Foamy Spit

Hi everyone,

 

I have been having a foamy white spit that keeps being produced. Any idea what this is from? And how to make it stop?

I am a month out and eating very soft food still (greek yogurt, apple sauce) I am not over eating for sure. I have had 2 endoscopes with a balloon at the end to open up strictures (9/26/14, 10/3/14).

 

Thank you

I had this happen to me nonstop the other day. I ate my lunch way too fast and it resulted in me having to "throw up" (white foam) for almost the entire day. I didn't bother checking with my doctor bc I assume it's bc I ate too fast and I haven't had it happen again. If it's ongoing and you've had strictures I'd check w your doctor.

I can barely take in food and drink not nearly getting enough. I feel full all the time. I was just treated twice for strictures.

Could be "thrush"  from the heavy antibiotics....

Thank you both. Stricture was just treated 2 days ago.

No antibiotics in last 2 weeks.

This a a relatively common thing with Gastric Bypass patients, strangely enough, called "the foamies".

It has to do with your pouch reacting to something you have eaten that it doesn't tolerate well. Probably either high carb or high fat.

Dont eat the things that give you the foamies and the symptoms will disappear.

It's probably the apple sauce doing it, especially if it has added sugar.

What is Structure?

ktomakin is talking about a stricture.  "...the new connection between the stomach pouch and the small intestine may narrow. This is called an anastomotic stenosis. It’s also known as a stricture.".
