Hello, I am 29, had my surgery about 3 weeks ago, and am now trying to figure out how to manage my eating and drinking. I have had problems with dumping and lately gas. Every time I eat or drink I get a feeling in my new esophagus - like I want to throw up what I just had, and ultimately I end up running to a sink to relieve myself. It's not vomiting, more big bubbles of air that come out with my saliva. And when this happens I experience relief. Does anyone else suffer from this and knows what the cause is? Also, pretty much every day my "stomach" hurts, and I generally have a "sick" feeling. Is this normal for everyone? My diet eat less than 1 cup of food then drink less than one cup 45 minutes after. It doesnt seem to matter what it is I eat I think - we think it is how I eat it - apparently the surgery cuts of nerve endings from your stomach so it doesnt empty as quickly as usual and that is the reason for discomfort.
Anyone who has had similar experiences please write...
