Hi Cazza,

When i eat and feel nothing is going down due to band being tight i have sipped on hot/warmish water, before I eat, and I find not only can I eat but I do not get the stuck feeling! Sometime I am told the band can go in to spasm and that we need to calm it so hot/warmish water helps. I find that in the morning my band is tight, so I just sip on hot/warm water, and then have a cuppa. At 10:30 I then try and have some breakfast, my band is much better at receiving food. I will then sip on water and before lunch will then have some hot/warm water, and wait 10 mins before eating my lunch. This has helped greatly to ensure that I am eating as the band always feels tight during the day but not in the evening – not sure why this is – if anyone knows let me know.

But I have realised that eating slow and enjoying the food is the way to go, especially so that the band and you work together.
