I had my first experience with something getting stuck last night while I was eating dinner. I was having cottage cheese and I guess I took too big a bite because all of sudden I felt like I was going to get sick. I went in the bathroom and stood there for a couple of seconds waiting for something to happen. Finally I went into the kitchen and took a drink of water which must have cleared the blockage because I felt fine then. I was even able to continue eating dinner. I have seen people post questions about wondering if they had something stuck and others that have answered that if you have something stuck, you will know. I must agree with this assessment. It was kind of scary when it was happening and afterwards I felt kind of silly because I know that I haven’t been chewing the soft foods enough.
Since I’m only eating soft foods now, I haven’t felt much restriction. I’ve wondered what it will be like when I am eating regular food again and this experience has given me a sneak peak. They weren’t kidding about taking small bites and needing to chew, chew, chew everything thoroughly!
