I was suppose to have another fill last week, but I called and told them I didn't need a fill and scheduled a just in case appointment for 9/19. Since I didn't get a fill, you'd think I would be OK, but I'm not. I'm pretty sure that I was close too or in the "green zone" before this week, but now I'm too tight. What happened? I'm not sure, but I have been on liquid antibiotics for an infection, so maybe that's is the culprit.

I have noticed that my band just keep getting tighter and today I got stuck for the first time eating protein in a restaurant.  I actually had to make myself throw up to relieve the pressure. Yep that sucked.  I'm going to call the surgeons office tomorrow and see if I can get a slight unfill ASAP, until then I'm going to have to be careful.


  1. Is it possible that the antibiotic is momentarily causing some inflammation around your band? Or are you maybe retaining water?

    Either way, I'm proud you're getting in for an unfill right away! Great job being on top of your band health. :)

  2. YOWZA! I'm glad you are getting an unfill, that's no bueno! I go in for a fill with Karen on Thursday. I'm excited, I still haven't really felt any restriction. Hopefully I will feel some now without being too tight! :) Good luck!
