I delivered 6 weeks early a 5lb 15oz lil boy:) After spending 2 months on bed rest in the hospital and Mason spending 11 days in the NICU, we're both home and doing great! Mason is getting bigger and gaining weight like he should. Now it's my turn to lose this weight! It's tough to get back on the band wagon...I CAN do this!
If you are eating slowly and chewing well you are most likely over-filling your pouch and food is backing up into your esophogus. IMO that's what a PB is. It's food that never made it into your pouch becuase there's no stomach acid involved. Sliming happens when you eat something too large or too dry and your body is signalling that you need help swallowing and sends that lovely thick mucous to try to help the offending food go down.
Throwing up is not that far from Pbing but is more violent and you retch rather than simply "regurgitate" chewed food.
That's how I define it anyway.
Regardless, if you are Pbing daily, go see your doc. I was scolded for waiting 5 days. My surgeon says if you PB one time or get stuck one time you should call. I've never done that but it made me realize that I wasn't taking a stuck episode or PB serious enough. It's NOT something that should happen with any regularity. It should be a RARE exception!
Caution to all!
Highest 290, Banded - 248 Lowest 139 (too thin!). Comfort zone 155-165.
Happily banded since May 2006. Regain of 28lbs 2013-14. ALL GONE!
But some has returned! Up to 175, argh! Off we go again,
Just got my 3rd fill and have excellent restriction but I'm able to eat a leg quarter (baked) one day and the next I'm thowing up, PBing, and sliming for 30 minutes off a chicken leg(baked). Its a weird experience bc you can eat something one day and the next you can't. So, I'm gonna stay away from baked chicken and try it boiled for a while.
