How to diagnose band problems
You should get this test as soon as possible. Night-time aspiration can cause pneumonia and lung abscess. You don't want that.
My recommendation is to go see your doctor ASAP, or start seeing a new doctor that is not judgemental and wants to see you despite your occasional shortfalls and let him help you get back into the program and get the band back inorder. Gastric band requires a lot of effort for it to work well. It needs a motivated patient and a strong doctor-patient relationship for this to work.
