Ok...I got a fill on Wednesday...just a little reminder for those would might have missed my last post.

I had thought that I had experienced a "stuck" episode before....Boy was I wrong!

Thursday I was allowed soft I tried a bit of toast. It wasn't dry or anything and I only took a teeny bite....forty five minutes later I stopped feeling like my heart was going to explode and that I could actually take a breath without wanting to die. It was the second most painful thing I have ever experienced the first being when I woke up after having the damn band put in in the first place.

It hurt for the rest of the day!

I stuck to liquids and anything I could puree for 24 hours. Which isn't a rule my surgon gave me but seemed like a good idea none the less.

So along comes Friday night. Pizza night. We get these awesome thin crust pizzas and this week it was my husbands turn to pick what our toppings were...A complete shocker came when he picked the exact same pizza he always does. It is a great pizza. It has spinach, feta, chicken, herbs, and sun-dried tomatoes.

Some where in the back of my mind was a little warning saying that I should pick off the sundried tomatoes...did I do it? N O!

Three bites into the first solid food I had eaten all day and I regretted it. This time I ended up having to do everything in my power to get the piece of tomato leather OUT! Nothing hurt, other then the being stuck part, so I wasn't worried about the whole slippage/prolapse/ stuff...but  OMG....SO this time I did liquids for two days...

I have learned that toast, waffle frys, sun dried tomatoes, and tortillas are no no foods....

Boy I wish I had learned the "Chew, chew, chew" rule earlier in this whole process...It might have saved me the pain of the last two days.....

On the bright side, I have restriction....So now I just need to learn to adjust and I will be


  1. poor thing..sometimes we learn the hard way!

  2. I'm so sorry about your stuck episodes. I learned the hard way too. It does get easier. I still sometimes forget to chew chew chew. Remember, chew chew chew, slow slow slow. I always thought fluid would help push it down. NOT.

  3. I hope you are doing better today!
