Has my Lapband Slipped?

I have had my lapband for over 5 years. I basically have vomited up phlegm after about 6 weeks post surgery. I have talked with my surgeon and he advised me that this was a norm. Lately I have been having difficultly keeping food and/or liquids down. There are times when it feels like a red hot poker has been wrapped around my breast line. Now on the other hand I have lost over 150 lbs. but in the last 2 years I have also regained.

it is a slip until proven otherwise in my opinion, ie an UGI read by your surgeon.
