New research on how the band works



Recommended Posts

Given how much my stomach growls and roils and rumbles throughout the day since banding, Jacqui's comments about food passing up and down through the band all day makes sense. I don't remember my system ever being this loud before, and since I'm eating way less than before, I couldn't figure out why there was so much going on. Must be a quantity of food thing.

And the incredible, long, loud, deep belches? OMG!!! Jeez, sometimes I feel like I should be a trucker or something. LOL! :)

Yes, Dave that was so embarrassing to get used to this! I still have to hold my stomach to get it to quiet down, especially it wants to do this in church. Karen

Yep! I reay try to eat 3 meals and 1 larger snack. It works for me. If I get really hungry between meals I might have a small piece of fruit or a spoonfulof trail mix-but I look at the clock and say I can wait until __ time. On the weekends I try to delay my Breakfast as much as possible. I enjoy reading the paper and having coffee.< /p>

Thanks, NJgirl. Breaking the grazing habit is just one more thing for me to work on so the 3 meals and 3 Snacks is how I got this way inthe first place !

Well, spare a thought for me with an ileostomy too! Not only do I have large, loud lapband rumbles, but also my stoma works noisily too. Naturally, I dont fart - not becuase I'm a lady but because the air exits my stoma and doesnt make it to the rear end. The disadvantage of this is a stoma has no muscles, so when it comes out, it just comes out - sometimes VERY loudly and people think I've farted. Naturally too, since what I eat exits my digestive system only half way though, its very liquid - so sometimes it sounds like someone's turned the garden hose on! Sometimes i can pass off the noises as tummy rumbles and other times, I have to try to explain what it is. Its hideously embarrassing and happens anywhere quiet - getting an eyebrow wax, having a massage, in the cinema, in the bank queue, sigh. A little over three weeks to go now before its closed though, lol.

I did read on a nutrition website newsletter that I get that the food bounces three or four times before going through which sounds the same as what Prof o Brien explained to your DH. Interesting that I did not get a more educated answer from Allergan when they called me after I put the same question to them.

I don't think that most people thought the food was sitting in"the pouch " for hours but did believe that the process was fairly slow. Which was one of the reasons given for not drinking for 30 - 60 minutes after a meal. It would be interesting to know how long this process does take and what effect if any drinking soon after eating has.

Thanks for this! I jut got banded last week and this helps me understand better. I also was wondering about what Elcee brought up. Is the 30/30 rule really practical, or at least the post meal aspect if the food is transiting back and forth?

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
