Total restriction (suddenly)?



Recommended Posts

Cocoabean, my doctor didn't do an upper GI- I actually didnt wnat to pay for one. It was an emergency visit and they were going to charge me $700, so I just asked to have my band totally drained to see if that would solved the problem and IT DID! The band did not slip after all, it was my nerves shutting down my stomach and not allowing me to eat, creating total restriction.

Yikes to the $700.00! Thanks for the clarification. Just wanted to be certain that the fact that you can now swallow after the unfill means that you were not slipped (I know that is what you indicated above) for my own knowledge, as I post here quite a bit, and want to be able to help other folk.

I am glad your stomach is feeling better, sorry it cost $300 as it was. I can understand the stress.

I do wish you all the best for your upcoming surgery. Will you undergo chemo after that, or is that yet to be determined?

Removal of all Fluid is half the treatment for a minor slip anyways. I think the other half is to go on liquids.. not sure, haven't been there and hope I don't.

I understand the stress of cancer.. btdt. Hope you have excellent results.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
