stomach cramping after eating ???

This just started recently where when I eat  not long after my stomach wil cramp up & then release & do this over & over for probably 20 minutes or more. When it cramps up it sometimes pushes food back up into my throat. It can be rather painful also.  I have been measuring everything & haven't gone over, & it's also been things I have eaten before that I had done fine with previously. I'm not drinking the 10 min. before & 40 min. after either.

has anyone else had this? If so what it is & how can I get it to stop??

I honestly am starting to get turned off on the thought of even eating anything solid because of this.

well, after seeing so many people look at my post & no answers, I figured that was my queue to call my surgeon. The nurse said she needs to run it past the PA & will get back to me. Apparently this isn't something any bit common. Just hoping now it's not bad.

I just heard back from my surgeon's office & apparently something I ate, my sleeve didn't like. So it inflamed my sleeve & that's why ever since my sleeve wants to push food back out after I eat.

They're putting me back on the Hyocosamine (sp?) for a few day s every 4 hrs & I go back to a full liquid diet for 2 full days & then to soft foods for 1 day & then try regular foods again. They think all should be fine then but if not call again.

Hopefully my experience helps others.

 Wow, that's kind of scary.  Do you have any idea what food it was that caused it?

I think it was the raw veggies I ate with some shrimp. I have had shrimp before & no probs.. However the carrot slice & broccoi were new.  That's my assumption
