So today was not the best band day I've ever had....For breakfast I have a new obsession that I am not so happy with: Dunkin Donuts, Iced Mocha Coffee with skim milk and splenda. It is basically an iced coffee with chocolate syrup mixed in...SO GOOD! A medium has around 150 calories, so if I budget my calories wisely for the day it doesn't kill me, but isn't the best decision. I also had some plain oatmeal with brown sugar and almonds around 10ish. Here is where it gets bad, I bought chicken teriyaki for lunch, I had about 2 bites and felt stuck...I ended up sliming/PB'ing for 4 HOURS! By far my worse stuck episode ever...I got really scared that I was going to have to go get an unfill. I ended up talking to Angie and explaining how I was feeling with tightness in my chest and constant sliming. She too felt I might need to get an unfill, she told me one last thing to try...sick my fingers down my throat. I'm like WTF....I've been sliming for 4 hours, I highly doubt this is going to help, but feeling hopeless I gave it a whirl. I go to the bathroom @ work, get on all 4's and give it shot...All of a sudden a chunk of chicken comes flying out, and I feel immediate relief!! I can't believe it worked, crossing my fingers I didn't do any band damage. I feel like I should get an upper GI at some point just to check on things..my clinic doesn't usually do this test for no reason, but I feel like with all the PB'ing I've done I should get things checked out, just to make sure. We will see. I have an appointment on March 8th and I will mention it and see what they say. I know you all must be thinking that I am too tight...but I actually feel I need a small fill but am not sure. I have a hard time eating and PB very easily, but I never stay full for long and feel like I'm always hungry. Not sure what that means.
Tomorrow I have an appointment with a new Ob/Gyn, I have just been seeing my PCP for that stuff up until now, but for the past 3 1/2 weeks I have been spotting, which is very un-like me. I use the nuva ring for birth control and have for about 4 months and never had any issues, but maybe this spotting is due to that, or maybe it's due to losing 50lbs?? I don't know, I just want to be fixed! I was also told during pre-op that when I get pregnant it will be a high risk pregnancy due to the band...not sure if that's true or not, but I thought it would be good to find an OB that I'm comfortable with, who knows my history so when it is time there aren't any surprises.
So many wondeful bodily functions to deal with lol. Hope everyone is having a good night! xxoo
