All this weekend since being discharged ive managed to control the vomiting and keep small amounts of food down orally and milk I think I'll just put a straw in the bottle. 

Ive went back to what I used to like ages ago  because I don't like homemade smoothies I'm going to try the ones out the shop.

I'm just going to try everything I used to eat and go from there 

Thanks for all replies

Just chucking in that the first thing I was able to eat on a regular basis and swallow successfully was crumpets, they were the perfect texture for me.
