I am in the later part of my 3rd week post TIF procedure. My procedure was on 3-1-17. I have been chewing gum and was just reading into do's and dont's and gum is a don't. Does anyone have any similar situations? I was going by my doctors post diet. It did not say anything about gum. The main reason was due to burping. I feel fine except a lump/feeling in my throat every once in a while. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
