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.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
