Stretched stomach and possible band slip...

Oct 07, 2009

I went to see my PA yesterday and it was a lesson in listening to what my body is saying to me.  I knew there was something wrong.  Not being able to eat much for the past month and really abd heartburn daily.  I went in there and had lost 12 lbs and she was so happy and she said, you don't look very happy today and I said thats because I think somethings wrong and she said, noo there's nothing wrong...then she looked at my band under flouro...and her face fell.

We could see a bubble, which was my stomach and my band in the wrong position.  She said it could just be in the wrong position because my stretched stomach is pushing it down.  She completely unfilled me and we're waiting 4-6 weeks to see if it corrects itself.  I am so scared that I'm going to gain weight and scared that its not going to fix itself.  18 months and I'm only halfway there...I'm not ready for this to be over.
