burn that just won't go away.....

Before Thanksgiving 2010, I triedto get rid of reflux symptoms.  My NP did a small .1 unfill and told me to try Prilosec & Zantac, It helped for a short time, but it has been back for several weeks now with a vengence.  The Prilosec and Zantac are no longer helping.  My NP took did another .5 unfill today giving me 6.6cc in my 10cc band,  but she thinks there is much more going on.  

I can no longer tolerate even the smallest of fills and the reflux is ongoing.  Tuesday I will be having a upper GI to check for slippage or other complications.  I truly fear the worst news, I know my body and my band.  I know what I am doing should not be causing reflux.


  1. Sorry to hear you are still having trouble! I hope they get it figured out and fixed quickly.

  2. I'm so sorry you're still having these issues. I hope the Upper GI shows nothing wrong.

  3. Have missed you and sorry to hear about this. Hope you can get it figured out and feel better soon.

  4. SOOOO sorry! I hope this is nothing. My reflux seems better - but it is not completely gone at night. I have no problems at all if I take Zantac before bed. Still, it doesn't seem entirely right....

    Thanks for noticing my absence. I am still here, I better post something!

    Best of luck and I am hoping and praying for good news for you.

  5. I hope it shows that nothing is wrong with the band, and they can really help with the reflux.
