Lastly, was it painful to swallow when you first started drinking liquids after surgery? Have you had any trouble with food getting stuck going down? Are you completely cured from Heartburn? Once again, thanks so much Joy for answering all my nagging questions!
You're not nagging. I had more questions than you when I was going to have my surgery. I liked to have drove Bill, Denise, and Kitt crazy.
If I didn't follow the diet he gave me the food would get stuck. I tried eating Raman noodles too soon and didn't chew like I was supposed to do and choked some. I did have a type of motility problem before the surgery and still do. I have to swallow a special way to prevent choking. The surgery did not do this.
I do not have any heartburn now. :)
