Thread: Why does my throat feel like it's bruised?

  1. Default Why does my throat feel like it's bruised?

    This has been going on for the past week or so and I did some digging on this board and online because I thought it might be acid reflux but now I'm not sure. It hurts to swallow, burp or hiccup.
    The sore, bruised feeling goes from mid-throat down to a bit below my collar bone.
    I was banded 4 weeks ago and haven't been filled at all yet.

    Just wondering if anyone has BTDT?

    Your surgeon may have put a tube down your throat during surgery. Some do that incase any complications arise. Mine did that to me and I did experience some soreness for a week due to that. Just sip fluids slowly and if it still bothers you this week, call your surgeon's office.

    Thanks for the comments, ladies!

    Graciesaunt, my surgery was a month ago and this problem has only popped up during the past week. I did more research last night on GERD and acid reflux in general and this may be the problem after all. Today I've been taking acid reducing medications and have been feeling better. I will try to get an appt. in w/ my doctor in the meantime!
