So, I was looking at one the posts on LBT with before-and-afters and I found this girls blog. She was looking good these days (It had been about 18 months since she was banded I think), but...after reading some more I found out that she had to have a complete unfill about a month ago bc when she went in for a fill, they put her under Fluro for the first time and saw that her pouch was very irritated. They asked her if she had been throwing up. She said no, but turns out that throwing up for her was a daily thing, and happened 3-4 times a day. I dont know why she never went back to her doctor to loosen up.
I would guess bc she was losing weight and loss sight of that fact she could be screwing her band up big time.
So, they gave her a complete unfill. In a month she has gained 25 pounds.
As I read her older posts, other things were alarming. She still drinks diet pop (soda). She throws up bc she eats too much and too fast, but doesnt change that behavior.
I know we all have issues with food. I just find it alarming when people totally ignore the rules and risk pissing off this little tool!
So, I will learn from that blog and make sure I am listening to my body and Tina.
