Hi natalie + sharlotte

Well i can tell you i am sick twice a week and occasionally even more. Cant say it is nice, but it really isn’t like vommitting…… Usually you get this discomfort in you chest, and sometimes if you walk around it can go….. Sometimes you have to go to the toilet and if you cough it will come up. The discomfort i can only discribe as , “if you have ever had a boiled sweet and swollowed it whole……. ” you will get to know the feeling once you move further on with our fills .

I tell you this ladies not to scare you in anyway ,it’s just to make you aware. Our band can be our best friend but occasionally it can play games. I can eat something on 1 day and have the same the next day and 2 mouthfulls in and it doesn’t stay down . 🙁 . My biggest problem is…… Eating slowly, 1 year on and i still find it difficult to eat slow. My nurse gives me the 20/20 rule speach …… ( nothing bigger then a 20p and chew 20 times) . Having told you this , my buddy from BOSPA has only been sick twice in 15 months, so we are all different and somethimes i think i push it too far and always go for those last couple of mouthfulls ( AND I SHOULDN ‘T……. Old habbits are hard to break ) .

Best wishes
