Well that's not pleasant...

Just experienced my first stuck and PB. Came home from the movies with the boys (Despicable Me - funny one) and was starving cause I decided not to indulge in popcorn. Decided a dry, cold pork chop left over from dinner was a better option. Boy was I wrong!!! Tasted lovely and thought I chewed it up enough, but NO! after a couple of bites I could feel the burning pain in my chest, then BAM, up it came. Nothing like having a full on puke, but rather a controlled slow foamy vomit. It lasted about 20 minutes and I can still feel a little pain there. I was amazed at how much foam I could produce in such a short amount of time. Definitely not something I wish to repeat in the near future.
On a brighter note, at least I now know my band is working :)


  1. Sorry you got stuck! I have a hard time with dry meat, especially leftovers. Almost any meat has to be dipped in barbecue sauce or ketchup or something for me. Hope you feel better.

  2. I'm sorry, hun! I generally stay away from leftover meats...they can sneak up on you! :)

  3. Hi there,
    So nice to see another Aussie on board :) I'm glad you commented on my blog - love seeing new faces.
    Ouch those stuck episodes suck and hurt like the dickens. Just take it easy for a few days with softer food and yeah, maybe stay away from cold chewy meat lol. We all learn the hard way - at least once. Congrats on your journey so far - look forward to reading more of your posts in the future.

  4. Yeah, next day meat is a rarity as this is a typical outcome. Only if it was super moist the first time and still only if I cut it up real small (like shred with a pizza cutter) and add sauce. Marinara works well to keep the calorie count lower than BBQ or salad dressing.
