Band tightening up



Recommended Posts

I dnt know if any of you ever experience your band tightening up till the point you can't eat or drink anything!! I'd taken a sinus pill and now I can't eat or drink nothing. Any of you have any suggestions that may have worked for you so I dnt have to go the whole weekend without eating or drinking anything!!! My Dr. Office is closed until Monday!!!

Are you stuck on something? If you are stuck then you may need to go and get an unfill.

If it is just acting up try a warm drink, this often helps to relax things. The other thing that can help is sucking on crushed ice, this helps to sooth and reduce inflammation.

Hope you're feeling better and sorry so long to respond but yes, I recently also took a sinus tablet the size of a horse pill! As soon as I put it in my mouth, I said to myself.. "I shouldn't be taking a pill this big", but too late. By lunch, I knew it was stuck. Like emcee above mentioned, warm coffee helped but I actually had to drink a glass of wine to move it along. I think it just relaxed everything in there. Good luck!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
