Hi Cazza – ive not been on here for best part of a year – but getting back in to it now as I feel a bit more positive.
However your problems with the leak make me wonder…… Did you find out why your band leaked and if it was due to ‘needle misses’ as I often get punctured to within an inch of my life and the consultant regularly gets the needle stuck in something..? and has to yank it out. I worry that this will cause a leak and maybe already has as I find restriction the first few days after a fill much better and by the time two weeks after – im also back to where I was.
I hope you are sorted now – I sympathise as I had a fill today and find I have to sip extremely slowly for liquid & had problems eating soup as you described above.
