Hi Guys

I’m currently having a very tight week with my band sometimes struggling to even get fluids in. I can not eat much apart from soup and yogurts. Weight loss is amazing but I feel I nee to eat more because I don’t wanna get ill. What could be causing this extreme tightness??

Thank you


Hi Lorna

Treeza is right, you should probably ring your team for advice.

Several factors could be at play here including change in temperature, stress, dehydration (from central heating etc) or general illness but as we are not clinicians, it’s always best to contact people who are.

Hope you get some answers soon. So long as the soup you are eating is highly nutritious, I don’t think you need to worry too much about not eating much for a few days or so. Hydration is THE most important thing to remember at every stage of the wls journey.

Please contact your team though and let us know how you get on 😉
