I had my Band fitted over ten years ago. Extremely successful in the first 18 months.

I have deep rooted psychological issues and have fought the band on and off for years. I am a little under my start weight right now.

i am quite well restricted, but am perfectly able to eat a very large meal in one sitting. Other times not so, I just walk away and eat later.

pneumonia last year, after which I began spitting up blood, usually three times a day. I had pains in so many different places, but mainly to my left side. It seems more pronounced now near my band site. The blood and pain is worsened by exertion and can last ages and be very severe. It can make me breathless even at rest.

i had an X-ray last September 2017, was told everything looked fine. I’ve had a Bronchoscopy, endoscopy, colonoscopy and CT and Ultrasound Scans. Very many blood tests and a couple of chest X-rays. Nothing found.

Has anyone had pains and spat (not coughed) up blood. If so, have you had any procedures as a result please ??

Desperate for answers.

Yikes. Any chance you have a dental issue or blood coming from a tonsil abscess or anything higher than your esophagus? Are you prone to nose bleeds? Have you been suffering sinus pressure, etc? I would show these photos to your doctor and ask for a referral to a specialist. Maybe an ENT?

Sorry you're having this problem. Please let us know what you find out. Don't let it go. Keep making noise. Show the photos to your doc.

Please consult a physician sooner rather than later. Good luck.
