Answer 1 Most of the patients do have this general query that they are feeling sick after having the lap band surgery and more than the number of these patients all have the same query that would they will feel sick or nausea. This is a common issue with lap band because the system of this Lap-Band only meant to limit the food that you are taking in. If you are feeling to such problems like sickness and others, this could be a resultant of failing to chew the food properly or the failure of diet plan recommended by your doctor. This could be also a signal to the placement of your lap band. If this problem continues with your Lap-Band, contact your surgeon as soon as possible. Avoid vomiting all the time because this can make the pouch of your tiny stomach to stretch. Vomiting can also perform slippage of the LAP-BAND from your small stomach, if the band slip out from your undersized stomach one more operation may be involve in the whole procedure.
To avoid sickness you should go with proper diet plan advised by your doctor. You should only take liquids and soft food in the first week, later you can go with your desired dietary plan. Always chew your food properly, this will less the vomiting tendency and helps in digestion also. Be sure that you have added plenty of nutritional food to your plan that will give you much energy to work and enjoy.
