More Things They Don't Tell You in the Seminar
We've been home for two days and I've still been getting stuck, even though it's much warmer in Austin. Luckily, I already had an appointment scheduled at True Results yesterday. I explained my problems, and they had me do the barium swallow under the fluoroscope to check out the band. The verdict was that the placement is perfect and that I "have good restriction". That's really good news. It would totally suck to have something wrong with the band. But then what's my problem? The fluoroscope technicion, who's also banded (and leads the lapband support group I attend) confirmed that elevation can be a problem. She said she went on a trip to Albuquerque and basically didn't eat for a week. She shrugged and said "That's life with the band."
Hmm... So mountains are out. Your lapband wants beach vacations!
