Another weird Tummy Episode.

@#%$@$%#$ it...

After a great day I had another one of my horrible painful vomit episodes...and that is how I am going to begin the story.

After a nice lie in I got up and surfed the blogs, did a little farmville farming session and read my emails. Davd, Grace and I then went down to give my daughter a lift to the university for a study session (car issues).

When we dropped her off we noticed that the Portland farmers market was back in session so David, Grace and Grant (grandson) did a bit of a shop. We got some lovely potatoes, onions, potted basil, potted oregano and a loaf of artisan bread.

We stopped at the grocery store for a few odds and ends not offered at the farmers market and had a luscious coffee then another stop at a deli for lunch. We then went to the light rail station to pick up my daughter and came home.

Grace went off to a friends, my oldest daughter took the car home for the night along with my grandson :) and David and I decided to take a long bike ride. We went 8 miles and stopped for a drink and then I left him to carry on so that I could get my 12 miles. I had a visit with a neighbor and then carried on home (two hills on the way) for a grand total of 10.

So...then a bit of a rest, some TV, some computer, some knitting and the issues began.

David made me my second vodka and orange of the day (had one during our bike ride). I drank it sort of fast but not unusually so. 20 minutes later I noticed I was extremely hungry and cut some cheese and grabbed a few wheat thins. I ate...then the pain started. This has happened before. I always attributed it to something being stuck but please..I have eaten crackers and cheese so many times I cannot count without ever...ever having a problem. I went in hoping for a vomit (nope not a pb this time)...I finally manged one..still pain...another...still pain...finally after laying down on the floor on my stomach I threw up again and felt some relief. OH did I mention pain? It felt like my stomach was inflating and hurt all across from side to side..This time my port hurt too.

It has all of the signs of an extreme stuck episode without the offending item being involved. I have done this three other times--once with candy corn, and a Wendy's hamburger, Once with a margarita and once with cold roast beef. This one freaks me out more than the rest...stupid is written all over the others...this one..not so much. I guess I am going to have to bring this up with my surgeon next time I see him. Do any of you have any ideas or even similar experiences? Oh and for you newbies...just 4 in a year and a half...Dont wnat to scare the crud out of you :)

Ack - I cannot think for the life of me what this could be attributed too, but it doesnt sound fun. Yeah, I would bring it up with your doc, see if he can throw some light on it. Sorry I couldnt help.

No idea where that would have come from. But only 4 in a year. I have had 7 more like vomiting episodes today alone. I am worrying I may be too tight as I have offically eaten squat today after all the pbing. Sounds like a great day ...till the episode anyway

I had one after eating some kiwi fruit where I pb'd some blood, that scared me. My doctor said I was most likely still swollen from a fill i had a few days before. It was painful like you just described.

I feel your pain. I am a newbie and after my first fill had so much vomiting (not just PBing) even on water, my stomach lining became inflammed for days. After a unfill, I was on fluids for two days and am now just feeling ok with regular food. My guess is that your port (inside your stomach) is inflammed for some reason. You need to mention it to your surgeon. Hope you feel well soon.

Uggh - I'm sorry that sounds bad. I'm don't get too many stuck episodes, so I'm not sure. They do say that some people have problems with citrus pulp. Could it have been the orange juice?

I've read through your post twice to analyse the times between eating, what you ate etc - and I must admit I'm puzzled because if anything the exercise would have speeded up the passing of food from pouch to stomach. I know you always say it to me, but how about you were soooo hungry, and (I know from your previous posts) you adore cheese and biscuits, that some of it went down insufficiently chewed? I know it's obvious, and no doubt you will have already thought of that. All you can do if you really want to find out, is to duplicate the experience and the food, and see what happens....

Caroine-that is the best I can come up with...when it came out it seemed chewed enough but I was really hungry.

I will for sure tell the surgeon.
