I get that feeling when I eat too much, eat too fast or with dry meats like chicken and turkey.  If I drink water with this feeling I throw up.

I would contact your center to make sure.

Sounds like you aren't sipping slowly or chewing as much as you should be

sip sip sip... chew til the food is mush!

sounds like you are eating too fast, eating too much at once, gulping down your food.  

smaller bights. smaller portions.  CHEW YOUR FOOD THOROUGHLY.  remember and uphold the 30 minute drinking rule.

either way, it doesn't hurt for you to check in with your centre to tell them your issue so they can make sure that it isn't something else.

all the best!

Wow, that sounds painful and unpleasant. I'm going to assume that if you can use the internet,  you can read and follow your guidelines. That being a given, I would have this checked out. Let us know what it turns out to be. 


Surgery date is Oct. 17th, 2013 in Ottawa. I was referred to the clinic in September 2012. The person performing my surgery is Dr Amy Neville.
