Is GAS the new normal?

There have been lots of "firsts" lately. First time getting really stuck, first mini pb episode, and first time to hit 241 since the band! (That is 28 lbs if you are keeping count with me!) Aren't firsts great? I am so glad to know that I have some restriction after my first fill, last week. I have found a few things that I will probably just try to avoid altogether.

Since I've had my band, I have gas all of the time. Is this normal? I think I should be buying stock in Gas X. There have been a couple of days at work that my stomach has literally grumbled all day from gas movement. Everybody thinks my stomach was growling. They think I am starving myself.....that is so not the case.

I have been so busy with work lately I feel that I have neglected my duties as a blogger. Work seems to get in the way of alot of things.

Give me yalls opinion. I work in an office of about thirty people. My office is on the back hall and is generally laid back but still professional. I have a coworker that is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying...loud, overbearing, talks too much, etc. We have just shifted our work loads and changed duties around. I gained ALOT of work. This coworker, on the other hand, has very little. Therefore, it gives her time to roam the hall and talk all day. I don't have time or motive to spend my day talking to her. Several of us have considered asking the supervisor to move her to a front office. It would fit more with her new work load and get her out of my office. Do you consider this underhanded or backstabbing. I do like a person, but she definitely sucks as a coworker!

Gotta go to work now!


  1. Totally do is not backstabbing my opinion. You are not being mean and there is more than one person complaining. I am not sure I get gas...was does that feel like??? I have constant gurgling as fluid of food moves through the band this wek and it is so loud it is embarrassing to eat with other that the same????

  2. Since my last fill, I have had a lot more gurggling and general stomach noise. I think it has to do with all the extra air in the empty part of my stomach or something. I don't really know, but I have heard others mention that too. I agree you should ask for that person to be moved. It sounds like it makes more sense for everyone.

  3. I have definitely had more burping. I used to never burp and now it's very easy to do so. And my stomach rumbles all the time at the first sign of hunger it starts up. I would get everyone's opinion on the matter of the coworker and if most of them feel the same then do it! There's nothing like having to deal with someone who wants to be a distraction all day.
