I had lap band surgery five years ago and lost almost 100 pounds. I had been seeing different Doctors for a depression issue and unfortunately they just kept prescribing medication that ultimately caused me some very uncomfortable stomach issues.
I went to the hospital in a different state from where I had had the surgery and this Dr chose to remove all the fluid from my band 7cc.
Three months later I went back into his office at which he filled my band back up with the 7cc all at once and sent me home. The next day I returned to him as I was unable to hold anything in my stomach and lost 6 pounds within a 24hr period. He then removed 5cc leaving only 2cc in the band.
Since then I have put back on about 30 lbs and am unable to hold anything in unless it is mashed potatoes or cottage cheese.
My question is did he do something wrong by filling my band back up with the 7cc all at once? With only 2cc in there you would think that I would be able to eat just about anything. I have had a endoscopy done which shows a stricture at the band site.
Please if you could shed any light to this circumstance it would be greatly appreciated. Pending is a referral to a new Surgeon to see what will be his suggestion, but greatly concerned with why this happened.
