No issues ... until now- nausea!



Recommended Posts

Hi

I have had my band for about 5-6 years and it’s been great. I never had an issue until I had to remove cc’s Due to pregnancy. Now, more than 2.5 years on from giving birth and having refilled the band slowly over this time I am having an issue.

For the past week or so I have been extremely nauseas. I saw a gp today as I live in a small country town and my specialist is 1600kms away in the city. The Gp has filled my band for me before with no issues. I asked if removing cc’s Would assist in making me feel better and he said yes. So we took 1full cc out. I am still so nauseas.

Has anyone else had this? If so- how long until you felt better? I’m worried I’ve had a slippage.... but the gp didn’t believe so.

Thanks

Hi there

I had a band for years and we had to play with it for a long time but over or underfilling, a slippage, reflux, a breakage, an abscess - none of it made me nauseous. The slippage hurt, made me cough. It felt - dull pain.

I wonder if it is something unconnected to the band? A bug, maybe. (Pregnancy springs to mind? None of my business of course but...)

I reckon check out all the other options? Are you eating ok, swallowing ok?

I was thinking the same thing. I did not have the band, but those seem to be the signs of pregnancy again. It could just be coincidence that it happened around the same time as the band filling. Wont hurt to get checked out :)
