No "Greens" They Told Me

Well, unless they are "puréed". Doctor told me this after my esophageal dilation procedure on Wednesday. When they ran the scope, they saw some of the collard greens I had eaten the day before still in my esophagus. Apparently, foods of that type take longer to digest, and since my esophagus tract doesn't contract like it did before the surgery after food goes down, some foods, like greens, oranges, etc. tend to reflux back upwards into the esophagus more than other foods.

I LOVE greens though. Because of that fact, I'll probably STILL eat them, just not as close to the time of my monthly procedures. Maybe they'll be non-the-wiser.
