I had that feeling and it slowly subsided, but now its back. My guess about mine is the tubing they put down my throat while on anathesia, as I just had another round of general Wednesday. Yours might be different, I think mine was from being tubed. Ian
I get that when I eat or drink too fast. I also get it from solid foods, from which I've learned to chew to a mince.
I think one of the biggest challenges from the surgery is the eating part. My pouch doesn't let me know I am full until it's too late. I have to watch my food amounts closely and make sure it is not more than a cup. If it is soup or something liquidy, I can do 1 1/2 cups.
Solid meats right now are about 1/2 cup and I take a bite, put my fork down, chew and swallow in stages. Time consuming and tedious, but if I don't it won't sit well.
The pouch has a mind of it's own and it will seem like at times it will own you. It will get better as I am told. I hope so, my BBQ is collecting dust.....
