Somedays, it's hard to tell the difference!
Apparently, my band clamps shut in the middle of the night. Last night was my first night 12 hour night shift at the base hospital. About 1am I was starving...like stomach growling, trying to digest itself kind of hungry. So I went to warm up the turkey with gravy and sweet potato casserole I brought from home. One bite of turkey and two bites of sweet potato casserole. Stuck...painfully stuck and going to throw up.
Tossed it up and was still very uncomfortable, lots of sliming, etc. Threw up two more times. Definitely looked like I threw up more than I ate...weird huh? Anyhow...quite embarrassing considering it was my first night shift with a new crowd. I'm feeling a little tight today yet but am wondering how I'll make my protein/calorie goals if I can't getnything down during the hours I'm actually awake? Protein shakes, I guess.
I've also noticed that I tend to have more "stuck" episodes followed by PB or throwing up when it's meat that's been reheated in the microwave. Not just the turkey, but I've noticed it with steak, chicken and other meats. Goes down fine the first time, then if I warm up leftovers the next day....that's when the whole stuck, PB, slime, vomit episodes occur. Anyone else notice this?
It's just so frustrating to tolerate one thing one time and then 12 hours later get stuck on the exact same thing, hence the title.
