Graduating to Full Liquids - tummy constricts?

(deactivated member)
on 4/10/12 1:29 pm
I JUST got moved to full liquids yesterday afternoon after a month (well 6 weeks) of clear liquids due to a leak/abscess.

In moving to full liquids, did your tummy constrict whenever the full liquid (whatever you ate) first 'hit' your tummy?

I'm not sure if I chose poorly (i.e. too many carbs in what I ate the first couple of times) or what.  I've eaten cream of shrimp soup (i think high carb'd) and cream of wheat instant with fiber/protein (very high carb).  I realized the carbs after :(  so ... no more of those.

But I just wondered if each time I try a new full liquid, should I expect my tummy to "constrict" (feels like it's 'wringing' then releases).

I'm 3 weeks post-op tomorrow, and I had the same "constricting sensation" first when I started full liquids, maybe 2-3 days, and then it started again with soft foods. I've been on soft foods a week now and it's gone. Maybe just our bellies getting to know food again? But youre not alone, mine got better within a few days each time.
