I am almost 3 weeks out since having surgery. I do not have acid reflux. I have reflux like when I eat something it just wants to come all the way back up to my throat and settled there. I’ve mentioned this to my doctor the three times I have seen him He gave me protonic‘s to take when I got home and I’ve been taking it and it’s not helping and he’s not listening any suggestions? I am to the point I don’t want to eat.

Hi

When are you taking the PPI? First thing in the AM may help the most with no food prior so that it can work alone and not compete with anything (confirm with Surgeon/Physician of course)

Also you maybe eating to fast, past your limit or not chewing thoroughly. Any of this possible? Try eating 1 oz over 10 mins with regular pauses to see how you feel.

Other than that try to go a step back in your plan to when food was easier to eat. You may simply not be ready to advance to a new food stage despite the planned timing. Your body will let you know this.

If all else fails politely demand further testing to confirm there is nothing mechanical/structural going on.

Good Luck 💜

This was my first thought. Thanks GreenTealael! I agree with all of your recommendations, including taking a step back in your food advancement. I know that if I get carried away and eat too fast, it feels like my food wants to come back up. It was worse in my first couple of months.

I'd also like to add positioning to her recommendations. After you eat, try to avoid bending over or bending severely at the waist. When I was a new sleever, I had a couple of experiences where I ate then was doing some housework that required me to be on my hands/knees, bending over, etc. More than once I felt my dinner come back up into my throat. Couldn't say if it was because I was on a soft diet or anything, but I don't have it now. Maybe something about an adjustment period for the new tummy to understand it's proper motility?

Good luck!

If all else fails, be assertive with your doctor and demand answers.

Ooooooo I forgot about positioning! Great tip!
