I had a Lap-Band inserted in 2008 and lost 30kg. I learned the hard way which foods I could and couldn’t eat. My kids’ friends thought I was bulimic.
I had all the fluid taken out of my band recently as I was having so much trouble eating so many solid foods. I thought I could keep my weight down because I knew how much to eat, as in portion control and the right foods.
Now, with all the fluid out I am still having trouble keeping food down. I eat slowly. I chew my food well.
I don’t know what else to do. I live remotely so seeing a bariatric surgeon is a big deal. I’ve got myself back on a liquid diet but I get very bad GERD that even the medication prescribed doesn’t always work.
I feel washed out. I sleep sitting up with a heat pack on my belly which is the only thing to give me any comfort.
HELP! Thank you.
