I went in for an unfill today - she took out a full cc. that's a lot.
My band has been so tight & I've become increasingly miserable. Last nite was the last straw - I was up most of the night with the worst heartburn ever. Frankly, it made me panicky & scared. I love where I'm at & I love my band which means I need to take care of it. Just like you, I know that hearburn & night regurgitation can be a sign of slippage or erosion. Something happening to my band really worries me.
Looking back now, I can see that bouts of heartburn have steadily been increasing over the last few months and, in tandem, my eating habits have been getting worse. Sometimes I eat crappy slider food just to get something - anything - in me. not good.
So today, the fill whisperer took out 1cc. We're going to give my belly a few weeks to calm down & then we'll start easing back up the fills (if needed). I know what I want from maintenance - I want to be able to eat small amounts of a wide variety of foods without constantly pbing, fighting heartburn or popping gas-x. I want it to be easy - think that's too much to ask?
