Anyone having weird metallic tasting burbs???? I have been having them all day, wonder if it's stomach acid or maybe the Staples.

Does anyone else get a tight feeling in their chest when swallowing food?
Yes, that's normal for post surgery. It can hurt a lot for a minute or two. It usually means you ate too much too fast. I am still learning so it happens a lot. Same happens if you drink to fast. I also get these pains randomly every once in a while. When that happens, it's a stomach spasm. It should calm down after a couple of weeks.

Had my first post-op check up with my surgeon today. Said everything looked great and I was doing great with my fluids and Protein. I am officially cleared to the next food phase! Very exciting considering I've been on clear liquids since 2 1/2 weeks prior to surgery! Tried cream of potato Soup tonight (only was able to eat about a 1/2 cup at best) and then ended the day with a sugar free/fat free chocolate pudding. It was glorious!

Sounds like your doing great. I am 4 days post-op (technically just started my fifth) and 4 ounce of cream of chicken Soup is enough to fill me too. I had pureed turkey with Tomato sauce for dinner, topped with rigotta and a little mozarella (around 3 tablespoons of food) and I had had enough. Full doesn'tit used too. Now I stop as soon as I get that sharp pain and pressure in my chest---which happens very fast!

Here was dinner served on small bread plate and eaten with a teaspoon:20181221_182711.jpeg

Hi Steve I’m not a Dr and could be wrong but sometimes a metallic taste in your mouth can be blood sometimes caused from dry mouth or dehydration if ur not getting enough Water

Or another answer, if you are like me, when I get anxious I tend to chew my lower👄 lip, had habit, know enough now to not do it consciously but sometimes do it in my sleep.👄

A metallic taste in the mouth could also be a sign that your body is in ketosis. Which isn't all beyond the realm of possibility, seeing as your sugars are drastically reduced and a lot of your culinary options starting out are sugar-free.

As a birthday treat, I have some Decaf coffee from Starbucks. I've added some Atkins shake plus some GENEPRO (I know some people don't like Genepro, but I spent money on it and I WILL finish the bag.) It's SO yummy. I have been struggling with nausea for the past few days, unfortunately.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
