      Does anyone have a problem eating oranges and/or grapefruit?   I love both those fruits but am afraid they may cause a blockage.

I have never had a problem form oranges/grapefruits other than they give me a stomach cramp. I agree with OHIO76. If you are worried about a blockage, just chew the hell out of them.
