WTH?!

So, starting yesterday, whenever I try to eat solids I get a massive sharp pain in my stomach. Not up high around my band but down in my lower stomach. I talked to my doctor today and he asked if I wanted to cocme in and meet him at the hospital. I had to work until five and asked if I could come in tomorrow instead. So, I will see him tomorrow morning at his satalite office.

He doesn't really know what it is, but he said he will probably do an unfill. I am not sure if we are talking a full unfill or just a partial. I haven't had a fill in about 7 weeks and this is the first issue I have had. I have been feeling progressively tighter over the last few days. I hope it is not something bigger like a slip or something else... however, I am glad I am going in. I don't want to let any problem fester so that it turns into a problem.

I have only been able to comfortably have liquids (no pain) and have had a couple of protein shakes today. The Dr. said to stay away from solids until I see him. I am not devastated or really even freaked out about an unfill... even if it is a full unfill. I am way more freaked out about doing damage if I leave it the way it is.

I am not going to lie though.... I have thought once or twice about a brat on a bun this weekend! :)

I will keep you all posted! Happy middle of the week!

I hope everything is okay! Do you still have your gallbladder? Band Groupie said when she had an attack it was down low. Take care of yourself!

I do still have my gallbladder, and I was thinking that could be the issue... we will see tomorrow.

Good luck Anna! I had a scare back in December and got a complete unfill(only for a few days). I was over filled and everything hurt going down - well the minute they heard that they said get your ass in for an unfill and upper GI. I hope it's nothing serious - let us know.
P.S. - I was surprised by how much restriction I still had with no fluid. I ate a lot of bread though!
