I have been banded for 6 months. I am doing really well with the band. I had my last fill 3weeks ago. Everything was fine until I woke up this morning with the feeling like something is stuck in my throat. I can eat and drink but that feeling will not go away.

Any advice out there?

If it persists call your surgeon! Good luck!

Thats strange. Is it causing you pain or making you nauseous? If so, you should definitely call your doctor (or maybe just all anyways to be safe). Good luck!

The only time I've read that someone has had that feeling of something stuck in their throat when they haven't eaten is right after their band surgery. Like the others said, I would call the doctor. Maybe it's nothing, or it could be a signal that your band is a little tight.

Hi my name is Judy they call me sweetjudy, why I don't know... Any way i had lapband done in late July this yr. This is my third fill and I am having a very hard time... I can not eat anythink two bites if... I think it is also a mind game, I know when I use to eat and what I could now it is so hard... I only lost 11 pounds and when I went back for my third fill I gained 5 ozs. I was so upset... I can use all the help and support I can get.:) I thought by now I would be at least 25 pounds down... What am I doing wrong.. What do you all eat and how often. Help!:confused:

Hi Judy. Welcome to LBT.

When did you get your last fill? If it's been longer than a week or two, you're too tight since you can only eat two bites of food. Are you eating soft foods? They often have more calories and don't give long lasting satiety.
