I am one and a half years out from my band....Very happy with my results.. but in the past couple months I have some episodes with vomiting in my sleep. I thought maybe it was my GERD, I do take omeprazole daily and I have stopped eating or drinking at least 4 hours before I go to sleep. Do i needto take my meds twice aday or any other suggestions??

My friend at work is almost a year out from hers and she started doing this around two weeks ago. Anyways, she finally went to the doctor and he had to unfill her a good bit and said her band had tightened up on its own. So he took out a couple of cc's from her band and gave her less restriction so her stomach could have a rest he said. I am still new at this but i know my friend said after he did that she has not done it since. Wish you the best of luck.

call your doctor first thing tomorrow. This is NOT something to mess around with.

Call your doctor ASAP! I used to stop breathing and have this happen before I found out that I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

My doctor said this is a sign that you're too tight and that it needs urgent attention. Hope you feel better soon!
