Have a question

 Hi, I'm 2 weeks out and I was told by my dr that I was able to try some soft food now. Well yesterday evening I decided to try some tuna fish mixed with a little mayo. Not being a tuna expert, I didn't realize that  white albacore tuna was a little different than reg tuna fish. I noticed it was a little more dry and chunkier. I broke it up pretty well. My first bite.. As it was going down I felt a little bit of uncomfortablness. Wasn't sure if it was just in my head. Second bite, I felt the same thing so I stopped. I went to sleep a little later and now I've woken up feeling some nausea and some discomfort like something feels stuck. I'm worried that the tuna was too dry and chunky therefore those bites I took got stuck somewhere. Should I try to make myself vomit? I'm drinking water and everytime the water goes down i can feel the uncomfortablness more. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm really worried.. Thx, Robin.

Try papaya enzyme if you have some.  Being only 2 weeks out I would not suggest trying to throw up.  But drinking water might force it up.

 I've never even heard of papaya enzyme. What does it do? I am drinking water now to see if it helps. I really appreciate your reply. Thx so much!

Papaya enzyme helps to break protein down.  You can get it at GNC.  Drinking hot tea has helped me in the past.

 Thx everyone! I kept drinking lots of water and it finally went through. Won't be eating of that tuna again for a good while.

Do you have a food processor? I put my tuna/albacore with all the ingredients and and pureed it.

Yes I have one and should have used it. I'll wait another week or so and try the albacore again then purée it this time. Thank u very much for the suggestion

I use papya enzyme myself, but if you have it in the house, I've heard that mixing some meat tenderizer with water and sipping on that helps...
