Hi all, so I am very new to this I was banded in Adelaide on 25th June 2014 (3 days ago) by Dr Leong
Since the op I have been experiencing some strange things going on with my body (as expected) but I would just like to see if anyone else has experienced something similar post op and what you did to help it.
Okay so I was last on the list for the day so I ended up coming out of surgery around 8:30 pm Wednesday night I was basically knocked out with morphine after surgery because I was totally freaking out when i woke up (bit of a hypochondriac lol)
So the next day I was up pretty early and that's when I started to feel reaaaally awful typical stomach pain, hard to move very slow and sore I expected this but one thing didn't seem right!
Just beneath my breast in the centre of my chest I have this really tight uncomfortable feeling, nothing unbearable but still sore, I asked the dr about it the next day and he basically told me what I expected to hear....you've just had surgery, relax and let your body heal...
But since day one I have had this really unusual hiccup/burp but without the sound just my body getting the air out through my mouth and when it happens it's EXTREMELY Painful every time I drink I get it and No it's not a matter of drinking to quick or to much I have not over done it not even once
, I have been really slow and really cautious so I have no idea what this is it hurts so much when it happens even though it only lasts a few seconds it's starting to worry me.
Has anyone else experience this???? Surely I can't be the only person, and it's not just when i drink, I get it all throughout the day at completely random times my chest kinda of retracts like a hiccup and let's out air like a burp that's the only way I can explain it!!! Lol I am sorry if this doesn't make sense I have been looking online all day and haven't found anyone who has had this I just don't know what to do and feeling pretty helpless and worried about it plus my Dr has left for overseas and won't be back for two months.
Also when I did mention this to dr Leong he thought the band might be to tight and took out 1.5ml because he put fluid in the band while I was still knocked out I have yet to find out how much he put in all I know is he took 1.5ml out the day after surgery.
Swallow X-ray also showed no problems with the placement of band
If you have had anything like this please help ease my mind, sorry for the million page essay, I just have no one else to talk to.
