Hey everybody, this is my first post, i just joined, i've been reading through a few dicussions and everyone seems friendly enough so i thought i'd seek some advice
I'm a 26, Male. Just got my protector type gastric band (the one with the webbing attached to stop stretching) fitted on tuesday (26th July 2016).
The first day I got out of surgery, in pain but nothing out of the ordinary, i managed to drink water and a small cup of clear soup no issues. Moving onto day 2 and 3 (today) I can barely keep down fluid, my stomach tightens up and i keep bringing up a lot of foamy saliva/water, i managed to keep down about 200-300ml of water over the course of the day but i feel like i should be able to keep down more.
Is this normal/has anyone had experience of this. Most posts about this i've read only seem to mention similar things happening months down the line not right after surgery. I'll be trying to contact support team tomorrow to be safe, just thought this might be more helpful initially
