So I'm now 7 months after my surgery.
Basically I'm eating what I want now but smaller portions to what I was having before.
I'm not feeling any nausea now thank goodness.
I do still have a few symptoms which I'm hoping will disappear in time.
They are a bit of phlegm still in my throat so I'm coughing a bit and my throat feels a bit sore. I used to have a permanent blocked feeling in my nose and weird smell which has just about gone now and both nostrils are clear.
My tummy still feels a bit tender and mucsel a bit of a tight feeling.
I had a slight burning sensation in my throat the other day and I gave in and had a gaviscon.
I'm still taking plenty of Deflatine for the wind.
On the whole I think I'm getting on OK compared to before my surgery when I was taking Nexium 40mg per day 300mg Ranitadine and lots of gaviscon, I was sleeping sitting up and felt nausea most nights.
Now the only medium I'm taking is deflatine.
I'm having no problem with my swallow as long as I chew everything to a liquid before I swallow it goes down no problem and stop eating when I start feeling full.
I've had a good Christmas with no trauma, I've been able to have a drink only 1 drink tho. Whereas before I could have maybe 3. I've lost about just over a stone and a half and it's staying off.
I've lost track of my blog I put on here in June when I had my surgery, I recorded everything I ate drank and passed, pain killers I took etc.
Good luck to anyone considering the surgery.
