Hello! I had gastric bypass on 7/6 and just started my purée phase on 7/22. Things seem to be going pretty well however when I’m eating purée chicken or tuna I get pressure in my chest and upper back and find myself burping a lot. Could this mean I’m eating too fast or taking big bites or is this something like acid reflux?

I don't think it's reflux, reflux doesn't happen when you're eating. Pressure means that you are getting full or are full, and burping means you are swallowing air with your food. Can you slow down? Put down the fork and chew until your food is mush and well-mixed with saliva? Then wait a minute or two until your next bite. My bypass was 6/29 and I'm still learning about what works and doesn't.

If this is only happening on Tuna/Chicken, then I'd probably drop these and try them again in a week or two. Many have different foods that give them issues at various stages post-op but seem fine later on. Mashed avocado does the exact same thing to me.

You are probably eating too much or too fast and burping is telling you to stop.

I sneeze when I have gone to far.
