? It's affecting my sleep, going out, everything. It's making me miserable. Please let me know if you have any remedies. I'm desperate.

Where are you at in the process? Pre-op, post-op, how long? Sounds a little like dumping syndrome.

Did you swallow a pill without Water? Unfortunately they can catch and stick down and it takes a week to dissolve. I have a brother-in-law who took aspirin without Water and it caused an ulceration. I suggest you reach out to your doctor.

@@thebabeupproject Papaya Enzymes, you can find them at Walmart in the Vitamin section. If it is a piece of meat/protein that maybe you didn't properly chew then the enzymes will help the meat break down and digest. They are a lifesaver! I carry a bottle with me everywhere I go and keep a bottle home. Discovered them about 2 weeks ago when I was experiencing the same thing you are. It wasn't painful just uncomfortable

There are plenty of reports on here from users who experience the stuck feeling while eating certain foods. My guess is that whatever foods are not going down right now should be avoided for the time being. chicken and turkey (lean and somewhat dry meats) seem to be a common culprit, and I know I have experienced a stuck feeling from eating those before I had any surgery.

Maybe take a step back in your diet progression to smooth or mushy foods and see how you tolerate them.

Swallowing works better if you chew enough and moisture.Moist foods work better.After you think you chewed enough chew some more.Try softer foods again and see if that gets stuck.If it does talk to your Dr.
