Do I need a fill



Recommended Posts

Ok pretty much I can eat anything never any problem until last night :cursing: I was eating and I got stuck, I had eaten this item before and got stuck, now could it be I just have a problem with this item or does it mean I still have restriction. I am confused on the restriction feeling.. Can someone explain?:thumbdown:

You probably have a problem with this particular item. I have a few that I avoid like the plague because I REALLY hate being stuck. breads are on that list, but I still get fills because it will help me control the quantity of foods that don't get stuck.

Jill, I agree with Marie, this particular food item is most likely just going to be a problem food for you that you may need to avoid. For instance, it doesn't matter how tight or loose my band is, I cannot eat any types of bread or corn.

If you are finding that you are able to eat larger quantities of food than previously and you are getting hungry between meals, then it probably is time for a fill.

You're probably experiencing a clumping episode where the small particles of food are bunching together at the stoma and the combined mass can't slide through. This happens with dry meat for me. Doesn't matter how much I chew that pork chop, the itty-bitty meat fibers are going to bunch up. The only remedy is to eat super slow or eat a bite of something else with this food to help lubricate the particles.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
