Hi, It's been a long time!  I am having a odd problem,  I can keep food down no sticking or slime,  the wierd thing... I feel like I have a golf ball in my throat.  Anyone have this?  I have an appt. with my dr on Tuesday.  Not sure if it is a band issue or a throat thing.

 It's most likely that you're a bit too tight...good thing you're going to the doctor.  Good luck, hope it's just a fluke!

I know the feeling you are talking about.  I hadn't had a fill in a year when I started feeling it.  Than I started getting stuck and slimming.  I went in and got 1cc out.  The feeling is gone and I'm not getting stuck or slimming anymore.  But, I still have this burning in the back of my throat to some food some times.

Thanks for the replies? Will see what the Dr has to say, I am kind of leaning to the problem being allergies but don't want to take chance.

It's the band!  Sounds like your esophagus is not able to work properly either with your fill or with the band period.  Please have your doc check for esophageal dilation - this is definitely one of the symptoms.  Motility issues!

 Due to a family emergency I didn't make it to th dr.  I'll have to make a new appt for next week.  I don't feel bad and as I said in my first post I am not having any trouble keeping food down so that is good.  But I will follow up on this!
