For the second week of aspirating, you can begin eating foods that need just a little chewing. This includes very well cooked vegetables, or fruit that is chopped to the size of a pencil eraser or smaller. You can also eat ground meats and soft fish such as salmon or tilapia. With these foods, meals should still aspirate very easily. If you find that aspirating is more difficult now and you start to get clogging, you will need to chew your food more carefully and choose foods that require less chewing. Make sure that everything you swallow is smaller than a pencil eraser (this is about the same size as the tube). This means that it may take you more time to eat a meal, which is a great step towards healthy and mindful eating. Use this time to focus on chewing and making sure that you’re drinking plenty of water during each meal to help flush the food out. Drinking plenty of water between meals is also helpful to keep you hydrated and avoid snacking.
When you first begin to aspirate, you will need to learn to chew your food extremely carefully to get the food to fit through the tube. This is a habit that will take some effort to change, because you will have to eat your food much more slowly than before. You will also need to drink at least one 16-oz glass of water with every meal, to help the flow of stomach contents through the tube.
For the first week that you begin aspirating, start with foods that do not need chewing. This might be mashed or pureed foods that are smooth consistency. You can use a food processor or blender to get foods to be smooth. With these foods, meals should aspirate very easily. Use this week to learn how to use the device, clean it, and create a daily routine around aspiration.
Your First Aspiration
The First Day
When your physician determines that your stoma has healed enough, about one to two weeks after your procedure, it's time to start aspirating! Before your first aspiration, the tubes and lanyard will be cut to the right length by your doctor or nurse. This helps make the device comfortable for you to use and keeps the drain tube from touching the water in the toilet. After the device has been fitted for you, your healthcare team will show you the parts of the device and how it works.You'll do your first aspiration at your doctor's office, to make sure you're comfortable with the system. You'll be given a small, soft meal like yogurt or soft granola bars which should aspirate easily. Avoid eating hard-to-chew foods within 3 hours of this appointment, as it may cause the device to clog while you're learning how to use it. Remember that there's a learning curve with using the device. Be patient with yourself as you learn your new way of eating (slowly!) and get used to the AspireAssist device. Be sure to follow the dietary suggestions for Weeks 1 and 2, and check out the videos section of this app for tips and tricks on aspirating.

After Your Procedure
After the procedure, you will have a long tube coming out of your abdomen. The new opening in your abdomen where the A-Tube is placed is called a stoma. This tube will be held onto your abdomen with tape to keep it in place while the stoma heals. The tube will be shortened to the surface of your skin about a week after the procedure. You will be given antibiotics and pain medications to take for several days after the procedure. You should plan to take it easy during this time while you recover. Most patients can return to normal activities within two to three days, but some patients take up to a week or more to feel better.
Although the procedure is minimally-invasive, many patients have pain or discomfort afterwards. You may take acetaminophen (Tylenol) as prescribed. If needed, a prescription pain medication can help make you more comfortable during your recovery.
Warning: Do not use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin), and naproxen sodium (Aleve). Because an incision was made to create the stoma for the A-Tube there is some potential for bleeding if these NSAIDS are used during the first few days.
