Getting a slight unfill today

Omg, this acid thing is getting REAL old.

Yesterday it just went on and on, until late evening when I decided to have some low-fat vanilla ice cream. It seemed to soothe my stomach and tame the acid quite a bit, though it almost felt stuck when I swallowed. I fixed that by drinking some hot broth. I know, not a mix I would necessarily promote, but it DID melt the ice cream. :)

I was able to get some sleep last night, but not restful. I woke up a couple times with a small bit of acid reflux, but once at 3:30 I woke up from a wave of it that nearly drowned me. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!! It burns your throat and goes into your back sinus cavities... ACK!

So today about noon I go in for a slight unfill. I hope and pray that works. I'm not as bad with it this morning as I was yesterday, but it's still rolling around in there. And for me, Mylanta isn't cutting it.


  1. ugh I havent had that yet with the band but when I was 9months pregnat with my daughter It was soooooooooooooooooo bad, gag, I cant even think about that. I hope you feel better!

  2. Glad you got an unfill. I dont know how people who dont have bands or anyone lives with acid reflux on a daily basis. when I slipped my band i had it so bad i was waking up with it coming out of my nose ! it was NASTY ! They unfill should do the trick, i hope it does for ya

  3. Thanks, y'all, and so far it feels good. Added to blog.
