Complete Unfill......Upper GI in the AM!
Well this morning I woke up with the Golf Ball again and it progressively got worse until right after lunch I was actually in pain. I called the surgeon and they had me come right in, and unfilled my band.
I am scheduled for an Upper GI at 10:30 am. Nothing to eat or drink after 10pm tonight.
The PA is who saw me, unfilled me. She told me that it sounds like I might have a pouch dilation. She said we would wait a couple of weeks allowing the band to rest and then begin a slow refill. That of course depends on what they see under fluro tomorrow.
I was very upset, and still am. I do not want to lose my band. I know others have been right here where I am. So I do not want to whine. But damnit this sucks.
I am praying that this all works out, and I do not need surgery. I am very prepared though to do revision to sleeve if the band fails. I do not want to be without any help in this journey I am on.
Angela or Jen or Jacquie if you read this, or anyone else who has lost their band please contact me as I have so many questions.
