Hello everyone, from what i have seen so far this is a great forum with awesome people offering great advice

I had gastric by-pass at the end of April 2019 and have been through the liquid, pureed, and Soft food diets (Still on Softwood until i see my surgeon again), i have had an issue twice so far with food getting stuck, once was with steamed fish and another time with Risotto.

I chewed my food really well but it still happened those two times and i find it really tender to swallow anything for a few days after it, I know the opening if narrow at the moment but is this because i am am healing or is this the way it is going to be for every?

I had that with Beans but suffered through. I read on here that you can mix 1/4 teaspoon of meat tenderizer with a tiny bit of Water and sip that. I guess it’s supposed to help break down the meat. I’ve never tried it.

Oh what a miserable sensation, I have had that with foods I know have been moisturized enough by sal8's and chewing. Makes you wonder if this is something structural, whether you are tending up your throat yourself or whether💦you are just expecting too much that your foodstuffs slip into your still- New pouch?

I had my surgery on 4/29 and have been having the same issue. I saw my surgeon this past week and he said it’s normal for your body to form scar tissue that narrows your passages, but that it should resolve itself soon. He told me to go back on full liquids and purées for a couple more weeks.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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!!  😈
