So I am at seven weeks and I notice that every morning I am ok, not too much bloating not too much gas pain. But then around 12 or 1 o’clock I am all bloated and start to have that gassy feeling again. I know in the beginning it was because I was filled with air however, now it is 7 weeks and I notice by the time I get out of work and have dinner I feel like that girl “blueberry” from Willy Wonka.

I take gas x faithfully and I’m not eating anything different still my same pasta or potatoes. As it seems that a lot of food still doesn’t work for me yet.  Any Suggestions is this Normal?

You are still early in recovery. You may try staying away from the starchy foods and try something a little easier for a couple weeks and see if that helps.

Take care,

Due to swelling of the wrap used to prevent your reflux, the following two short term effects are noted in most patients after reflux surgery:

  • Difficulty swallowing some foods (dysphagia).
  • Abdominal bloating and pain after eating foods that distend the stomach (gas bloat syndrome).
  • Increased amount of intestinal gas (Flatus).

On Average, these symptoms last from two to six week from what I have read.

Between the third and eighth week you can slowly add soft foods to your diet. Some recommended soft foods are meat with gravy, soft cooked scrambled eggs, hot cereals, cold cereals softened in milk, soft cheeses, sushi and soft cut up pasta. During this period, you should avoid raw vegetables, steak, chips, tacos, bread, sandwiches and hamburgers. 

Any questions you have that are causing you concern do contact your phycisian.  I am sure you will here from other members who have been where you are.

Kindly,

Kitt

Kitt gave some great options. The scrambled eggs and some type of hot cereal watered down works good. Toast also works as you can chew it to a liquid. Add butter and jam if you like also.

I also had some fruit like apple sauce, peaches, and pears that were soft from a can. Pudding and jello with some fruit in it. I was able to eat fish pretty early. Very small bites and chew really good.


Take care,
Bill
