Are you eating it all really slowly.. and only like 1/4 cup of it? But still I'd call your doctor

Hi,
Do you know if your surgeon put fluid in your band at the time of surgery? (it seems like some of the people that have this problem right after surgery had a surgeon who put fluid in at the time of surgery) If so, maybe they need to remove it. If not, perhaps you are still swollen and need to stick with liquids for another week. Drink protein shakes instead - they might fill you up more.
Best wishes!

Its funny you say that....The same day i got banded when i would drink too fast i would get the hiccups so,....i learned to go real slow ever since.. also you know how you are trying something and you are not sure how it tastes.. you take the smallest lick you can ever take.... well thats me.. and then about the third lick...there she blows... i have to walk around with a barf bag....

Im thinking that maybe he did because last week i went in for a fever and the dietitian made a statement saying...he may have to remove some of the fluid.. but i didnt think anything about it cause they arnt suppose too

I'm still on the liquid diet, I was banded on 12/15. I'm sleeping for like 2 hours, then I wake up, walk around, go to the bathroom and back to bed for 2 hours. It's weird! I never used to have that problem!

Oh that's terrible. Posted Image

I was banded on the 6th Dec and have 2cc in my band and didn't have any of the difficulties you are experiencing.

I'm able to eat just about anything- but I'm still sticking to mushies and liquids and feel hungry about every 2 hours! I'm also still having the protein shakes as I like them and they fill me up for a little longer.

I hope you Dr. can fix this asap. It can't be good for your band or you.

Good luck!
