Hi-SJ
Sorry to hear your story, I know just how you feel:(
I must ask what is pb?
My Old hospital told me not to be silly and just swallow. (The nurse made me feel it is all in my head)
The trouble is when I went to have the fuild taken out of the band I was often in hospital days waiting, as they only did it under xray and one have one man that could empty the band:(
The last time it needed to be emptied was new years eve 2008.
When I phoned my hospital they told me to come in, but he was on holiday for 5 days, so I would have to stay in and wait. I then decided to go to Oxford John Radcliff, they were lovely and emptied it the next day, saying there was no contrast going past the blockage.
The thing is it happened so many times and each time they keep you in for fuilds, it was really damaging my job, let alone the pain and acid burning me.
