After reading alot of posts on lapbandtalk.com I have come away with not wanting to know a few things.
The main thing is that I do not want to learn how to cheat the band. I do not understand wanting to cheat the band. I am self pay and that would be like burning the hard earned money to pay for it.
I have skipped over posts relating to this subject.
Something I don't want to ever experience again is a stuck feeling. I haven't had a fill and casually was chewing seedless grapes when I swallowed one WHOLE. It was almost immediate discomfort then serious pain. I freaked. I prayed. I tried to belch, burp, anything. I pounded on my chest bent over and tried to puke it up. Well it finally went somewhere, not up. Scared the living crud out of me.
I have to watch this. Also chewing gum. I have in the past swallowed. Bad idea with the band.
Some more randomness on lap band stuff:
