Comment:
Second day of treatment the pill apparently got lodged in my stomach. History significant for prior Lap Band surgery and the lodged pill caused a severe coughing episode that nudged the Band causing GI restriction. Symptoms consistent with too tight banding. Resolved after Upper GI study and removal of 1cc saline from the band. No other treatment and no further problem. Scary at the time.
