Can't Eat

by Elena

Hello, I had my 3rd adjustment a month ago. I lost 8lb in first week after the adjustment.

Now I hardly can eat anything, because I am throwing up. I stopped enjoying food and still don't lose anything. Is there something wrong? Also, I keep having pain where my band is. Please help. Thank you.

Persistent vomiting can be due to a few things:

  • Taking bites that are too large and/or not chewing your food well enough.

  • Eating too fast and/or overeating.

  • The gastric band is too tight.

Review HOW to eat here. If that's not the problem, I suggest seeing your surgeon again to have some of the fill let out, and to discuss the pain you're experiencing.
