Hi Everyone,

I feel like I'm going through a bad patch with my band and need some help and advice!!!

I was banded on September 14 and after 4 months I'm thrilled to be down 45 pounds. The first 3+ months were fine, but lately I'm feeling more band restriction and I'm finding that foods I could tolerate just two weeks ago are making me throw up. I'm trying to be mindful of taking small bites and eatling slowly, but just can't seem to handle the solid foods my doctor wants me to eat. Has anybody had this happen to them?

Any advice?

Thanks everybody.

Magis

Any time you PB make sure you follow it with at least a day of liquids to be sure that any irritation or swelling has a chance to dissipate. Many bandsters find themselves tightest in the mornings, if that is your case dont work against it....try oatmeal or a protein drink. One other thing that might be helpful is to drink something warm before meals. It really helps relax everything and makes it much easier to get good solids down!

Thanks for that advice. I've been going through a patch of PB not sure how to handle it. I'm finding it hard to keep down any foods. So I'll do the liquid thing and also a heating pad might help, I think.
