I had my surgery on the 1st Feb and was so excited to get off liquids after the 2 weeks.
My first purée meal was very runny mash and it hurt a little going down into my stomach.
It's like I can actually feel the food traveling down my stomach (or what's left of it) and it gives me this weird burning, sore feeling which only lasts about 15-30 seconds after each spoonful.
Ive tried making my foods more runny, smaller bites and eating even slower but nothing seems to work. I've been on purée for about a week now and by this stage I had hoped the pain would settle.
My concern is that I'm meant to be moving on to soft foods in a week and if I can't tolerate purée how will I tolerate soft foods?
My other concern is that because of the pain I just don't want to eat, I feel hungry but the pain is just so bothersome. Nothing excessive but it's just annoying.
