So I know food gets stuck at the wrap site. Is it dangerous? I mean can it do any harm to the wrap or is it ok and i just need to drink more water, chew better. How long does this normally last? Thanks

It is not dangerous, just very uncomfortable.
I had something stuck almost every day until middle of week 6. The only thing you can do is take smaller bites and pauses between every bite.
I could kind of feel when it opened up and I could eat a little faster

Water actually made it worse for me, like i schocked the system

Nal-

When something gets stuck try your best to relax and drink something room temp or slightly warm, This will help to relax the area of the wrap and let it through. I agree with Jesper, it's not dangerous just uncomfortable. Chewing better and waiting to feel the last bite go through the wrap helps too.

take care,
Bill

Picking up on the thread below, I got some food stuck in rather than above the wrap earlier today. This was extremely uncomfortable until the food passed through. Should I be concerned that I may have stretched the wrap (bit like a balloon dilatation) as the food felt like it was stuck in the narrowest part of the wrap? I am only entering the start of week three of recovery, so wonder whether I could have done some damage.

Thanks all,
Simon

Simon-

No. It happened a lot to me at first, but slowing down and being sure each bite clears before taking another one helps.

Take care,
Bill

Thanks Bill. Did you also experience residual discomfort after having food stuck? I have a nagging pain running from back to front (through my sternum) the day after, which feels so much like heartburn. Presumably this is just an irritated wrap that needs to cool down? I have switched back to v soft foods/liquids to help this along, but would be good to know if others have also felt the after effects of getting food stuck, in addition to the discomfort of the sticking event itself. In my case it was some meat, which was quite painful while it was stuck. Took about a minute to clear through.

Oh yeah. Feels like something tore apart.

I've had it happen with mashed taters and french fries.

Backing off your diet is a good move. Let things settle down some before you advance it again.

Take care,
Bill

Thanks Bill. Back on liquids/v soft foods and feeling less sore, though still a little heartburn/refluxy. Must learn to be patient I suppose.

Cheers,
Simon
