Acid reflux and band fills

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm wondering if anyone can give me advice. I've had two bands fitted over the last 10 years. First one came undone after 3.5 years. I did get to a good weight but suffered with chest pains and reflux acid. When it came undone all the symptoms stopped. After 2 years without the band and gaining a couple of stone I had it repaired. I now have 5.5 ml in a 10 ml band. I'm still 18 pounds over weight but I have stayed the same for over a year. However my acid reflux is really bad. I'm considering having all Fluid taking out but the nurse who I have just spoke to says do it slowly it might just be to tight. She gets paid £100 every time so this was an answer I expected. Has anyone else come across this problem? I can't stand to be so uncomfortable especially as the weight loss this time hasnt been very successful. I do know my weight will go up though. Any advice I would be grateful!
