Reading in the forums, I have come up with some questions I am hoping someone can answer for me. What is slimming and PBing? They sound yucky - how frequent do they occur?

Also is there somewhere that you can look at the post op diet?

thanks

"PRODUCTIVE BURPING"

it happens when you eat too much or too fast, or drink too soon. It also happens to me when I eat something my band doesn't like, like bread or pasta, or sticky rice. :)

eewwwwww the first time I ever "slimed" and puked was when I took ONE bite of white rice. Well should have known cause everyone says don't eat it but of course I did anyway I guess just to see.

Sliming feels like this:

You eat either something too much, too fast, or the wrong kind of food. For me I slime when I eat meat that has been re-heated in the microwave because it's just too dry. Or when I've eaten bread or rice. I also find that I end up sliming or getting food stuck or puking when I wait until I'm STARVING to eat because it's much harder to control how fast I eat - so I try to avoid this by eating at the first point of noticing I'm hungry.

It's like your food sits at the top of your stomach (and you can feel this sensation) It feels like something is stuck and that you are overfull - even though it may be just your first or second bite of food. What I mean when I say it feels like you're overfull - is that before the band, when I used to eat eat eat to the point of a dull pain in my stomach then this is similar to how I feel when food is stuck in my stoma.

So then you start getting this warm, slimy spit coming back up into your mouth. It happens to me anywhere from 15-30 minutes after I eat. And then it's the waiting game to see if what you've eaten is going to go down or come back up. So usually about 10 minutes after trying to wait the sliming out - I just go to the restroom and try to relax my esophagus so whatever is stuck can come up without the heaving that goes along with puking. Sometimes it comes up like a slimy deep cough sound, sometimes I've had to puke and heave, and sometimes it just slimes back up without any harsh heaving.

Either way - it's clear that you've slimed - because the consistency is slimy

Okay sliming sounds really BAD. I am living in blessful hope that it never happens to me or if it has to happen I am alone when it does. It sounds not only uncomfortable but deeply embarassing. Thanks for the info and I do mean that. I just purchased Dr. O's book so I can have more info.

my family calls it "Jellyfishin".....I avoid it all cost...you will know what works and what doesn't as far as eating. We had our first office luncheon, I was very careful chosing what I ate and ate very little....we went at 11:00 a.m. and that's still a little early for me to eat solids.....my stomach is tight in the mornings. Anyway, I did fine. A plastic baggie is a good thing to carry around for an emergency situation, I've not experienced this but maybe 5 or 6 times since my surgery May 20...it is uncomfortable just remember to chew your food very good... There are five of us banded in my family...some since 2003, it is a life changing experience...I love it and so happy I've had the band surgery! Good luck...just remember the first "jellyfish" is probably the first of many to come :wacko:
