I had my band a few years ago and has no success because the port was not correctly set and turned. I was referred tohave it put right and after wait g over a year it was corrected nearly 2 years ago.
I lost a little weight but not much. Then I became seriously ill and admitted in n out of hospital lost my mobility and hardly ate so lost a bit then.
Unfortunately over the last few months I've done nothing but vomit and have constant heartburn. I realised it could be my band or my medication. So haven't taken my meds for 2 weeks.
The heartburn eased but has been replaced by a really heavy feeling on my chest all the time
IT FEELS LIKE SOMETHINGS PRESSING ON MY CHEST. FROM ABOVE RIBS TO BACK OF THROAT.
Constant belching like I'm full of gas and any burp Tec makes the chest hurt more. I can't even drink liquids juice or soup without it hurting or vomiting.
I have even thought about having the band removed.
I have a wayer contrast swallow test at the end of the month but I don't know whether i should wait that long.
THE BIG QUESTION IS WHETHER ANYONE ELSE HAS HAD ANY TROUBLE AND HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO GO TO A&E OR SUCH AND GET HELP OR RELIEF.
Thank you so much
