Tell me about your slipped band. How do you think it happened? Did you have surgery right away or did you wait to see if it would slip back into place? How was recovery for the revision vs the band placement?

My band is slipped, and has been for 6 weeks. I go for another follow up appt. Monday to see by fluoroscope if it's slipping back. I think my band slipped from frequent vomiting in the spring/summer when my allergies were awful and my stomach would get gunked/plugged up by post nasal drip, my NP thinks so too. I am (of course!) hoping it'll go back in place w/out surgery.

My Dr. seems to think it was caused by the hernia. The band was irritating the hernia and attributed to my reflux which caused me to vomit, therfore, causing the slip. I had the band completely unfilled a couple of times, took Prevacid, etc.... Then it started all over again each time I started to be filled. I have a 10cc band, and only had 2cc's in when it started over and one day I just started throwing up everything including liquids. Went in the next day for a barium swallow which showed the slip and the hernia, had the hernia repaired and the band repositioned the next day and haven't experienced any problems since. Only it's taken much longer to get to a true level of restriction this time.

I'm wishing you well and hope things work out for the best. Now if I could just remember my password for the ticker, I'd add my miles walked. lol

I was seen by my doctor yesterday and he said the band is still slipped and there is a hernia, too. My band is totally empty for the past 3 weeks. I take pecid 2X daily plus TUMS as needed. My repair surgery is scheduled for 12-8-11. I understand taking your time with fills after your repair. I will be extremely cautious about my future fills and will express this to my doctor and NP! I wish the repair could happen sooner but I will hang in there until I can have it. I still feel restriction so at least I am not gaining weight during this time of discomfort, lol.

FOUR miles today! I can't believe I did it! I totally pushed myself, and my feet are screaming, but the payoff is so worth it!

I just might have to do it again tomorrow :)

Happy walking, everyone!

I know I am really late, but would love to join if you all will have me. I know I will most likely not acheive the 60 miles, due to my schedule but I want to still participate in the challenge. The only time I will have time to walk is on the weekends, currently I do zumba late evening at home during the week. So I will walk as much as I can on the weekends. I did walk this past Sunday at the park while my boys played........4 miles.

You will definitely not be the last! I did a 5K about 8 weeks after surgery and had a pretty respectable time. I've never run in my life. I walked a lot with a little jogging in between. But I did it! That's the important thing. I'll be doing it again in February and don't even care if I run/jog at all. My fitness has improved this year, but my knees still hurt like crazy if I run, so I just walk a lot.

GO FOR IT!!!!!

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
