I've had my band surgery two years ago and have been doing great, but the last two nights I've had acid reflux so bad that it has awaken me in the middle of the night. I know I'm not too tight because it's been 6 months since my last fill. Any advise !!

Acid reflux, especially at night, is a sure sign that you're too tight. You probably just have a little swelling.

agree... the band can be tempermental. You must have swelling from something.
