I Tossed My Cookies!

I was eating dinner tonight and got tight all the sudden, which has happened before, but this time I just suddenly got queasy and knew that things were not going to stay down. It was just potatoes and chicken, nothing out of the ordinary, but man it didn't want to stay down. So all the sudden I grabbed the only thing near me, which happened to be a bowl and I barfed my supper back up. That was not pleasant. Now I am a little freaked out about how much force it would take vomiting to make your band slip. I'm sure it's fine, but it's just a little weird. I don't know why it didn't want to stay down.

I have a band adjustment appointment on Monday, now I am second guessing what to do. I think I am ready for an adjustment, but an episode like the one I had tonight makes me thing I don't want to be too tight. Guess I will have to have a good conversation with the staff at the doc's office and make the decision from there.


  1. Oh Lord, I am getting banded on Monday and the thing that scares me the most is the getting stuck! Sorry you got sick...bummer.

  2. Don't worry Miss Vickie, I've been banded for about 5 months and this is the first real negative I have encountered. And honestly it passed and now I am fine. I will take an occaisional bump in the road for the freedom I am am gaining by getting rid of my fat suit! :) Good luck with your surgery!

  3. I occassionaly get that feeling and actually vomit instead of just PB'ing...not sure why? It's an awful feeling to get but am fine once I have got rid of it...5 months in should be OK on the band for a once off...
