    Hi all, I landed up going to emergency. Got two bags of fluid in via IV and had some fluid out of the band.

    Hi all,

    It took much longer than I expected thanks to it being a non-emergency. I was secretly dehydrated and got two bags of saline. The doctor on duty had a hard time getting the needle in the port and in the end they called a surgeon to do it. Lucky for me the surgeon on duty is one who also works at the practice where I had my band done. Once I saw him and had some fluid out it was all smooth sailing.

    I'm glad to be home. I've had some soup to eat and loads of water to drink.

    Thanks for all your support!

    I had a bad block earlier this week resulting in me not being able to get anything other than liquids in. I thought things were getting better yesterday but woke up this morning not even able to get water in. Normally I'd go see my surgeon and get some liquid out of the band but their surgery is closed over a weekend and I'm flying interstate on business on Monday.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?

    Oh man, thats sucky. Have a bit of a reasearch about your option to see if there is any way to turn it wihtout major surgery. And keep your chin up. I know another complication can be demotivating but keep your eye on the horizon, you will get there if you push on.

    See how you go in a couple of days but I reckon if it hurts with each mouthful you may need to get a little bit out. 
     
    I battle with coffee every morning as the band tends to be tighter but by 10 am that has usually passed.
     
    Hang in there, it will be okay. Maybe give your clinic a call and see what they suggest.
