So this is what restriction feels like...
Sooooooooo - Dr. P ended up putting in 4 cc. While doing the swallow test in the office, I didn't feel anything. I could drink normally. He said we'd start with the 4cc total and then in 4 weeks adjust as needed.
This morning, I tried some watery malt-o-meal. First bite swallowed and WHAM! Tightness in my chest and back. So that's what it feels like if you take too big of a bite of even something soft. Barely could eat 2 oz taking teeny, tiny bites. Had a protein shake post-workout, and drank it with caution. Watery mashed potatoes for lunch (with some Fage Greek Yogurt mixed in)... tightness again.
We will see what things are like by tomorrow morning.
