My wife has had the lap band since approx. 2008. She has been in the hospital (2010) once for an ulcer and severe acid reflux (band way too tight). The doctor loosened the band, etc. Prior to this 3-4 day hospital stay, she drank alcohol (night time leisurely), smoked cigarettes, and basically didn’t follow the eating rules, thus vomiting almost after every meal.
Since her visit above, she has followed eating rules a bit better on the loosened band, but eating more frequently and too fast. Three nights ago she vomited some blood during the night and she has had a bad pain since. The pain is located (while facing her front) approx. 2-3 inches to the left of her port.
She says there is something internally wrong and is very worrying. She works full time and I am laid off at this time. We do not have medical insurance.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
