Bad habit of swallowing gum!



Recommended Posts

So I was having a couple cups of coffee with cream (as a treat) and it was so hot when I was chewing gum it kinda melted and I swallowed it!

Anyone ever done this? I’m only second week in to my operation. (March 11th was my date)

I hear that swallowing gum and the time it takes to digest is an old wives tale but what can I do? Should I be worried?

By the way I’m not 100% sure now if I did or not because I did spit out my gum before but if anyone has done this please comment!

I can’t imagine drinking coffee and chewing gum at the same time!

No. I honestly haven't swallowed gum accidentally or intentionally since about first grade...

Nope, I've never swallowed gum. Can't imagine it'll hurt you though.

*Maybe* give up gum for a bit... You just had surgery less than 2 weeks ago. Ask your team for sure.

💜 Congratulations 💜

But...Why is coffee with cream a (parenthetical) treat ?

Oh well

I just saw an episode about this on a science show that confirms it is a old wives tale or myth. But I do believe it said it takes longer but not 7 years 🤷🏻‍♀️
