Anyone Else Have Nighttime Reflux Coughing Or Vomitting?



Recommended Posts

I’m off to see the doc in July about this ... I hope solution is not another surgery - I can’t afford it ! Maybe an un fill will solve this . My original surgeon said the band may naturally tighten by itself over the years so maybe that’s what’s happened . Time will tell
Hoping for the best for you. Let's know what next for you!

I just went to the doc for this today! Got a complete unfill, waiting to see if symptoms resolve. I'm hoping so because Ido not want to do another surgery..... [emoji44]

Yes --- and I revised from Realize Band (6/2009) to a VSG 8 weeks ago.

I was surprised because 10 years ago I was self-pay for the band --- and I have been saving money in my HSA because I feared that it would have to come out one day and I would be self pay again.

My surgeon submitted the insurance request based on my reflux and the damage that had been done to my esophagus -- not necessarily for remediation of obesity --- and I got approved for the removal/revision within a week.

So I finally saw my surgeon yesterday . He said what I explained were classic symptoms of a over tight band - it can self tighten over the 4 years since my last fill . My band had 8 mil in he’s reduced to 4 and we will build up over time to maybe 6.5 or 7 as 8 is too much for me ! Results ? Fantastic , no reflux no coughing no vomiting more sleep - a success at £200 gbp

I had this problem for a year and it was pretty severe . Most foods bounced back with slime . Even Water could only be taken by sipping . Eventually had an infill , 4 m taken out of an 8 m fill = instant relief , no acid no vomit no night cough etc etc full nights sleep BUT , 10 pounds gain - eating everything in sight 😡

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
