This is another of my violets. I didn't make an entry yesterday because I was busy with other things around here. I also am very tired today. I haven't been sleeping well. I am waking with acid reflux lately. I am frustrated. Since my last fill I have had to take meds for acid reflux. My surgeon said that it would stop as I lost weight but it seems worse now. I made an entry on LapBandTalk.com today asking if anyone else is having this problem. There are many who are I found. Some of them suggested what they have used to alleviate the reflux. One person suggested a tablespoon of cider vinegar before going to bed to neutralize the acid. Another said it sounded like I am too tight and need a slight unfill. I haven't had a fill since August and it doesn't seem like that would make a difference to me, however I didn't start getting this until after my last fill. I am wondering if the reason I can't eat in the morning is because I am swollen around the band from the reflux all night. This can't be good for me. I've tried lots of acid reducers and am now taking a combination of those and PepcidComplete. I still have to take a Tums during the night as I start coughing and can feel the gurgling in my stomach. Yuck!! Do any of my Sisters in the Band have any suggestions?
