HELP: Something is Stuck in my Lap-Band

Stomach Full

What to do when food gets stuck in your Lap-Band. The first thing to do is stop eating, immediately. You may need to see your surgeon to get an unfill. Make note of the food you ate that became stuck, and be prepared to discuss with your lap-band surgeon.

Stress and the Lap-Band

stress weight gain

When you have stress, be it physical stress (like an illness) or mental stress (like your mother-in-law coming by for a short two week visit)…the body reacts by retaining fluid. You may notice that wedding rings are tighter, and there is more swelling in the legs at night.
