Please be careful

Jun 13, 2010

Hi everyone,

i havent been on her for a little while,ive  not felt too good.
My story could happen to any of us with a Lap Band.  Last week following eating a meal i became unwell, firstly i thought i had something stuck (chicken) which is now completely off the menu. I began to vomit and vomit unable to keep any fluids down. I then developed  diarrhoea, i persevered with this as i thought it was just a bug and would pass.  2 days later i had to go the the local accident and emergency department as i was so dehydrated.  the rehydrated me and let me go because i had managed to get an appointment with my Surgeon, (i knew something was wrong).  When i saw him he knew what had happened, i had vomitted so much that i had herniated my stomach back up through my band and it had become stuck and swollen.  My surgeon has fully deflaed my band and it has to remain that way for 2 weeks , and then i will be reassesed.

Please be careful eating, and if you have a bug be vigilant, it was an awful experience, one which i hope never happens again..
