Lap band and swallowing meds



Recommended Posts

This morning, 12 hours ago, I swallowed my morning supplements and they got stuck. It took all day for them to go down. I was foaming and vomiting that up and it was painful. The pain has subsided and I am no longer foaming but still can’t eat. I am drinking hot broth and that’s ok, but even that take a few minutes to pass through my lap band. Can I possibly be swelled inside from all of the irritation? Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The best thing for swelling when or after you have been stuck is sucking on crushed ice. It helps to reduce the swelling

I like warm tea. A heating pad could be in your future also.
