I thought it might be helpful for others to share some advice about the problem that some people have when you keep accumulating foamy stuff in your throat that you cannot swallow, and have to spend time spitting out after eating, perhaps for an hour or so to clear it.
It may not be that everyone is the same, but what seems to happen is that saliva and gastric juices are accumulating in what is left of the stomach. With the absence of the valve at the top with the junction of the oesophagus, air mixes with this cocktail and it becomes like a milkshake froth. Domperidone is seen as the normal solution to this problem, but it has to be used in a certain way. One needs to take Domperidone 30 – 40 minutes before eating. Domperidone as well as being an anti-sickness drug is also a muscle relaxant so it relaxes the muscles of the digestive system so that everything moves downhill a little more quickly and moves this gunk out of the chest area. Taking it 30 -40 minutes before eating can be the most important bit.’
So if you have this problem, and find that domperidone is not working, it might be worth thinking about when you take the medication as that can make a difference.
The other thing to think about is whether you swallow a lot more air than normal with food. This can sometimes result in smelly wind. So eating fairly slowly, and chewing everything well can also make a difference.
