I'm 5 years post op., and I have all the usual problems of dumping etc. but apart from being thin and tired, I'm fairly well. Sometimes I slip off my pillows when I'm asleep, and I get my stomach contents in my mouth and lungs. Very unpleasant and frightening,and painful, and it leaves a foul taste in my mouth. But I'm used to that taste, it's happened 3 or 4 times since my op.
But in the last week I've twice woken coughing and spluttering with a new foul taste much much worse than the other, really disgusting. I've never had it before, and anything new worries me. What is this? what's happening? Why now? I hadn't slipped of my pillows, I was still propped up. Can anyone help?
