2 years since surgery

by Clare

I had my surgery almost 2 years ago and have not had a fill since July 2009. In the past 3 weeks I have not been able to hold down any food or liquid. I went for an upper GI and it doesn't appear that the band has slipped or anything is stuck. Any suggestions? I don't understand why I am having so many problems all of the sudden.


I'm glad to hear you had an upper GI to check things out.

Is it possible that you were simply experiencing some inflammation which made the band tighter? Or have you significantly changed the sodium content of your diet? Fluid retention can make the band feel tighter.

I'm guessing you've talked to your doctor by now...so let us know what happened!
