Sick, sick, sick

Holy cow this has been a rough day. As you can tell by the time of this post I'm have trouble sleeping.

I have a question for the ladies out there.......TMI warning.......feel free to turn back now if you would prefer I not subject you to oversharing.

With that out of the way, do any of you ladies have issues with tightness on the first day of your menstral cycle? I have since I got my band, but nothing like today. I can't even keep tea down today. I don't know if this is normal or what. I know that I was fine yesterday. I also ate a lot though. With the Superbowl watch party I pretty much grazed all night long. It was bad. The monster reared it's ugly head big time last night. It was like I wasn't banded at all. Now, I know being due to start my cycle had a lot to do with that, but this is ridiculous.

Questions, concerns, ideas.........let me know ladies. I'm all ears.

Hi there, I am also up when I wish I were asleep!! Sorry to hear you're feeling unwell-- and I don't have enough experience to say whether your tightness is typical.
What I will say is that if you cannot hold down fluids, it is a good idea to call your doctor's office and let them know what's going on-- you might be inflammed and need a bit of UNfill. I'm just going on what I've learned from my doctor's office and common sense-- but you don't want to get dehydrated.

I hope you're feeling better shortly...

Just an update on the deplorable condition I was in last night.......MUCH BETTER today. I'm going easy on myself though. Water and about 1/2 - 1 cup of fresh veggies for lunch. Not the best for staying power, but they're going down ok. Right now I'm already ahead of the game from where I was at this point yesterday. Don't know what caused it, just know that it wasn't any fun. It could have been any number of things. My father in law just got over the flu and I was his house Sunday for the Superbowl watch party, or it could have been my cycle. I usually have rough times with keeping food down then cuz my band feels so tight.
Silver lining: Lost 5 pounds yesterday, but I'm sure it was just water weight.
