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.

Hey Kristin, I just sent you an email with my phone numbers. Call me! Hopefully you will be dine but it's good to know that there are options if you need to have your band removed.

Kristin- I hope everything is ok. I had a complete unfill early on and I was a mess. Everything was ok and I hope the same happens for you. I would definitely look at the sleeve as an option if I lost my band too.
