Throwing up gray gelatin like substance PLZ HELP!



Recommended Posts

I have had my lap band for 14 months now and I love my band but recently it has felt extremely tight and I wast sure why, I was going to be going in for a reduction in Fluid and then tonight before I could make my appt. I started throwing up this gray Gelatin substance. it feels so awful coming up and then when it put in between my fingers I am able to smash it. I dont know what it is and am worried. If any one has had this please help. I am going to go for an upper GI this weekend if I can get an ER to do it. Since throwing up some of it I have been able to get Water down easier, but I can still feel pieces of it. Its awful, any suggestions on what it could be would help thanks, also I did not eat anything like this substance before this started happening.

Do you have allergy problems? It really sounds like mucus buildup, commonly associated with allergies.

It's definitely something to call the doctor about.

I have had a lot allergies problems with this weather, but it is not like mucus, it is a semi hard feeling and then i can smash it.

I did call him and he says he is not sure and has never heard of anything like it which is why he wants an upper gi done, but I cant find a er place that will do it... :(

If your doctor wants an upper GI done, then why doesn't he just call the order for it into the hospital?

I am going to call him tomorrow and see what else we can do cause the hospitals are saying there is no one on staff to be able to get one done. I am in Barstow and he usually works with the hospitals in the riverside area.

Wow thats strange! Doesn't look like mucus though so it's a good thing you saved some to show docs. they should test it. I hope all goes well and please keep us updated!

Sounds like mucous, probably similar to the thick stuff that comes out of your nose. Sooner you get into see the Dr and get the tests done the better.

Thank u everyone for ur amazing post and support!!

Sorry for the delayed reply... I found out shortly after this post that we r pregnant with our first baby and have had a lot of complications... Here is the update. I could not get my band checked due to being pregnant, but everything seems to be working as normal. Because I was pregnant when I went into see my band doc, he took out .25 Fluid so I could eat a bit more. Since this incident things have been smooth sailing.

Thank u again!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
