Has anyone experienced that illness (upper respiratory infection - just a bad cold, really - congestion, slight sore throat, sneezing, coughing) causes band tightness? I am CRAZY tight right now and having a little nausea and abdominal pain every time I eat anything more solid than hummus. I haven't really had a really bad cold in the nearly 3 years since I've had my band so this is new to me.
I managed a few bites of very tender flank steak tonight, and some roasted acorn squash (delicious!) for dinner tonight and now have a stomach ache. I'm not stuck, it's a different feeling and it's sticking around long after dinner.
Maybe I'm taking too many pills (Dayquil/Nyquil plus vitamins) and they're hurting my stomach, but I didn't take any cold meds today until just a few minutes ago.
Maybe I just need a day or two of liquids/mushies to get my stomach back on track. Perhaps I'll pick up some protein powder and do smoothies and soup for a couple of days.
