    Chemotherapy And The Lapband

    My name is Debbie. I'm undergoing chemo for Hodgkins lymphoma. 12 years ago I had lap band surgery and lost almost 100 lbs. I have not had a fill in 9 years. The pain I'm experiencing in my stomach after each chemo session is almost unbareable! And I'm convinced it is due to the lap band. I want it removed but can't afford the cost. I'm almost considering stopping cancer treatment . I haven't been able to work in a month. Desperate for any suggestions. Betelnut, I hope and pray you are cancer free now. How did the rest of your chemo treatments go with the lap band?

    Chemotherapy And The Lapband

    My name is Debbie. I have Hodgkins Lymphoma. 9 days ago I went thru my first round of chemo. It was brutal! I have this burning lava fire ball in the center of my chest just below the sternum. My oncologist thinks it's just bad acid reflux. I threw up violently a few times the 2nd day after chemo. I'm worried I've ripped or dislodged my lap band!!!! I've never experienced such awful pain with no let up. I don't know what to do. Has any one gone thru chemo with a lap band?
