    Hi everyone! I am 3 weeks post op and I am able to eat some soft foods. Unfortunately, I am having some problems with pain and the food getting stuck after eating. Actually, it got worse now and every time I take my medication or sometimes even a drink of water causes pain. I am scheduled for a barium swallow tomorrow to see what is going on. Has anyone else had any trouble with this? I am chewing my food until it is almost dissolved in my mouth.

    I didn't have this problem because I went a little slower on the food stages. I hopersonally your pain goes away. According to my guide book, if the food gets stuck or that feeling occurs it is recommended to drink warm liquids and nor way anything til the stomach can relax. I have not had this issue but I hope that it helps you if the doc didn't find any other complications.

    I can't imagine eating soft foods at 3 weeks out, wow! I hope the test went well and they were able to figure out what was going wrong. Keep us posted!
