Throwing up blood lap band

Common Questions and Answers about Throwing up blood lap band


768754 tn?1373922337 I initially found out about my diagnosis by going to my doc and getting a second opinion on the Lap band procedure. My blood pressure was high and he wanted to up my atenolol. I advised my doc I am too fatigued now and would not want to up the med if possible. He looked at my past labs and noted my liver enzymes have been abnormal for some time and ordered a Hep panel. I'm certainly glad he did. Anyhow, my general practitioner thinks that the surgery would still be a good option.
760893 tn?1278185328 I was told by my new bariatric surgeon that you should NEVER be considered for lap band when you have GERD. The two are not compatible. I ended up in the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack and then had erosion to my esophagus because the band was basically pushed up against my esophageal opening by the stomach acids... I am hopefully having it removed this next month. I have survived on minimal calories and only lost 30lbs. Will NEVER recommend ANYONE get a band.
93210 tn?1287457826 offers a good review of this procedure I copied it below.... "Lap-Band" Information and Review The Lap-Band is an inflatable banding system that is placed around the upper stomach to limit food intake in severely obese individuals. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) gave BioEnterics' Inamed unit permission to market the Lap-Band in June 2001. However, recent concerns have surfaced regarding the safety of the medical device.

Avatar n tn I'd go for gastric or lap-band or something but think a decent surgeon wouldn't touch me with a ten foot pole right now :) Anyway... thanks for the education! I guess I could try the smaller Ambien, and then try to sleep first. The 10s work for 6 hours or so.... if I take it at 2 in the morning then I am going to be having a tough time getting going for work. Thanks!!!
Avatar m tn Sometimes she just lies on the floor and cries until it subsides enough for me to pick her up and hold her on my lap. If it is her shoulder, arm or wrist, she can't use her arm. Sometimes the pain can start somewhere and spread to another location in the same 'episode' (with more than one place hurting at a time). The pain lasts for about 20 minutes then subsides. It's just heartbreaking to hear her cry and ask why this has to happen to her and why does she have to have this pain!!!
Avatar m tn They will have you check your Complete blood count and see if your immunity stays up and your lymph nodes are ok. They can take you off if necessary but you will get worse if you don't take the meds for TB too. So, I think I would try to take them and stay on them if you can. They may make you feel sick but if you go off of them the TB may become resistant so you have to either go on them or not. I would ask these same questions to your doctor before starting. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Honestly yes I am afraid of being put under and the pain but I am even more afraid of throwing up after the surgery as I hear that's common. I have a vomit phobia! Please please tell me your experiences with this surgery. I feel like docs always play everything down. So scared. Thanks all!
Avatar f tn Although it wasn't communicable that way I really didn't want to tell her I had had other ways I could have gotten it in the past so I just waited when they did my blood test and she said she'd do a liver panel but not the hep test....Then my enzymes came up in the 200s on my physical and then she ok'd it and there it was.
284078 tn?1282620298 I have done my best to warm people about the sight threatening side effects from Topamax, but this last week I have seen the worst case scenario up close and personal. This patient was a 65 year-old man on only 25 mg of Topamax a day for headaches. It took us over 8 hours just to get the eye pressure under 50 (which is still about 3 times normal.) He was rapidly losing vision from an attack of acute angle closure glaucoma IN BOTH EYES.
299260 tn?1304219705 Unfortunatly I will HAVE to continue the shots for 3 more months, I have to get prepared to stay at the hospital for atleast 1 day or 3 if the lap ends up being an open suregery, plus I have to get blood donors.
Avatar f tn At time I called dr I was not throwing up. By the time my hubby got home I was throwing up. He called dr got answering service and told her to tell dr he was taken me to ER now wasn't going to wait for test the next day. I had acute pancertitis.spent four days in hospital. Follow up from hospital stay was ten days later I'd been hurting on left side going around to back. He did blood work levels were normal that was Friday. Monday I was back at dr office blood work again levels were high again.
Avatar n tn I had a gallstone attack in Nov 2005 had no idea I had gallstones. It did make my blood pressure go up. I was in the hospital for 5 day's because my blood pressure was so high! I had never had problems with high blood pressure nor do I now. I did have them removed while I was there. I guess you can say I had them and didn't know it. If I had known that's what it was I would have had it done LONG AGO. I also had some episodes like you after eating just thought it was the pizza...
Avatar n tn dizzy and feel like throwing up. I feel light headed and like I'm going to tip over. I really wish I knew the cause. It almost feels like when I try to focus when I'm dizzy it makes me feel like throwing up even more so. All of these symptoms and noone seems to put a name to this horrible problem.
612551 tn?1450025775 I'm typing on my laptop sitting on a sofa and I didn't let him get in my lap so I could put my laptop there. So, he's on the back of the couch with his rear up against the back of my neck. Your help is in the "best answer" category and it joins the great help Margo has provided on this thread and many other times.

299260 tn?1304219705 I guess I'll be the first to end the string of BFP's we had going - AF showed up yesterday afternoon. :"( Always such a bummer. Vortex - That is so great that you got to hear the heartbeat again. I'm so happy to hear that everything continues to go well for you. Do you plan to find out the baby's sex at your 20 week appointment? mommyin09 - Hope you see that +OPK soon! Joyce - I saw your HPT pics, how exciting. Good luck at the doctor.
Avatar f tn Sunday with my feelin my son's hurt I had the craziest dizzies, chest pain, pain in my left hand, my hips hurt. My body was wound up tighter than a rubber band on one of those toy planes. Bandida is right! The mind affects our body and our sugar by the way. I have never been able to shake that feeling on my own. I got out a book that is helping me now. Eckhart Tolle's "Awakening your life's purpose". It calmed me a bit. Reading the steps, step 3 especially, helps.
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Shysana: Feel better! I've had a cold since last week & I'm getting closer to O. It doesn't make it easy to be "in the mood" ;-) Take care! Guesito: Great news!

Avatar f tn Thanks so much for responding to my question and sharing your thoughts with me and the others in this chat!! Sorry I have not responded as I have been sick wiht flu. Goodness sakes, I am becoming useless on the farm here not being able to get back into my "normal life"!! I am still having the pelvic pains, which have worsened because of throwing up from flu. I have another "personal" question and I am a bit embarrased to ask, but I want to know if I am okay or not.....
Avatar n tn I've had an ultrasound and a saline erection due to the main problem I have (shrinking penis) and the doctors found nothing untoward with either the tissue or the blood flow. It doesn't happen all the time for me but it is a regular occurance.
Avatar n tn My husband didn't know I had started spotting and we had sex. Afterward when he cleaned up he had very RED blood like before my surgery. It wasn't the dark left over stuff that my last two consisted of. He was shocked to say the least. I can recall my doctor saying to me, after my surgery when I was still in the hospital, that I was well on my way to being period free, NOT... he didn't know what he was talking about.
Avatar m tn Hi, i see it's been a while since you posted your question on Victoza and weight loss. The first 7 days of taking this medicine and watching my calorie and nutrient intake, i've lost 7 lbs. in 7 days. i was no happy about taking this, since i have hypo-thyroid & there were 3 months my regular thyroid medication was off the market.
439903 tn?1380141482 even if it's not picked up in blood tests, that's what it is. So.. he took more blood, for more invasive tests and I have to call next week to see what those tests are. But whatever they say, it will be Lovonex. (I thought as much) Sam.. Are you taking your shots after ER or after ET? Juana.. how bout you? I get my first box of goodies tomorrow.. woo hoo.. youd think it would be a Mink coat for how much I paid. oooh.. sumpin funny..

10947 tn?1281407852 I had the worst rash all over my chest and along my band line. i ended up breaking out in hives all over my body it got soo bad. I'm allergic to 3 different Victorias Secret bras. My doctor sent me to the hospital, they ended up putting me on steroidal lotions, 2 different ones- westcort cream and triamcinoline. they worked. My rash is back with a different bra now. Does anyone know a brand that won't do this???
Avatar f tn The way renal failure is supposed to work when it's Time, is that the toxins build up so high in the blood that they cross the blood-brain barrier. When that happens, the dog loses its personality and really isn't "there". Well, that's the textbook case. It never really happened with Chica. She just got slower and slower and finally stopped eating the last couple of days, but her personality was still intact. She still knew us and her pack mate, Maggie.
