post lap band surgery

I'm concerned over my daughter in law's eating habits after her lap band surgery. She had numerous counselings prior to procedure & we were told she would not be able to drink carbonated beverages, eat sweets or pastas or breads. Since the surgery she says she has problems with eating protein foods as meat or foods that would be good for her. She will eat a small amount & then proceed to vomit up food in bathroom. She then eats ice cream, cake ,chips & dip, carbonated sodas,  candy & so forth without any trouble. Today for instance she has had a large bowl of ice cream for breakfast , chips & dip & soda later & numerous chocolate candies. Thats all by noon. I thought eating sweets could make you diabetic after this surgery. She hasn't been back to her surgeon in 6 months or more. Is this ok or should we be worried? Thank you.

Eating soft sweets is a common trap after lap band - those foods just slip down easily through the band but obviously carry many mnay calories and will defeat the purpose of the operation
They will not cause diabetes any more than they would in an obese patient without the band
Yr daughter MUST see her surgeon and his dietician ASAP - otherwise she will fail the operation
