ok so i went in for my fill on monday (the 25th).. i had gained 8 pounds since my last unfill in march. i am really tight now. i can eat solid food, just very little..i mean like 4-5 bites(not sure how many ounces). my appetite is totally gone for the most part and i lost 10 pounds in the first week after the fill. my question is do you guys think i need a slight unfill cuz of my rapid weight loss or do you think my body has just been shocked back into loosing?

hey i think you need to get some of the fill out only because you don't want to dehydrate i have a band and ive been having it for three years iwent from 210 to 115 in a year that's with fill of course

I think if you feel okay and you're not getting "stuck" or vomitting then I would consider waiting a week or so and see how you feel... you don't want to unfill too much and start gaining again...

As long as you can keep fluids down and it doesn't hurt you should be ok however if you just don't feel it and don't feel right def get some removed. I had my band too tight once and I couldn't barely get water down....Hope this helps have a great day!

i waited about a week and it's no better..last nite i woke up choking and that was the final straw. i made an appointment for friday. i guess it's a good thing in a way cuz the 4th is my favorite holiday and i'll only be able to suck on some bbq sauce..LOL

I've had my band for 10 years now. If you wait for a couple of days the fill will loosen up. If you are vomiting and unable to keep any liquids down then you probably need some taken out. How big is your lap band and how much do you have in it now?

thanks momomia..i am now able to get liquids down, but i am on liquids till tomorrow..almost afraid to try solids, so i think i'll just ease my way into mushies and soft foods first,. i can help but wonder if this heat in chicago is making my band worse too. what has been your experience with high tempertures and your band.
