Too Tight

Recommended Posts

Has this happened to anyone else? I got a fill over a week ago, felt great. Then Friday and Saturday, I couldn't eat a thing, but I could drink as long as I did it slow. Then yesterday, I didn't feel as tight so I was able to eat a little bit. I honestly thought I would have to have an emergency unfil because my band was so tight it I could barely swallow my own saliva. Today I feel fine and will take it easy again. I didn't know that even after a week that my band would tighten up so much. Is that normal?

I don't know if it's "normal" but it has happened to me. Fills under fluoro that seemed perfect but then tightened up a week later. I have had two complete unfills in the past five months. Just make sure you stick to liquids when it happens and I find Maalox helps too...seems to ease the swelling that is likely making the band so tight. Sorry to hear this is happening to you too.

Just don't let it go on too long. If you can't drink well, then you

may need a little unfill.


When you say band revision, what did you have done? Just wondering since I've had some issues and had to had port re-attached, removed and put back in, etc. Haven't heard of anyone with similar stories.
