pain under left ribcage

Today I tried some stage three foods for breakfast about 5 am - I had 1/4 slice of whole wheat toast, 1 oz of Greek Yogurt, and 1 tbsp of peanut butter. I was too full to eat it all - so left the crust of the bread, and a bit each of the yogurt and peanut butter.

About 10 AM, I started to notice a pain underneath my left rib cage...about three inches up and to the left of my belly button. I can't decide if it's pain from eating (which to me seems like I should have taken less than 5 hours to kick in....)or from bending over too many time to pick up the mess my children made in the living room. I took a nap, and it got better, but occasionally really aches.

When you guys have pain from trying different foods, what is like, and where do you typically feel it?bb

Bread just doesn't sit well with me. Usually I feel my food pain up in my chest and throat, like it won't go down. When I feel pain in my "belly", it's usually bad gas or a bout of diarreha (sp?) about to come on. I hate that stuff. Try a gas-x strip to ease the gas pain. The other stuff, you'll feel much better after it's out. (Sorry for the grossness.)

I hope you're feeling better soon. Good luck!

Bread will always be easier for post surgery patients if it's been toasted. I have no idea why, but since surgery, I have worked out it's not about food groups, it's about texture of food. Get the texture right, and you're fine

I'll have to try toast, thanks Bailey!

I have avoided the bread issue pretty much as I always loved breads, cakes, pies.. etc.. I eat crackers and combo's.. but that is as far as I push the bread. I feel if I would add the toast, soon it would be more..
