I will be 1 yr out this April and I'm about down 70 lbs!
One thing that has come up ( literally! ) this winter is my post nasal drip and my band. It seems as if what is happening is that the mucus/saliva is constantly dripping into my pouch, so that when I eat something of substance it drops into the pool of mucus and I cough the mucus up and I am now able to eat. It is like the food drops into the pool, sinks to the bottom and the mucus is risen up and a cough gets it up. No food comes up with the phlegm. It is NOT pb-ing, I have done this before and know the difference. It is something else totally different and just started to happen in late November, when cold season started
Has anyone else had anything like this happen? My Dr. says this is a normal occurance when dealing with the drip. My only concern is that when I cough the mucus up it will do damage to the band. My Dr says as long as I am not vomiting any food up it is fine.
I am not too tight, as this is a thing that happens only when I have too much phlegm production. when I take a claritin it dries up my phlegm and doesn't happen. I do not want to take 1 every day though....
According to my Dr once the cold weather goes away so will this problem. It's just strange though......
