Surgeon Response to "When is Throwing Up After LAP-BAND Normal?"
Thank you for communicating your concern with us.
Although occasional throwing up with the lapband might be considered acceptable, what you are describing is a change in your usual relationship with the band and that is definitely not normal.
Your band is likely too tight and I would strongly urge you to see your physician and have a little bit of the fluid removed from your band. And I suggest you do this sooner than later because living with a band that is too tight can result in expansion of the pouch above the band which will lead to bigger problems down the road.
