Anyone heard of that? No? Me neither. I just made it up since mashed potatoes seem to be the only thing I can eat without irritation or pain.
I'm not sure what happened. I must have eaten something that didn't agree with me.
I have discovered that I can NOT eat past 7pm. If I do, I wake up spitting, choking and coughing. The dreaded reflux.
Yesterday the band was super tight in the afternoon so I decided to just have a mini bag of popcorn while watching TV with the hubby at night. (Popcorn is not my favorite thing in the world but it has always gone down without a problem, even during my tightest episodes).
FOUR HOURS LATER, I woke up choking and spitting. I ran to the bathroom and up came itty bitty, chewed up pieces of popcorn. Crap!
I told the hubby that one of these days I'm going to choke to death in my sleep and that he should know to blame Phil (the band) for my death.
So today I had my protein shake for breakfast. Then 7 1/2 hours later I had some mashed potatoes. I forced myself to eat them because I was starting to feel weak. Then tonight I had a SF pudding. That's it for the day, and as I sit here and write this I'm burping and gurgling.
Looks like it will be a day of full liquids again tomorrow until this irritation goes back down. When I told hubby about 2 days of liquids he said "Yeah, but you have to do it for 2 days, not a day and then give up". My response was "YOU try to not chew anything for 2 days! It's torturous!".
It is torture, but I must do this to make sure all is well with the band.
I'm headed off to bed now and hoping I don't choke to death (on pudding) in my sleep!
Have a good night all.
