  1. Oh girl I didn't realize you were having so much trouble. I am so sorry to hear that. You have certainly kicked butt after surgery. We were banded the the same time. I'm wondering if they tried any medications to try and calm it down???? I don't have any input on the sleeve because I never researched it. For me having 3 autoimmune disorders my only option was the band and if it ever has to come out that will be it for me. I know it's scary about gaining it back and it happened to me but only because i had to take high doses of steroids again for months. You can keep it off if that ends up being your choice you have done so great and are such an inspiration to me!!! I wish you the best in whatever you decide but mostly I hope you get some relief of those symptoms soon!
  2. I had gone up to 4cc at one point and had reflux bad and major stuck episodes. Had an unfill down to 2cc until things calmed down and after a few small fills I'm back up to 3.5 cc now. I agree everyone is different and that may be all you will ever need for your personal band. I also agree though to not let it go on like that to long because it's not worth the damage it could cause. My doctor has always said after a fill if I have any problems getting liquids down to come right back for a tiny unfill. All doctors are different as well. Wishing you the best!!

    Port Site Concern

    I have had this happen to me it was an allergic reaction to the lidocaine that the PA used to numb me. You can take benedryl maybe if the itching is bad but it should resolve fairly quickly. I can no longer get numbing medicine with my fills. I have had several fills after that with no problems. Best of luck I hope this helps.
