Hi All 2 weeks ago I had to go in for a laparoscopy to sort out some adhesions (from a few abdominal surgeries) and endometriosis. When I went to see the Anaethetist, he told me I had to have all the fluid removed from my band. When I told him I was taking Nexium and having really bad reflux, he was even more adamant and explained to me that if I had any undigested food hanging around and it went into my lungs, I would die. At first when he told me I had to have all fluid removed I went into a flat panic. What would I do? How am I going to manage? I am going to get fat again. Never mind the fact that the reflux has been so bad, I was having night coughs and if I ate too late, I would even wake up sometimes and almost vomit in bed. Anyway, I had all fill removed and OMG, it is amazing. No reflux, no heartburn, no night coughs, no PB's, NOTHING. And on top of that I am still eating the same amount of food, not getting hungry and I can eat healthy stuff that was difficult to digest before eg. proteins like red meat, chicken as well as salads. I am going to see if I can maintain my weight with an empty band and if I can, I will leave it that way. I only have about 6 - 8 kgs to go so I am not too stressed. I have to exercise more and then I am sure those last kgs will start shifting. Hope everyone is travelling well on their weight loss journeys.
