My dreams come true!
The band is going away hooray! I ended up in the hospital Mon. with chest pains and a rapid heart beat. Turns out I have some heart issues and also the food keeps feeling like it is backing up in my throat. So hubby said the band's gotta go even if we have to pay for it but hoping insurance will cover at least part of the removal cost or we'll pay as we can.
My only fears are my lungs are pretty bad so I'm using a spirometer to build them up as much as I can before surgery. So say a prayer for me and whoop whoop the band is dead!

Congrats Karen!!! The food backing up does cause cardiac problems...I'm on a new medication to try to control my heart rhythm, even with the band gone. The electro physiologist says that if the scar tissue and damage from my band are causing it, catheterization is useless. Let's hope this resolves your issues. Be strong friend!!!
Thanks Steph I was wondering if they were related. I think this has been going on since last summer but didn't realize what it was, thought I pulled a muscle in my gut. Now I realize it was the beginning of band problems. I just pray this solves it cause I can't imagine living with the backed up throat feeling the rest of my life, it's horrid!
