Home From Vacation and Doing MUCH Better

Let me first say to all of you that were concerned about my issues last week.....thank you very, very much and your friendships and concerns are very appreciated. I am doing so much better. I went on straight liquids for a couple of days and today I was able to eat some solid food (a few bites of pork chop, and an egg) for breakfast and it stayed down. I got full very fast. Maybe it was a combination of flying again, my stomach shrinking for pretty much nothing for a week, or being at my sweet spot. Who knows. However, things stayed down. Halleujah!

I called my bariatric surgeon and my primary care physician while I was gone and they told me that I needed to get in to see my primary ASAP when I got home. Went to see her today and she ordered an upper GI. My bariatric surgeon is totally cool with this and wants the results before he gives me another fill. Which is totally understandable. I did call them and tell them that I was able to keep solid food down today, but they still want me to do the upper GI anyway, which I'm totally cool with. I did tell them on the phone that I was scared to death that I'd slipped my band. At least now I'll be able to rest easy and I'll know. However, the fact that I can get some solid protein down is a good sign that I'll be OK. Just got a bug I suppose.

Well, just letting you all know that I'm back at home (I will be so happy to sleep in my own bed tonight) and that I'm OK. I get the upper GI Friday morning, so I'll let you all know how that goes. I will know that day what the results are so I'll post then.

Happy posting everyone.

YAY for food staying down!! Sounds like good new and things just needed to settle down. Hope all goes well on Friday...I really don't think you'd be back to food if it was slipped.

Well, that's what I thought too. Had a few issues late last night. But still no acid reflux though. I think last night with dinner I was just so excited to eat real food that the combination of not chewing and things not setting well made me kinda sick. thlat's ok. It was a PB this time.

I am glad you are keeping food down! I don't know how I missed your previous blog but I don't know that I could have offered any insight, anyway. But I would have said hang in there and try try try fluids. I am so glad to read that it's calming down, though - and I hope the upper GI goes well!

I'll be thinking about you - hang in there!
