    Small slip-unfill

    Hi can you tell me what symptoms you had to know you have a slippage every since yesturday I have been feeling tigher and it feels like I am taking in air with everything I drink and eat so lots of burping and feels like air trapped in my check it's not painful just very uncomfortable kind of feels like I have to burp but I can't get it out. thanks for any help
  2. Does anyones band change when the weather changes? we just had our 1st freeze and as the temp dropped I was tighter and today I feel like I just had a fill just curious if anyone else has dealt with this

    1. Sojourner


      No, weather and altitude changes have never seemed to affect my band, but stress does in a significant way. Just another way to show how different and individual we all are!

  3. it took me 3 fills before I started to fill restriction

    it's more than likely gas. it took a good month for all the gas to move out. I was very bloated and very uncomfortable I tried gas X it helped very little hang in there try to walk as much as you can it will help to move the gas down
  7. well I am not a 1-6monther I am a 15monther but I eat a lot of the same things that you eat I have had the egg scrambler, tuna, slamon that you listed above. After a year I eat a lot of other choices, things that I can't eat might be a smaller list here is what I eat yesturday. breakfast: 4oz greek yogurt with a a spoon of granola. 1 EAS prot shake morning snack scoop of Peanut Butter and celery lunch BBQ pull pork wraps(crockpot recipe & wrap the meat in in green leafy lettuce with a little shredded cheese) mid day snack choc sugar free puding with 1/4 scoop of protien powder( I use unjury no flavor or choc fav) dinner portbella pizza(take a portbell mushroom cap cover with pizza sauce your choice of meat and cheese bake for 15-20mins) and diced cucumber tomatoe salad bedtime snack( with vitmains and meds)eas protien shack 2oz cubes cheese and 2oz deli meat this is a typical day for me. I take in 1000-1350 calories daily(depending if I exercise that day) I try to change it up so I am not bored. I hope this helped although I am a little further along...enjoy the journey

    Can Eat Bread But Not Chicken?

    I can rarely eat chicken I don't have problems with the canned chicken so I use it a lot in Soups and stews. the harder the bread(toast ,crackers, french etc,) the easy to get down in very small pieces.

    Need to get an unfill tomorrow

    I had a fill yesturday I couldn't even keep water down all night without refluxing or PB so i went in todayI really wanted him to remove 1cc( he put in 2cc) but he said .5cc should do it I don't feel any better so far(it's only been 1hour) does it take a while after the unfill the nurse said I am probably swollen and tender do to all the vomiting but if I am still vomiting how is that going to change I am very worried I have lost 6lb in 24hour and my blood suger is getting pretty low i don't want to be a buggaboo but I think I should go back in what do you think? or at least go get an IV drip to get my fluids back up
