How to know if nausea and lack of restriction is band slippage?
I had band surgery with extensive hiatail hernia repair 6/17/08 and have had 5 fills since with the total of aprox. 11ccs in a 14cc band. Since my last fill (12/24/08) of 1cc I have had little or no restriction and have also been having constant nausea since. I have seen my primary dr on 12-26-08 and was told without any kind of testing that I must have a bacteria infection in my stomach and to stay on constant fluids and to take an antibiotic along with compazine( for the nausea ). He suggested that I eat toast or crackers, both of which I have not been able to eat due to the band's restriction for the past several months. I tried a piece of toast and was able to eat the whole thing and now I am even more convienced that I must have a leakage or that even something worse must be wrong. I am still feeling miserable and was told by the surgeon to wait til monday ( a whole week from today) to come in to the hospital for an esphogram with a possible adjustment but I am really concerned that something is wrong.I don't have a fever or any "real" pain other than the constant nausea and wrenching which scares me due to the huge hiatail hernia that was repaired at the time of surgery.I am I just over reacting or should I be genuinely concerned? Please help ease my mind and nerves. Thanks
