    Lap Band Advice? Slipped?

    the frosted mini wheats were my last meal yesterday at 10am... only liquids since... even they hurt... tried broth little bit ago... didnt go well..
  4. So yesterday morning (saturday) I was eating some frosted mini wheats. For some reason they kind of got stuck and i PBed to try to get them up and suddenly had bad upper left Abd pain..very tender to touch... I work in an er so i went to work, struggled all day with heartburn and pain. unable to really drink or eat anything... I worked my shift and went home to attempt to just go to bed and the heartburn just got unbearable so i went back to work and was seen in the ER.. They did a CT and gave me fluids and pain meds and a GI cocktail, nothing helped for the pain or heartburn... They said everything was normal (CT and labs) they spoke with my surgeons partner who said I just need to get some Fluid taken out and send me home, and have me follow up tomorrow AM with them . I have been banded for 2 years; March 2010. I have had only 2 fills.. one like august 10 and one june 11... They sent me home in alot of pain (vitals high too because of the pain i am in, hr 112 bp 182/110) Still in unbearable pain(worse with eating or drinking,) with heartburn. I just dont get it.. i have had NO problems with my lapband and the one time i do, i feel like no one is listening.. LC
  5. Is is possible for you never to feel full? and always be hungry? i have been banded for 2 years and i am still hungry all the time.. I drink my water as supposed... I dont drink during meals.. I had lost almost 100 lbs by pure hardwork and calorie watching... I have slowly gained 70lbs back.. I have an appt this thursday at my band doc... I have tightness in my band... I eat slow and feel pressure but It seems to past quickly..

    Pcos.. Symptoms?

    Can someone tell me what your symptoms of PCOS are? Everyone at work says i need to get tested for it (work in ER ).. in the past 6months months i have gained weight, hair in falling out, tired all the time (have sleep apnea which is well controlled with CPAP), irregular periods,headaches and super dry skin... Doc has checked thyroid multiple times with other labs and "everything is normal" per them... Something isnt "normal" Thanks!

  12. So I was banded almost 2 years ago (March 18, 2010). At the time i already knew i had sleep apnea.. Fast forward, First year i went from 302lb to 218lbs and felt like I was sleeping better, stopped using my BiPAP.. Here recently since gaining about 40lbs back I have been feeling very tired again so My PCP asked me to get another sleep study... I FAILED Badly, I had twice as much apnea periods.. Feel like a big failure... I have made great stride in the last 2 years, Off my BP meds, no pre-diabetic, running 3-4 times a week, ran a half marathon, training for another one now... Trying not to be depressed but its hard.. I dont want to wear a mask to sleep every night.. LC
