Am I weird if I don't have fills?



Recommended Posts

Does any one have that constant restriction around their voice box/throat and is contantly feeling like throwing up or is throwing up after meals?

I had 4.5ml put in my first fill and suffered for 5 weeks with not eating or drinking much before I had 2ml removed. but I feel I may need all of it removed. I again can't eat much without that constant nausea feeling, funny noises in my throat and the throwing up. A couple of weeks ago I was so thirsty that I drank 600ml of Water to quickly on an empty stomoch and threw it up while driving in my work 4WD about 1/2 later. GROSS. I dont eat at all during the day now other than a biccky or two but even thats hard to swallow without the orchestra. I am requesting the doc take out all the Fluid in a couple of weeks at my next appointmnet but I feel that I should have some in. I cant handle this anymore with the not eating... I'm tired, hungry, grumpy, embarrased by throat noises and tummy rumbles in meetings. I feel like I made a big mistake but the only win is that I am now 111kg.

Am I weird not to have any fill at all?

Has anyone got any ideas.

:):help::hungry:

your doctor mat have given you too much of an aggressive fill for you to handle... go try to make an appt with him sooner to have some taken out ... or all and start over again with smaller fills... 4.5 in one fill is a lot the ost i got was 3.2 and i was miserable...

You really should reach that sweet spot with taking smaller fills.

Things will get better... I promise;)

Don't wait two weeks! Being too tight can cause slippage or band errosion. I don't understand why a doc would put in THAT much fill at one time there is serious risk to being overfilled for a prolonged period of time.

Hi everyone thanks for your replies

I didnt wait 2 weeks to see the doc as I was feeelinbg really unwell. So I flew down to Perth on Sunday night and after a barium swallow/x-ray it showed that not only was I having contractions in my oesphagus( causing the bad nausea and reflux) but the band had slipped as well. No pain thou, very weird. Thanks for your replies.
