Thank You!

Thank you to all the ladies who commented on my blog yesterday and advised me to call my Dr. I called yesterday and got in first thing this morning for an unfill. I so loved the weight loss but the acid reflux wasn't worth it. They took .50cc's out, exactly what they put in 3 1/2 weeks ago (Dang!) She said that the cold had made my insides swell so she wants me to take Pepcid for a few days, stay on liquids for 3 days then mushies for 3 days. Kind of severe don't you think? Then I can come back Feb 24 and have a small fill if I feel like I need it. It will be my last visit prepaid from a year ago.
It will be interesting to see how this all turns out. Before I got the last fill I was hungry all the time. The PA say's I am not the same band wise as I was back during the first of Jan.

I'll keep you posted!!

I am glad you are feeling better. I agree, the weightloss is great but not worth it if you have to have the reflux with it. Maybe all you'll need is 1/2 of what they took out when you go back.

So glad you are feeling better. Acid reflux is terrible. Don't worry about an unfill. It is worth it to get back on track. It takes a few weeks for the band and stomach swelling go down. I always waited at least a month before I went back for a fill. It sucks but it's needed.

Just checking in to see how you're feeling now. I hope the reflux damage has healed (it took mine weeks the first go-round). And I hope the hunger hasn't returned (at least that post-unfill diet was probably good for WL...pretty severe indeed!). Take it easy on that next fill (I'm glad I didn't get my whole 1cc back last fill). We see so many people where a tiny bit can make a huge difference. Be well GF!
