Scrambled eggs really!?!?!

OK, so, I have gotten stuck more times in the last 3 months that I care to discuss. I think if I were to put a number on it, it would be somewhere around 10.

After my first fill I got stuck I think twice. After my second fill I think it happened 3 times. This time after my 3rd fill, which was 4 days ago, 5 times! It's like I totally forgot the rules after a fill. I did good with liquids Wednesday and Thursday. Friday and Saturday was supposed to be soft foods. Totally skipped that part. DUH!!!

Friday early on wasn't bad. Friday night I went to dinner with a friend and had chicken and rice. It must have been the talking cause I paid no attention. Yes it happened. UGH. It was minor. It cleared pretty quick. OK No big deal. I was able to continue with dinner.

Saturday, I had a protein shake for breakfast no problem, Thought I would try a Eggo waffle with it. Oh not good. I got about 3/4 of the way done and it happened again. That one experience must not have been enough for the day. While I was shopping I got some roasted nuts. Snacking on nuts and walking around the mall = bad idea. Yes stuck on, I think it was a roasted almond.

By now my throat has to be inflamed so bad. I mean I should totally know better by now. So what does this bright one do that evening??? I try to eat the chicken and rice left overs from the previous night. Not good. I got like 2 bites down and that was all she wrote. SOFT FOODS!!!Yep totally skipped that phase.

OK So Sunday morning rolls around. My daughter made scrambled eggs. Soft foods! Awesome!! NOT!!! I got stuck on scrambled eggs.... UGGGHHHH... I have gotten stuck on scrambled eggs 3 times now. Each time the eggs have been dry, like scrambled hard or something. But I think its time to 86 the eggs. I even chewed until it was sludge. I mean I have eaten bread and I haven't gotten stuck. I think I might try over easy.

My esophagus had to have been so inflamed. I took some ibuprofen hoping it would help reduce the inflammation in my esophagus. The rest of the day was good. My throat felt much better. I even had some cauliflower at the party and I had no issues and I had some chicken and rice for dinner and it successfully went down. I think the ibuprofen helped.

Anyway, tomorrow is a new day. And weigh in day. I do have lunch with a friend tomorrow. I am strictly fluids till then and soft foods for lunch. We are going to Qdoba's so I think a naked burrito is in order minus the rice. I should be good with that.

I never realized how hard it is to break old habits until these stuck episodes. The more fills I get the more aware of what I put in my mouth and it's consistency before I swallow. It's a learning process. Just wish I was a quicker learner.....

Tootles for now!

  1. And you will learn that some days you can eat scrambled eggs and some days you can't - you will learn the signs! I think it took me 18 months, but I am, in a way, still learning!

    1. Sometimes I feel like I should already know all this. Hopefully I will keep learning from these expereinces.

  3. After a stuck episode I go on liquids for a day to reduce the swelling. Eggs unless fried are a no go for me. And chicken and rice seems so dry I wouldn't even try it.

    1. Yikes! That was the first thing I thought after I got stuck too. "At least now I know I have a band." Yes slowing down is definately in order. It's a learning process for sure.
