posted on here a few days ago with concerns and thought i would post again.
I am now a week post surgery, tonight i had an awful burning feeling in my upper abdomen, felt like the old acid feeling creeping up, however, only gas gets into my esophagus, and so im not sure whether it is acid or trapped gas.
i am belching a lot and feel uncomfortable, the burning/gassy feeling is just above where i had the top incision for the surgery, and like i said, i dont appear to be getting heartburn as such, just a bit worried that the wrap is undone althouhgh as i posted last time...i can never tell if im overreacting.
Also, what was everyone's diet like post op? I have drank a lot of coffee today and wonder whether maybe this has caused the gassy burning feeling, my diet sheet said i can drink coffee, tea, juice water ect.
I have eaten some toast with water today (chewed down to liquid) and havent experienced any problems although im not sure whether i should have introduced this or not.
Lastly, alcohol? when would be reasonable to try a drink? im aware i cant have fizzy drinks but as far as alcohol goes i dont drink beer/lager/cider ect.
I am 20 years old and it would be nice to know when i could try a wine what with christmas coming up!
