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.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
