I know I have been a horrible blog friend lately, I am so behind in reading and what not. I have a semi excuse - I had my wisdom teeth out and have been in bed since Wednesday.

Something happened this morning. I was sleeping in bed and I woke up with an indescribable amount of pain in my chest. Its a similar pain to what I get when I'm going to regurgitate because something is stuck in my band, but its so much worse I was so scared. It was eight am. At five thirty I had taken 2 panadol and 1 nerofen with a glass of milk because I was in a lot of pain in my mouth. I sat up for five minutes with that to make sure it went down. At seven am I was back asleep, and my mum came in my room to give me my antibiotic. I just took it with water and went back to sleep immediately. Then an hour later - BAM!!!

I tried lots of things. I got up and walked around, I drank milk, I tried water, then I tried forcing what ever it was down with half a piece of toast and some took about an hour before I was not crying. It was the most intense pain I've ever experienced in 20 years. All day I have felt like there is something in my oseophagus stuck still. Its not NEARLY as painful...but its just uncomfortable!!! I've drunk lots etc etc but I just have no idea what this is.

My friend with a band said it could be oseophagitis, inflammation of the osephagus but yeah. I just wanted to know what you guys thoughts was? Has this happened to anyone else?

Thank you in advance for any advice, it would be so appreciated!!


  1. Get better soon!

    I'm not sure what that could have been. I'm curious to see the answers.

  2. no idea! But like Grace I am curious. Hope you feel better my dear! Make sure you are getting plenty of rest!

  3. Oh no Liz you poor thing! Maybe you should ring ur doc? it doesn't sound good whatever is it!

  4. At this moment, i hope your doing fine already. Whatever problems that occur with regards to your band, call you doctor immediately. You might be suffering from inflammation. Moreover, few who has band make it a point to chew well everything they take for it may got stuck before you band. Also, Phoenix lap band surgeons said that, try not to take too much fluids when this thing happen again, making yourself full with fluids can make you vomit and make the whole thing worse.
