Ive had a flipped port, now a slipped band!
Well, after 12 months of no restriction and reflux, I finally had a gastroscope yesterday and ive got bad gastritis and my stomach has slipped up thru my band causing a large pouch.... the whole thing is inflammed and generally p#$%ed off.
so surgery for me next week to fix it.
my symptoms were - bad reflux (like.. bad), PBing/sliming in my sleep and a LOT of burping....and no restriction.
No pain whatsoever, no problems with my port or port site.
I havent slept more than 5-6hrs each night for the past 6 weeks or so which is very unusual for me - I slept 11 hours last night! I am actually relieved something has been found and can be fixed - its better than thinking im slightly crazy and exaggerating that there might be something wrong. Ive known something hasnt been right for the past 12 months.
Im must the the only person who is actually glad to have my surgeon find my band has slipped! now i can get it fixed and move on.
(ive been banded 2.5 years)
