Having Trouble With Slime And Burping


15 posts in this topic

Hello Ladies, and Gentlemen, I am in need of some suggestions. I was banded 3/1/2009, I have had 2 fills and was great...I havent had a fill in over a year...Well something has happened and I am having terrible reflux at night, to the point I am waking up gagging and choking from throwing up, and have to rush to the bathroom and here comes the Slime....During the day i cannot eat or drink without feeling the need to burp and alot of slime coming up....I am not sure if medication i have been on is affecting my band...I just had knee surgery this morning and have been on pain medication for about 12 weeks...What home remedy do yall suggest until I can get into the Doctor....With all of this do yall suggest a small amount taken out...I not sure what to do, any thoughts and suggestions are welcome...Didnt expect any trouble after all this time and everything was fine....

Call your doctor. The symptoms you describe sound like your band has slipped. Please call your doctor asap and get it checked.

I agree that u should call your surgeon to make sure that everything is ok. It could very well be the pain meds or the result of the surgery u just had, i had never had an episode of reflux till i had my plastic surgery, and i eventually had to take some gaviscon, or whatever the US equivalent is, that worked a treat till i was eating more normally. It does sound like it is more linked to your surgery but u do need to discuss with your lapband surgeon to make sure everything is ok .. good luck.

I just saw my surgeon today. He is taking 1/2 - 1 cc out in 3 weeks the day before myhysterectomy. Then he said he would put it back in about 2 weeks after surgery. The symptoms you describe are what he said we wanted to avoid. Call your LB doc! Good luck.

Have you been lying down a lot with your surgery? I know that this affects my band. Also medications that have kept me groggy, one being percocet that I took for cramps a couple of months ago. Majorly made my band feel tighter, slimed a lot but I was lying down off and on for three days. Definitely have it checked with your doctor. Good luck and let us know his it goes.

Thanks for the response's....I have been having these troubles for about a month, woke up suddenly and scared one night throwing up in my sleep, while doing some research this is considered sliming..I think..Well it has been progressively gotten worse, maybe the surgery will make it worse, but I am gonna beg and plead to get in at the Doc's tomorrow...I will keep everyone updated...

glad to hear you are trying to get into your dr's as a matter of priority. Ongoing reflux as you describe can also damage your oesophagus.

i was having the same issue, nauseous, wanting to throw up and only slime will come up, waking up wanting to throw up and nothing! I called the doctor he asked what meds I was taking and I had just started the pill 3 weeks before he told me to stop to see how I felt and at the second day I was feeling so much better so I stop taking it completely. Good luck

I agree, this sounds a lot like a slip. Sorry, but call surgeon's ofc ASAP!

Yes call your dr ASAP! My symptoms were similar but didn't have a slip- band was just too tight. Tiny unfill & back in the zone. It can happen out of the blue. Good luck.
