Laura, So sorry for your results. I do see a silver lining...your band has not slipped!! That's good news. The few times that my band was too tight was miserable! I never want to throw up like that and have the throat pain that I had. (All causing my band to slip.) Good luck! This, too, shall pass!!

Hugs and Aloha~

Thanks everyone for all of the comments and well wishes. I know I am not the only one on here that has esophigitis. I think Alan had it last year and someone else just had it a few months ago. If I am not mistaken Alan said he had to have his band completely unfilled until it healed. I guess I should take the EGD results to my fill doctor and let him decide what needs to be done. I will call them today. I know I will get through this. It is just a little hiccup in my progress just like the whole year has been.

So sorry to hear of your medical troubles Laura. At least now you know what you're dealing with and it can be fixed. You have been so very sucessful with the band, I know you'll be fine. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't know when hiatal hernias need attention, but I'm under the impression that they're noit "removed" the way muscle hernias (or whatever they're called) are. In talking with my surgeon way back, I understood it to mean that the stomach moves up onto the esophagus. The repair is along the lines of pulling the stomach back down into its normal position. I'm sure other team members will know better than I do. Perhaps you're one of them and I have absolutely no clue.

The main thing is that you not let yourself feel any more discouraged than you do at this moment and that you see the positive side of knowing the situation.

Thanks for the encouragement. I have already gained 40 pounds with the band so I know I am really going to have to watch what I eat now. I actually have lost about 2 pounds this week too.

You are right Laurie at least I know why my throat has been tightening up and I have been throwing up so much lately. I will make it through this just like everything else. I just don't know if I will have to have the hernia removed. I guess I'll find out on the 8th.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Laura,

Those aren't the results you were hoping for, but at least you know what's going on and why you've been having so much difficulty eating. Your doctor will discuss everything with you when the other tests are completed. Having a band loosened isn't fun, but it isn't the end of the road. You'll have a fresh start once everything is taken care of. If it helps, I keep reminding myself that my loosened band is a detour, not the end of the road. Also keep in mind that not everyone gains weight, or not more than a very few pounds, in the situation.

You know you can count on support and encouragement here.

Laurie

Today I had an EGD (day surgery) and was not pleased with the results. The one good thing is my band is not slipped and seems to be okay. However, I have esophigitis with an ulcer, a hiatal hernia, and gastritis. Next week I have a colonoscopy and then a follow up on December 8 to find out exactly what is going on. I only spoke to the nurse today. She said the doc had talked to me but I must have still been out of it. I really hope I don't have to have my band loosened to help with the esophigitis.
