Stuck! Really, painfully stuck!

Ouch! Ate a small piece of fish last night then remembered I hadn't drunk the water my doc says we should have before a meal to move any mucus plug in the band (nice thought). Gulped half a glass of water, forgetting the band, and OH MY GOD - such pain, I thought I was going to pass out, had to keep walking around, trying to burp, to do something to move whatever was STUCK. Took about a minute and some delightful sliming and the fish (which I guess got moved into the band with the water) moved - the relief!! But I never want to experience that again. The darling husband tried to see if I was okay, and I could just croak out, "leave me alone" before I struggled out to the garden. Didn't want the kids to see me in pain. Anyhoo, that taught me a lesson.

The good news is that I've lost 2 kg since my fill 8 days ago - hoorah!!!


  1. OUCH!!! Been there before. The water really does make it worse - and I'm like you.. when in pain, leave me alone and especially don't offer me water lol. Glad the fish went through!!

  2. So sorry to hear you had a bad episode. I too had my first bad one on Monday!! And you are right, you don't want to add fluid when you are already stuck!!

    What I do sometimes when I am not sure if I am getting to the point where I may be getting stuck, I will take a baby sip of water to see if it goes down easily or starts hurting. If it didn't go down easily, then I slow my eating way down to allow the food to process through better.

  3. It's certainly no fun and I've found that water makes it worse for me. Congrats on the 2 kilo loss!
