Hi all, I know that we've all asked a million and one questions and yes, I should probably call my surgeon and ask first... When you get stuck, how long can you remain stuck for? And does it eventually dislodge itself and either go down or come up? I had more fill in on Friday, and now my band is super snug. Yesterday I only ate eggs for breakfast about 10am, and at 8pm I went to eat dinner. I was crazy busy yesterday and didn't have time to prepare real food, so I opted for those Steggles crumbed chicken tenders in the oven. They were soft and I had like 3 bites before getting stuck. I did the usual stuck routine, PB'd a number of times, had fizzy etc. Despite my attempts, not all of it came up or went down. Now, over 12 hours later, I can still feel a sort of lump in the back of my throat. I'm able to keep down liquids, and it sort of just gurgles it's way down and makes some weird noises. I keep burping and getting some relief, and the lump/stuck thing seems to be getting less and less. How long can I stay stuck for? Should I have coke (and not diet pepsi) to dislodge it? I know I should go to the surgeon, but I was just there on Friday and don't want to give up yet!
I found this article interesting, her child has a condition where food gets stuck in her oesophagus. It reminds me of how our food gets stuck and the Dr says to use coke to get rid of it http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/food/cocacola-saved-my-baby8217s-life8217/story-fneuz92c-1226676372224
