2007 lapbander with evening pain?

Recommended Posts

I had surgery in 07 at 243 pounds, lost 45 and since then it's been up and down/love hate bander. I'm at 255 now and can't lose even with WW. (Also have a spinal cord injury and limited on physical activity)

Last year I ended up with an ulcer from ibuprofen. Did a round of Nexium and been better since if I eat right.

A few weeks ago it started acting up so i started another round of the Nexium. It's helping during the day. But-In the evening I am having terrible pain in my stomach, and it hurts a little to walk. Also if i lay down it helps some, and by morning I'm in no pain again. (This happened the first time the ulcer was bad last year but after a couple of weeks of Nexium it went away).

My question is, has anyone experienced this?

I'm away from home for almost a month, so I can't just skip over to my family Dr or my lapband surgeon.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
