Can stomach movement from something that upset your stomach, like lactose intolerance, cause slippage or sever the internal stitches?

If the point of the liquid & mushy post-op diet is to keep your stomach from moving too much as it breaks down solid foods, then doesn't it make sense that other movement is also bad? And does your stomach move when it is grumbling from hunger?

I ate a smoothie and it upset my stomach so much that I felt like I had stomach cramps... I'm worried that the stiches the doc put internally to hold the band in place & prevent slippage might have been affected.

Am I crazy?
