I had my lap band surgery in Dec of 2011. I lost 75 pounds with only 1 fill. I never needed another fill because I was really content with my weight (although not at goal). Last summer, I started having heartburn for the first time since I got my lap band. I had an EGD and everything was fine. I didn't know my dr wouldn't be able to diagnose a slipped band that way. After my EGD, I noticed all of a sudden that I am always starving! I finally made the trip to my surgeon. He diagnosed me with a slipped band & emptied my band (5cc). I'm supposed to do liquids for a week, mushies for a week, regular diet for a week and then recheck my band. Long story short, the last 6 days have been one long binge. I can eat all the things I haven't been able to! I can eat all my feelings!
I need to start all liquids. It's so hard to starve! Knowing I can eat all the things I've craved for so long!
Can my band be saved? I was hoping to try to get pregnant late this summer. Will morning sickness cause another slip?
I am totally discouraged.
