I think it would be prudent to call your Doc and express clearly the extent of your discomfort and work out a plan of action(s) to resolve it.

Good luck,

Had a band for several years. Successful weight loss but later it embedded into my esophagus caused all kinds of problems. I was forced to remove it. The night cough and acid was the beginning of gerd/esophagitis. Perhaps call your team, and get a barium swallow to look at your band just to make sure you are safe from serious issues.

Please see a surgeon. Bands fail and are frequently revised to RSG Gastric Bypass. Your chest pain may be an indicator that all is not well with your lap band.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
